Mount Abe doubled up host Colchester, 16-8, on Saturday by breaking open a close game in the late innings. The Eagles scored three runs in each of the fifth, sixth and seventh innings to pull away from the 1-2 Lakers.
Sarah Smith sparked the Eagle attack by driving in three runs with three hits.
The Eagles are scheduled to play their home opener at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday vs. Burlington.
