Impressive Come From Behind Win Propels Falcon's Softball Team Into Day Three

A strong come from behind performance highlights the Falcon’s play at the Under Armour Invitational through day two.

Day one saw the Falcon’s defeat St. Francis yet fall to Quinnipiac University.

The Falcon’s took the plate against St. Francis and drove home only one run, but it was enough. Katie Yoho was able to drive a single home-run in the seventh and was either teams only score, as the Falcon’s pulled through a 1-0 victory.

Game two took place against Quinnipiac University, where the Falcon’s fell 7-4. Paige Berger, Erika Stratton, Hannah Fulk, and Yoho all collected RBIs.

The excitement came on Saturday as the Falcon’s defeated Bethune-Cookman University 8-6. The Falcon’s at one point down 5 runs, rallied in the fifth to score four runs on three hits.

The sixth inning saw more of the team’s dynamic hitting, as the Falcon’s scored four more runs again just on three hits.

Berger, Yoho, and Andrea Arney all recorded RBIs while Rachel Proehl scored on a throwing error.

“We battled hard for the win today,” said Coach Shannon Salsburg. “The entire team contributed to this win. It is huge to know we can battle from behind no matter the score.”

Despite the impressive come-from-behind win, the team was unable to keep the momentum against Florida Gulf Coast, losing 6-1.

The game went back and forth for the majority of the game, until the fifth inning where FGCU scored five runs of off five hits.

Between the two days, the Falcon’s used all their pitchers and will look forward to playing an encore game against St. Francis on Sunday.
