For the first time in a long time, WA swept the season series with Acton Boxborough. On Sunday WA beat AB 10-4 at home. Monday proved to be more of the same as WA pounded out 16 runs on 17 hits for a  16-10 win.

The hits came early and often in this game lead by Emily Chateauneuf and Alexa Sullivan. On the day they accounted for 6 hits, another HR for Chateaunuf (7 on the year) a double for Sullivan and 3 RBIs each. Several players had multi hit games, Morgan Ross, Kayleigh McHugh, Ally Mooney, Meagan Scanell and Angela Alibrandi all had 2 hits.

The game was close through the second inning with WA on top 5-3. In the top of the third WA broke the game open with an 8 run 7 hit attack. The big damage was done by Scannell  with a  single blast with the bases loaded, driving in two runs. Alibrandi hit a double that knocked in Sullivan and Scannell. From there WA cruised home to the win.

Angela Alibrandi started in the bump for WA. The freshman pitched into the fourth inning leaving the game with a 16-7 lead. Christie Raymond came in and pitched the 5th and 6th innings only giving up three runs on four hits. The bottom of the 7th saw the debut of another WA freshman hurler Emma Paulauskas . In her first action for the varsity Emma finished up the win allowing no runs on one hit. 

With this win WA moves to 7-6 on the year with another DCL contest this Wednesday at Waltham.
