What a ride! Season Finale for softball

May 8, 2009 NCAA Regional Tournament (Season Finale)

Alma 3 Concordia 1

Bloomington, IL

The script was eerily similar to the first time these teams had met a day earlier. CUW outhit Alma, MI 9-7 and had the better of opportunities, but the Michigan school scored a pair of unearned runs in the 4th, and that turned out to be enough to end the extended Falcon season at 25-23.

Erin Meier, Chelsie Strosina, and Sarah Cochran each had two hits for Concordia, but the 'big hit' with runners in scoring position never came as the Falcons left a dozen teammates on base. Alma (29-11) moved on to Saturday competition.
