Both Pokoj and Mackenzie Gugino jacked seperate three-run home runs for the Lady Marauders in the win.

“Overall, it was good,” said Dunkirk coach Michelle Poweski. “It was very nice to see everyone have a hit on the day and play well defensively. We’re peaking at the right time and playing our best softball.”
