PRINCESS ANNE, Md. – After splitting Saturday’s doubleheader, Coach Sam Douglas and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore Softball team edged out in-state rival Coppin State (CSU), 1-0, at Hawk Field.

With the victory, Eastern Shore (8-13, 2-3 MEAC) won the season series against CSU for the first time since 2009.

Junior Adrienne Guerra (Monrovia, Calif.) outdueled Coppin State’s Madison Didion. The California product recorded her third complete-game shutout of the season, tossing seven innings with seven strikeouts.

Scoreless after four innings of play, sophomore Daeshia Jones (Teaneck, N.J) reached base on an error by CSU’S Hatika James. Next at-bat, Anderson drilled a hard shot to short. With runners on first and second, Coach Douglas signaled double steal; thus, putting runners in scoring position.

With one away, Guerra delivered the go-ahead sac fly to centerfield and gave Eastern Shore the lead, 1-0.

In their last at-bat, CSU left the tying run on second as Guerra did not allow the Eagles to reach home; thus, propelling The Shore to victory.

Other notable Hawk performances included senior Allison Anderson (Colorado Springs, Colo.) registering her seventh multi-hit game of the season, going 2-of-3 with a stolen base.

Coppin State (3-20, 1-2 MEAC) picked up six hits; however, left nine runners on base.  Sophomore Megan Narvaez led the Eagles, going 3-of-4 with a double. Didion received the loss; however, tossed a solid game for CSU. The Washington native went six innings and allowed an unearned run in a losing effort.

On April 1-2, Maryland Eastern Shore goes to Norfolk, Va. where they will meet the Norfolk State Spartans in league play.

The three-game series starts with a Saturday (April 1) doubleheader at 1p.m., followed by Sunday’s (April 2) seven-inning contest at noon.
