The Bulldog softball team traveled to Crete, Nebraska on Apr. 7 to play the Doane University Tigers in a doubleheader. Concordia took the win in the first game with a score of 8-4 while the second game was called off in the top of the fifth inning due to lack of light on the fields.
Sophomore Camry Moore pitched all seven innings in the first game, had 10 strikeouts and only two walks. This helped the Bulldogs defensively, making the first three innings scoreless for Doane.
In the bottom of the fourth inning, the Bulldogs put three runs up on the board after sophomore Regan Karel hit a three-run home run, bringing in teammates junior Hhana Haro and freshman Caitlyn McGarvie.
Doane answered back in the fourth inning, scoring their first three runs. The fifth inning saw a lot of action at-bat for the Bulldogs. Concordia scored five more runs leading at 8-3. The Tigers only scored one more run in the fifth to make the final score 8-4. Moore pitched a scoreless sixth and seventh inning to the Tigers.
Game two made it into the fifth inning before the game was called due to lack of lighting on the field. It is to be rescheduled and finished at a later date but for now, the Tigers hold the lead at 3-1 over the Bulldogs.
Freshman Jerzi Rowe pitched for four innings in game two she allowed three runs on six hits and only walked two batters and had one strikeout.
The Bulldogs now sit with an overall record of 18-5. They will host Midland at the Plum Creek Ballfields on Apr. 10 with game times at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
