Clinton, Miss.-Mississippi College broke open a close game one to pick up a 9-1 win and then finished the day with a 9-0 game two victory over the Lady Eagles in conference play Friday.

In game one, Ozarks (9-11, 2-6 ASC) trailed only 2-1 late in the game, but Mississippi College (5-17, 3-5 ASC) exploded for seven runs in the bottom of the sixth to earn a 9-1 victory. A sacrifice RBI from Amber Rollins cut the deficit to 2-1 in the sixth, however, the Lady Choctaws pounded out six hits in the bottom half of the frame to post a run-rule win.

Rollins (7-4) took the loss. Miah Williams went 2-for-3 at the plate.

Mississippi College carried that momentum into the second game as it scored three runs in the first and four runs in the second to take a commanding 7-0 advantage. The Lady Eagles never really got their offense going, recording only three hits in the game.

Whitney Price (1-6) took the loss.

Ozarks will finish its series against Mississippi College Saturday in a double-header.
