Lions Softball Splits With Bearcats of Northwest Missouri

Updated:

JOPLIN - The Missouri Southern Lions (14-14, 1-3 MIAA) picked up their first conference victory on the season defeating then league leading Northwest Missouri State University 5-0 in game one before falling 8-5 in the night cap on Saturday at Lea Kungle Field in Joplin.

Game One

Junior Nicole Reed (10-4) recorded the win, along with her 100th strike out on the season, against the Bearcats.  Reed finished the game with 102 stirke outs this season and is just one away from breaking into the top 10 in the single season record at Missouri Southern.  Reed also allowed only three Northwest Missouri hits and walked none.

Junior Brianna Fulkerson went 3-for-4 at the plate with two RBIs, while junior Lydia Niemegeers went 2-for-3 and scored two of the five Lions' runs.  Junior pinch runner Kiley Siebenaler and freshman Madison Reed scored the other three runs.  Madison finished game one with a 2-for-3 plate performance and two stolen bases.

Game Two

In the nightcap senior Tiffany Bennett (3-7) suffered the loss as the Bearcats struck for eight runs after being shut out earlier.  Sophomore Kayce Moore pitched 1 2/3 innings in relief of Bennett allowing just one hit.

Madison Reed was the star of the game at the dish for the Lions in game two as she finished 3-for-5 at the plate with a RBI.  Fulkerson hit .500 going 2-for-4 and scoring two runs, while junior Alysha Poteat also finished 2-for-4 at the plate and scored two runs.  Siebenaler scored the other lone Southern run in the night cap.

The Lions will be back in action on Tuesday April 5 as they host Pittsburg State University in a single game starting at 6pm.  This game will be Southern's Strike Out Cancer game.  The Lions will then travel to Missouri S&T on Wednesday for a non-conference double header and finish the week back at home as they host the Tigers of Fort Hays State and the Washburn Lady Blues in MIAA double header tilts.  Friday's games will start at 4pm while Saturday will begin at 2pm.
