On Saturday, it was 4-1 and 3-2, with CEU on top. It took extra innings to secure the final win for the Eagles, though.

However, when the Eagles traveled to play Salt Lake Community College, continuing conference play, the team was not able to overcome the offensive power of the Bruins and lost all four games.

Scores for Friday, March 19 were 11-1 and 8-0 in favor of SLCC.

Saturday's games were a little closer, but the Bruins still won both, 9-7 and 9-4.

Saturday the fun starts at noon for the wrap-up double header.
