Hannah Slovacek (Austin, Texas/Westlake) relieved Hyson for the remainder of the fifth inning. Lauren O'Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) pitched the sixth inning for Georgetown.

In the second game on Saturday night, the Hoyas managed just two hits, one apiece for Slovacek and Hyson against Kent State. The Golden Flashes scored five runs off three Georgetown errors in the fifth inning.
