The Presentation College Softball team faced off against Northwestern College Friday night in the dome in what turned out to be quite a nail biter. It took not one, but two extra innings for this one to be decided with the Red Raiders taking it with a score of 7-6.
The Red Raiders had a strong showing from several players especially from Madison Beaver. Beaver hit a double in the top of the second inning sending two runners home giving them a 3-1 lead, and then adding a tally of her own later in the game.
Presentation had a star of their own with Courtney Mendoza.
Mendoza started the game off with a triple and then proceeded to score the first run of the game for the saints by capitalizing on a wild pitch tying the game at one. Mendoza later made it to home base two more times for a total of three runs.
“It can only go up from here,” head softball coach Mari Jordan said after the game. “We played a strong game, and our pitcher Darrian Gibson started her first game as a collegiate pitcher and she had a strong showing throughout the game”.
Next the Saints will travel to Tucson Arizona to play Siena Heights University. That game will start at 10 pm.
