The LSU Eunice softball team continued its winning ways on Friday, traveling on the road and grabbing a pair of 8-0 wins over Jeff Davis Community College.
The Lady Bengals (34-4) upped their winning streak to seven with the victories, finishing with eight of their 17 total hits going for extra bases and saw their pitchers combine to allow three hits on the afternoon.
"I thought the girls played great; both pitchers threw great. Offensively, we hit everything hard and swung it as a team very well," head coach Andy Lee said.
In the opener, the Lady Bengals scored two runs in the third and fourth innings before posting four runs in the fifth to finish the game early.
Brooke Clark was the only hitter to finish with two hits - both doubles - as Brooke Thomas, Codi Covington, Kelsey Hollier, Ashley Subervielle, Pam Wainwright and Randi Vosburg each notched one hit.
Thomas and Hollier each drove home two RBIs, while Clark's RBI on her first double opened the scoring.
In the third inning, Clark drove home Covington before LSU Eunice added a second run on a Jeff Davis error. An inning later, Hollier doubled to deep center field to bring home both Vosburg and Covington.
The four runs in the fifth came on an error, an RBI single by Vosburg, and a two-run double by Thomas.
Starter Julienne Broussard kept Jeff Davis off balance all afternoon, pitching a shutout on two hits while striking out two batters.
The second game was decided quickly as the Lady Bengals scored six runs in the first three innings.
RBI singles by Hollier and Nolan during the first inning before an RBI groundout by Thomas in the second inning helped the Lady Bengals put three runs on the board before adding three more in the third inning on an RBI single by Clark, a sacrifice fly from Subervielle and a single from Clark before coming around to score.
Hollier's two-run homer to left field in the seventh capped the afternoon's scoring.
Hollier racked up three RBIs and three hits to lead the way for Lady Bengals, while Nolan added two hits, and Clark, Simon, Brooke Rozas and Caitlen Blanchard each finished with one hit.
Thomas, Nolan, Clark, Subervielle, and Simon each added an RBI as well.
Brooklyn Guillot shut down Jeff Davis, allowing just one hit and no runs, while walking none and striking out four during her five innings of work.
Elizabeth Delefield finished off the final two innings, allowing four walks while holding the hosts hitless and striking out three batters.
The Lady Bengals travel to take on Meridian Community College on Monday afternoon with a doubleheader beginning at 2 p.m., pushed back from its original Saturday date due to expected rain in the Meridian area.
