The LSU Eunice softball team continued its winning ways on Monday, traveling to Copiah-Lincoln Community College and sweeping the doubleheader by scores of 2-1 and 9-3.
"It's the first time we've been on a road trip and played that day," head coach Andy Lee said.
"The first game, Julienne threw a gem. In the second game, we did what we've done a lot, we got a big lead and sat on it," Lee added.
In the opener, the Lady Bengals (22-2) saw a great pitching performance by freshman Julienne Broussard, who tossed a complete game and allowed three hits and one run while striking out nine batters.
Taylor Simon and Ashley Subervielle each finished 2-for-3, while Codi Covington, Randi Vosburg and Pam Wainwright each had one hit.
The Lady Bengals broke open a scoreless game in the fourth inning when Simon singled before scoring on Subervielle's two out RBI single two batters later.
After seeing Co-Lin tie the game in the bottom of the fourth on a solo home run, LSU Eunice scored the eventual winning run in the fifth inning when Covington connected for a solo home run of her own over the right-center field wall.
The second game, Simon tallied a 3-for-4 hitting line with a double, triple and home run, along with two RBI, to lead the Lady Bengals, who also received two hits from Brooke Rozas and Morgan Tauzin.
In the first inning, LSU Eunice scored a pair of runs on Simon's two run homer to center field before the hosts took the lead with three runs in the bottom of the first inning.
The Lady Bengals took the lead for good in the third inning, started off with a double by Simon, before seeing Brooke Clark connect on an RBI single and Subervielle knock a two-run double.
They added their final two runs in the fourth when Covington was hit by a pitch and brought home by Kelsey Hollier's triple, before Hollier scored on Clark's sacrifice fly for the game's final run.
Brooklynn Guillot earned the win in the second game, tossing six innings and allowing nine hits and three runs while striking out four batters.
Elizabeth Delafield tossed a perfect seventh inning to wrap up the game and the sweep.
The Lady Bengals now ready for a long weekend of games in Florida, traveling to play seven games over three days in the Northwest Florida Tournament beginning on Thursday.
"Those panhandle Florida teams are always really good, and we'll see how the arms handle playing back-to-back and the long trip," Lee said.
