GREENSBORO, N.C. – The UNC Greensboro (UNCG) softball team earned its third series sweep after a 3-2 victory on Sunday against The Southern Conference (SoCon) foe Mercer at the UNCG Softball Stadium.

Maxwell tallied her second hit of the game in the lead off spot and advanced on a passed ball. Jessie Shipley moved her over on a sacrifice bunt and on Grace Loftin’s sacrifice fly to center field, Maxwell scored on an obstruction call at the plate.

With one out, Brown hammered a 3-2 count out of the park for a solo home run clearing the center field wall. With two outs, White walked and Dalehite doubled to center field to put runners in scoring position. Maxwell then walked to load the bases and on a fielding error, White scored.

With two outs and a runner on first in the top of the sixth, Kassidy Moore homered to left field to cut the deficit to one, 3-2.
