HENDERSON, Tenn. - Kamara Trice hit a key two-run home run to help the Freed-Hardeman Lady Lions get a split with Martin Methodist (Tenn.) College on Saturday.

The RedHawks (28-16, 12-8) won game one, 7-1, before FHU took the second game, 6-4.

Trice's home run, the fourth of the year for the freshman, came in the fifth inning and gave Freed-Hardeman (19-18, 12-12) a 6-2 lead.

MMC threatened in the top of the seventh, taking advantage of two Lady Lion errors to score twice, but Sarah Elizabeth Cousar (13-5) worked out of the jam.

In game one, Martin Methodist scored four runs in the top of the first inning and cruised as FHU struggled to move runners against RedHawk starter Chrissy Darnell.  Darnell allowed five hits and one walk over seven innings.

Savannah Cole (0-4) took the loss, allowing five runs in five innings pitched.

FHU returns to action on Tuesday, hosting No. 11 Union (Tenn.) University at 5:00 PM.
