Southern Virginia UM-Presque Isle
2 1

For the second consecutive game the Owls would leave the tying and go-ahead runs in scoring position after mounting a late rally. In game two UMPI entered the last inning down 2-0 when Walker led off the inning with a base hit. After a sacrifice moved the pinch runner into scoring position, Williams would reach on an infield base hit. A defensive miscue on a ground ball would score the lone run for the Owls in the game. SVC would get an out on the ensuing play, forcing the runner at third. Packard would step to the plate looking for her fourth hit of the doubleheader, but have the bat taken out of her hands by catcher’s interference, loading the bases with two outs. The Knights game two starter Harmon would escape the game by getting a fly ball to right to end the Owls’ threat.

It would be an Owl defensive miscue that would allow the Knights to get their first scoring threat together in the second inning. After a sacrifice and a stolen base, the run would score on a wild pitch, putting SVC up by one. SVC would pair a couple of hits in the third to add to their lead, as Harmon would single in a run with no one out.

Williams would go two for four in the game for the Owls. Delanie Strout (FR, Greene, ME) would end the game two for three. Packard would strike out six and allow just one earned run in the loss. Harmon would strike out eight for SVC.
