In the game against Hampton, Niagara (7-9) was led by a four RBI output by Aileen Hinton (Barker) and 3-for-4 performance by Desarae Maldonado that included two RBI. Amanda Werth (Gasport) drove home runs on a double.

Jennifer Sansano picked up her second complete game win of the weekend. Niagara softball travels to Youngstown State for a doubleheader on Wednesday.
