WINTER HAVEN, FL - The Husson University softball fell in a pair of contests on Wednesday afternoon, falling to #8 Illinois Wesleyan 8-0 in five innings and and 7-5 to St. Scholastica.
Deb Colpitts took the loss as she gave up three earned runs in an inning pitched against Illinois Wesleyan.
In the second game, St. Scholastica held a 7-0 lead after six innings, but Husson battled back and made it interesting by scoring five in the top of the seventh, but fell just short of tying the contest.
Kayla Merrill then singled to left field to score Haley Spiers. Colpitts came up next and nailed a single that scored Gabrielle Bryant and Nicole Andrade. Lyndsay Merrill came up next and grounded out, but advanced Kayla Merrill home to bring Husson within two before Husson notched its third and final out.
Alannah Healy pitched well but took the loss, going 4.1 innings and allowing just one earned run.
The Eagles continue their season tomorrow with games against Wheaton and Coe.
