Concordia softball stays alive in NAC Tourney


Trailing 1-0 entering the bottom of the third, Concordia went to work offensively to stay alive in the NAC tournament Friday evening.

Jannelle Schroder singled and eventually scored on a sac fly to tie the game after 3 innings.

The Falcons used Dominican wildness to pull ahead 3-1 after four innings, and then added 3 more runs in their final two at bats to pull away from the Stars.

Danielle Burke (14-3) got the win, outdueling Jenny Mahoney (12-6).

The Falcons, one of three teams remaining in the double elimination tourney, play the loser of the Benedictine- Aurora game at 11:00am Saturday. BU and CUW each have one loss while top seeded Aurora has no tourney losses.

Sarah Cochran had 3 of Concordia's 9 hits as CUW improved to 32-9 with their second win after a tourney-opening defeat.
