Trotter Harlan reached base five times and mashed a two-run home run and Ty Good and William Privette combined for 11 strikeouts to lead the College of Charleston to a 7-3 win over CAA preseason favorite Northeastern to open conference play on Friday evening at Patriots Point.

The Cougars struck first with an RBI fielder’s choice by Preston Hall in the first.
Northeastern answered with one in the second to even the tally at 1-1. Charleston regained the lead with two in the third on back-to-back two-out errors by the Huskies.

Harlan would extend the advantage to 6-1 putting an exclamation point on a three-run frame with a mammoth two-run bomb to left. After Northeastern plated two in the seventh to cut the margin to 6-3, Charleston capped the scoring on a failed pickoff attempt in the eighth.

The Cougars and Huskies will meet in game two of the weekend series on Saturday afternoon. First pitch is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. at Patriots Point.
