Bonnie Nohrenberg collected two hits with Ava Peterson also getting a hit off Kaili Henning, who struck out nine for St. Edmond.

Delainey Bargfrede had three strikeouts and no walks for the Lynx inside the circle, allowing seven hits in all. The senior and Western Kentucky University signee now has 638 strikeouts in her career.

Adeline Tesdahl stole a base for the Lynx, who played Clarion-Goldfield/Dows on Wednesday and host Humboldt on Friday.
