Softball gets series win over Weber
The Bears’ softball team earned its first Big Sky Conference series win over the weekend against Weber State in Greeley.
Friday afternoon’s double header brought both joy and despair for Northern Colorado.
In game one, a Lauren Paige RBI single gave the Bears a 1-0 lead in the first inning. The Bears held the lead through five innings.
The top of the sixth put Weber State on top 2-1 after a fielder’s choice RBI and an RBI single. The Wildcats added another run the lead in the seventh after an RBI double.
Northern Colorado wasn’t going to go down easy though. Jordan Wiatrak knocked a two-run homer out of the park to tie the game at three in the bottom of the seventh and send the game into extra innings.
Extra innings didn’t last long because Kelli Kleis hit an RBI double to centerfield to give the Bears the 4-3 victory.
After taking game one into extra innings, Weber State came out strong in game two and took UNC down 8-0 in just five innings.
Game three was back in the Bears favor. Paige knocked a three-run homer out of the park in the bottom of the first to give UNC the 3-0 lead. An Emily Holtz RBI single extended the Bears lead to 4-0.
Weber State wasn’t going to go quietly and a two-run home run put the Wildcats on the board 4-2 in the fourth inning. Unfortunately for Weber State, the UNC defense wasn’t going to let Weber State get away with any more runs.
A Rachel Johnson home run and an RBI double by Erica Dick sealed the Bears 6-2 victory in game three and the series win over Weber State.
With the wins, Northern Colorado’s record advances to 16-24 overall and 4-5 in the Big Sky. Next up, the Bears head to Fort Collins for a game against the Colorado State Rams Tuesday at 4 p.m. Then the Bears hit the road again for a Big Sky matchup against Montana beginning April 14th.
