OWINGS MILLS, Md. – Stevenson scored off the international tiebreaker rule in the bottom of the 10th inning of game one to key a doubleheader sweep of McDaniel in non-conference softball action on Wednesday.

The Mustangs (17-22) broke a 1-all deadlock in the bottom of the 10th for a 2-1 victory before plating two runs in the bottom of the fifth to break a 3-all deadlock and complete the sweep with a 5-3 win.

Sam Stitely (Westminster, Md./North Carroll) led the Green Terror (20-10) with three hits in the twinbill. Caroline Brehm (Hanover, Pa./New Oxford) recorded 15 strikeouts in the complete-game effort in game one.

Brittany King went 3-for-3 in the nightcap with two home runs for Stevenson.

In the opener, Amy Baumgardner (Hanover, Pa./South Western) led off the game with an infield single before Lauren Fusco (Laurel, Md./St. Vincent Pallotti) raked a single up the middle to put two on.

After Erinne Warrenfeltz (Smithsburg, Md./Middletown) was hit by a pitch to load the bases, Jackie Liebowitz (Bellerose, N.Y./Benjamin N. Cordozo) singled to center to score Baumgardner for a 1-0 lead.

A Lisa Bilski two-out home run in the bottom of the seventh tied the game and forced extra innings.

After neither team could get the forced runner home from second base in the eighth or ninth innings, Bilski sacrificed Kristin Urban to third in the home 10th before a Kristen Fassler bunt single allowed Urban to score.

In game two, King cleared the fence in left-center with one out in the bottom of the second for a 1-0 lead.

A two-out walk to Bilski and Fassler double stretched the lead to 2-0 in the third before King led off the fourth with her second home run in two at bats.

Leigh Blohm (Bel Air, Md./Toms River North [N.J.]) reached on an infield single to lead off the fifth inning before singles from Rachel Sidney (East Meadow, N.Y./East Meadow) and Stitely scored Blohm and put runners at second and third with one out.

Jordan Beans (Hanover, Pa./Hanover) laced a single up the middle to score both runners and tie the game.

Urban led off the bottom of the inning with a single before a two-out bunt single from Lindsay Kuczak put runners at first and second.

After a pitching change, King greeted Brehm with a double through the right side to score both runners for a 5-3 lead.

The Green Terror returns to action at Hood on Thursday. The first game begins at 3 p.m.
