Megan Carden chipped in with 9 points and 7 boards and Sophia Dutra added 8 points and 6 rebounds.

Turn the table on Sunday, the Hawks jumped out to a 22-8 first quarter lead and were never really threatened after that. Medovich was good for 16 points, 12 of those points coming by way of the three ball.
