HOW IT HAPPENED
-Centre opened the contest with a four-run first inning before adding two runs in the third to make it a 6-0 lead.

-Sewanee only placed four runners on base the entire game. In the third, the Tigers had an opportunity to break the shutout. After a leadoff single by Charlsey Shirey, she advanced to third after a bunt sacrifice by Amanda Watters and a groundout by Katie Roth.

-Jackie O'Reilly made it more interesting with a two-out walk, but the rally would be shortlived thanks to a pop up.

-Caroline Sweetin (0-4) allowed four first inning runs on four hits.

CENTRE KEY STATISTICS
