BEAVERS AT A GLANCE

Following the weekend, the Beavers move to 23-7 overall and 0-3 in conference play.
• Charity Sevaaetasi led the Beavers to thrilling 6-5 extra at the Lopes on Monday after delivering the game-winning RBI in the top of the eighth inning, snapping the three-game losing skid. Sevaaetasi went 2-for-3 with three runs batted in, two runs scored and was one of two Beavers who went yard.
• Freshman Eliana Gottlieb led the offense in last weekend's four games, adding four hits with a home run, two RBIs and a run scored. Madison Simon tied Sevaaetasi with two bombs and two RBIs over four-game span.
• Tarni Stepto earned the lone win in the circle for the Orange & Black, picking up her ninth career Beaver victory.
