With Jessi Potter (Fr., 3B, Oneonta, NY) on base with one of her three doubles, Kovach hit a double of her own for the Knights' second run of the game in the top of the fifth to move within one, 3-2. Robert Morris'  Melissa Matteson and Dickenson each hit a three-run home run--Matteson in the fifth and Dickenson in the sixth to pile six runs onto the score and take the 9-2 win.  Dickenson took the game two win with 4.2 innings of relief, striking out two for her 17th win of the season against 11 losses. Jennifer Buehler (Fr., RHP, Oriskany, NY) moved to 2-7 for the Knights, fanning one without a walk in three and one-third innings.
