    Their opening round opponent, Clinton, had upset the Lady Hounds earlier in the season and Newport was seeking some revenge.
    However, as was the case all season, one inning proved to the be the downfall for the Lady Hounds as Clinton scored six times in the second inning to build a 7-1 lead and held on for a 7-5 victory over Newport.
    Newport which managed only five hits on the afternoon stranded 15 on the basepaths as their season came to an end.
    Mallory Watson, Ashton Madden, Xylina Marshall, Sissy Boyster and Ally Hutchinson had one hit each for Newport with Marshall driving in a run.
