Louisiana College 3, Trinity University 0

May 14, 2005

The Lady Wildcats of Louisiana College mustered up three runs in a competitive game against Trinity University to win game seven of the 2005 NCAA Softball Championships, hosted by the University of Redlands. With four scoreless innings and perfect fielding from both teams, Louisiana counted on solid pitching from Sandi Clark to move onto the championship game. She allowed only three hits and struck out four batters in the complete-game, shutout.

The Lady Wildcats put together a series of singles and sacrifice bunts in the fifth inning to score two runs. They also added another run in the sixth, again from smart hitting and aggressive base-running.

Trinity struggled on offense, connecting on only three hits in the game. Coupled with solid fielding and pitching from the Lady Wildcats, Trinity suffered from a shutout.

Trinity University wraps up the 2005 season with a 28-22 overall record. Louisiana College faces the Chapman University in the championship game at 12 noon on Sunday. The Lady Wildcats must defeat the Panthers twice to advance to the next round in Raleigh, NC.
