Softball splits pair of games in Florida
CLERMONT, Fla. - In what was their fourth day of competition at the NTC Spring Games, the Concordia University Wisconsin softball team split a pair of games on Wednesday afternoon, defeating Kean University (N.J.) 5-2 before losing to Western New England University (Mass.) 7-5.
Against Kean, CUW (4-8) won their second game since arriving in Florida behind a dominant performance from sophomore pitcher Jamie Schuh (Freedom, Wis.), who threw a complete game to go along with four strikeouts.
At the plate, the Falcons were led by freshman Jessica Liszka (Lindenhurst, Ill.), who went 2-for-4 with two runs scored.
In the day's second game against Western New England, the Falcons found themselves in a 5-0 hole after three innings, but rallied to tie the score at 5-5 heading into the seventh and final inning of play.
That final inning would prove to be decisive, however, as the Golden Bears scored twice in the top half of the seventh before holding CUW scoreless in the bottom half.
Senior Sarah Cochran (Bloomington, Ill.) led the Falcons at the plate by going 3-for-4 with three RBI, while Liszka went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored.
CUW will have its fifth and final day of competition in the Sunshine State on Thursday, when they'll face Tufts University (Mass.) at 5 p.m. before taking on Colby College (Maine) at 7 p.m.
