|Thomas College||Endicott College|
BEVERLY, Mass. – The Thomas College softball team allowed two 6-5 walk-off victories to Endicott College in a non-conference doubleheader on Tuesday afternoon.
An early 2-0 lead for Endicott after one inning of play quickly turned into a 3-2 deficit in the top of the second before the Gulls regained the lead with a pair of runs in the bottom of the frame to take a 4-3 lead and extended that to 5-3 with another run in the third.
Thomas then knotted the game at five apiece in the fourth on sophomore shortstop Lexi Colpack’s (Franklin, N.H.) two-run jack to left field.
A fifth-sixth-seventh inning stalemate sent the game to extras until junior shortstop Kayla Sheldon (Burlington, Mass.) drove in the game-winning run in the bottom of the eighth with her RBI single to right field to plate sophomore left fielder KK Palmerino.
Sophomore reliever Laura Somerville picked up her team-leading seventh win of the season (7-4) as she took over for Gulls’ freshman starter Rylie Strong to begin the sixth inning.
