WAYNE, Pa. - Emma Hagel and Anna Morgan combined for 14 RBI and the rest of the team chipped in as well as the Mustangs swept their season-ending doubleheader against the Trojans of Valley Forge Military College on Wednesday afternoon.

Montgomery won the opener, 23-2, and continued its offensive outburst in Game #2 with a 22-1 triumph. The run totals were the most this season for the Mustangs.

The bats went to work early and often in both games as all 11 Mustangs players finished the day with at least one hit and one RBI, and the team recorded team highs in hits.

The Mustangs scored 13 runs in the first inning of the opener, and put up 20 runs by the fourth inning of the second game.

In the opener, the Mustangs used a season-high 27-hit attack, including six extra-base hits -- all doubles. Hagel went for 5 for 6 with 5 RBI and 3 runs scored. Rachel DiBenedetto went for 4 for 6 with 3 RBI and 5 runs scored. Pitcher Allegra Schnitzel and Linda Sobeck also drove in three runs for the Mustangs.

Alison Henning went for 4 for 6 with 2 RBI and 3 runs scored. Leadoff hitter Julie Primavera scored 4 runs and knocked in a pair while going 3 for 6. DiBenedetto and Primavera, both second-year players, each doubled twice in the game. Henning and Hiba Elrahjaoui also doubled for the Mustangs. DiBenedetto and Primavera each had 3 steals in the opener.

The second game offered more of the same. This time, Montgomery pounded out 19 hits. Primavera had four of those in five at-bats. She knocked in a pair of runs and scored three. Morgan accounted for 5 RBI, while Hagel and Henning chipped in 3 RBI apiece.

Primavera added 3 more steals and DiBenedetto, Henning and Sobeck stole 2 bases apiece.

Schnitzel, one of three second-year players, closed out her Mustangs' career on a high note in picking up the victories, the fourth and fifth for the Mustangs in 2016. Schnitzel struck out 12 and walked 11 on the day.

The Mustangs finished the 2016 season with a mark of 5-25.
