Paige Mulry (Pittsfield, Mass.) then reached first on a fielder’s choice and Lee slid under the tag to reach third. Brittney Veler (Santa Rosa, Calif.) then cleared the bases and made it 3-1 with her team-leading sixth home run of the season.
- Villanova cut into the Friars’ lead in the top of the fourth. Brittany Husk singled, scoring teammate Natalie Segovia to make it 3-2.
