Sophomore Christine Bombardiere pitched a six-hitter, striking out three while moving her record to 2-4, as CN pounded out 20 hits -- six extra base hits among them.
Columbus North snapped a 4-4 tie with a four-run fourth inning, then broke the game open with three additional runs in the fifth and sixth.

Harney provided a leadoff home run in the sixth. Junior Sheana Wasilewski then singled, Brooks was hit by a pitch and Prall reached on a fielder's choice. Stowers and Lucas followed with singles to complete the flurry.
Columbus North took a 3-0 lead in the first inning when Brooks singles, Prall doubled, Bombardiere walked, Lucas singled and Hercamp singled. Seymour made it 3-2 in the bottom of the inning when senior Devon Joray singled home two runs.
