She was bunted over to third by Kaitlin Ward and, after two intentional walks to load the bases, was forced out at home on a fielder's choice. But Rowan couldn't handle a grounder by Natalie Spadafora and pinch-runner Kelly Grills of Stonington scored the game winner. Jessie Richardson (two RBI) and Kelsey Gray had two hits each for Coast Guard.
