Siliga, Laliberte Team Up to Blank Bowling Green
The win snaps a three-game losing streak for Georgia Southern (17-13) while Bowling Green loses its ninth straight to open the season.
Siliga started her work early, singling home sophomores Lindsey Hopkins (McDonough, Ga.) and Nina Iduate (Norcross, Ga.) in the first inning. She added a second hit in the third with another single and scored on junior Amanda Hall’s (Haddock, Ga.) three-run homer.
Siliga added her third RBI on the afternoon in the fifth by driving in Iduate on another single and made it a perfect afternoon in the seventh on her fourth one-base hit.
Laliberte allowed just four hits and tied her career high with 14 strikeouts. The 14 Ks are tied for third-most in school history. Only one baserunner advanced past second base.
Georgia Southern returns to action Friday when it competes in the Speedline Invitational hosted by South Florida.
