KANSAS CITY - Central Methodist swept a Heart of America Athletic Conference softball doubleheader against Avila (Mo.) on Saturday at the Zarda Multisport Complex. The Eagles won the first game 9-0 in six innings before picking up a 4-0 decision in the second contest.

The Eagles built a 2-0 lead in game one with one run in each of the second and third innings before breaking the contest open in the fourth. Mary Kate Townley and Michele Rupard plated runs on back-to-back RBI singles to make the score 4-0. A Jacqui Cappuccilli sacrifice fly was followed by a Melanie Wilmsmeyer RBI double to right, scoring Ashley Lutz to stretch the Green and Black's advantage to six runs.

Central Methodist ended game one early with two runs in the top of the sixth. Rupard scored on an Avila fielding error, and Lauren Geringer scored on Shelby Pohlman's RBI fielder's choice.

Erika Reinagel was 3-for-4 with an RBI and run scored to spark Central Methodist's offensive attack in game one. Townley and Rupard each had two hits. Wilmsmeyer and Megan Robbins each had two RBI.

Bri Ford (9-3) picked up her eighth straight win in the circle with a complete game. She pitched a six-hit shutout to go along with five strikeouts.

Pitcher Jennifer Hammonds took the loss after giving up nine runs, six earned, on 10 hits in six innings.

A Rupard RBI double to left is all the offense Central Methodist pitcher Aubrey Utley would need in the second affair. Townley scored from first base on the play in the top of the fourth inning.

The Eagles added three insurance runs in the fifth, starting with Bri Boatwright's two-run double to left. Boatwright later scored on a Townley sacrifice fly.

Pohlman was 2-for-3 at the plate in the second contest. Boatwright had two RBI.

Utley (11-4) went the distance in a three-hit shutout. She had five strikeouts.

Hammonds (1-13) dropped her 11th straight decision after a defeat in game two, allowing four runs, three earned, on five hits in seven innings.

Central Methodist hosts Baker (Kan.) in a doubleheader on Tuesday. First pitch is set for 4 p.m. CT.
