ST. CHARLES, Mo. - Westminster softball got off to a fast start in the opening game of the SLIAC Tournament, defeating Fontbonne 7-0 in game one.
Alyson Hahn started on the mound for Westminster, pitching all seven innings and earning her 13th win of the season. She allowed just two hits in the shutout, striking out four.
The Blue Jays got on the board early with a two-run home run from Erica Burney, her fourth of the season and her 28th RBI.
Brooke Laidley tallied the seventh run on an RBI single in the fifth.
"The adversity worked in our favor today," said Westminster Head Coach Joe Henderson. "We played loose and had fun, and Hahn was great."
The Blue Jays advance in the tournament to face the winner of Greenville and Webster Saturday at 2 p.m. at ABC Park.
