CLERMONT, Fla. -- The Lawrence University softball team rode a pair of big innings and a strong pitching performance to a 7-2 victory over Maine-Farmington on Friday at the National Training Center.

The victory marked the final game of Lawrence's 12-game spring break trip to Florida.

The Vikings scored four times in the second and three times in the fifth and got a complete game from pitcher Emilia Jackson. Jackson allowed four hits, struck out six and did not walk a batter to collect the victory.

Madeline MacLean went 2-for-4, and Lexi Angemi and Liz Jonjak both drove in a pair of runs for Lawrence (2-10).

The Vikings led 1-0 in the second when Jonjak smacked a two-run double as Angemi and Maria Reiter scored. Amanda Karnatz followed with a run-scoring single to get Jonjak to the plate, and the Vikings led 4-0.

The Beavers got a run in the bottom of the second, but the Vikings stretched the lead with three runs in the fifth. Reiter's bases-loaded ground ball scored a run, and Angemi followed with a run-scoring single to give Lawrence a 6-1 lead. Jackson helped her own cause with an RBI single to push the lead to 7-1.

Farmington added a run in the bottom of the sixth, but Jackson retired the final four hitters to close out the victory. Kailyn Hill went the distance and took the loss for Farmington (2-5).
