(Clermont, Fla.) The Golden Eagles found it a little harder to score runs today in Florida.

Warmelink got a single to lead off the sixth inning and was replaced on the bases by Ashley Niedermayer who ended up scoring on a Jenna Weightman single to complete the scoring. Cornerstone improved to 6-1 and Warmelink improved to 3-1 on the season.
