After Victoria Pitney stroked a one-out single in the fourth, courtesy runner Rachel Crowley stole second and scored on a throwing error on a grounder from Luccia Feraco to give the No. 9 Rebels (6-3) the home win. Casey Arpin struck out eight for Notre Dame and gave up two hits - both to Shrewsbury's Alecia Zarozney. The No. 7 Colonials (2-5) rallied with one out in the seventh when Zarozney tripled, but Arpin recovered with a strikeout and ended the game by inducing a groundout to short. Erica Armenti gave up two hits and fanned eight for Shrewsbury.
