Riley Morris drove in all three runs for Coker in the opener. She put the Cobras on top with a two-run home run in the second. She brought home the final run when Tayler Barcomb beat a throw home on a fielder’s choice.
Christina Carver held Catawba to three hits over her six innings to improve to 6-3. She walked three and struck out three. Nikki Linthicum threw the seventh to pick up her second save as she walked one. Brooke Walser (Thomasville, N.C./E. Davidson) fell to 6-11.

Johnston) singled home a run to tie the game at 1-1 in the first then Kristen Stinnard (Concord, N.C/Cox Mill) and Grace Holland (Thomasville, N.C./Ledford) singled home runs in the second for a 3-1 edge.
Coker rallied to tie the game on RBI singles by Lilli Otten in the fourth and Morris in the fifth. Kelsi Bachmann provided the winning runs with her two-run double in the sixth. Morris finished with three hits
Augusta Jackson moved into the circle for Coker in the fourth and allowed just one Catawba baserunner, a two-out single by Turner in the seventh. She fanned three in improving to 5-1.
Stinnard, Holland and Turner all had two hits for Catawba in game two.
Catawba will host Lincoln Memorial on Saturday for a 1 pm doubleheader.
