Sarah DeCeuninck posted Dryden's top plate credentials, collecting two singles, a double and a home run. Kelley Finn followed, generating two singles. The remaining Cardinal basehits went to Natalie Maynard (a double) along with Mandi Jones, Cortney Lowney, Amy Kaltz and Raylin Gregg (a single each).
Maynard was Dryden's pitcher of record. She threw a three-hitter, struck out 11 and issued one walk en route.
Dryden then raised their tournament mark to 2-0, thanks to an 11-6 triumph against Peck.
There Dryden struck for a four-run second inning; a two-run third; a four-run fourth and a one-run sixth to prevail.
Peck managed a one-run first inning; a one-run third; a one-run sixth; and a three-run seventh.
DeCeuninck again created her share of headaches for the opposing pitching staff. This time she was credited with two singles, a double and a triple. Lowney (two singles and a double), Lynsey Marchwinski (three singles), Jackie Warner (two singles) along with Jones and Finn (a single apiece) supported her plate performance.
Maynard was the winning Dryden pitcher. She tossed a four-hitter, including seven strikeouts and two walks.
Those aformentioned outcomes landed Dryden a championship game appearance where Memphis provided their opposition.
However, their battle for the first-place trophy would last just a few outs. That is because adverse weather conditions arrived with a vengeance, bringing an abrupt halt to the tournament.
It is uncertain when, or if, the contest will be rescheduled, according to Dryden Coach Gary Maynard.
