SCAC Softball Tournament - Southwestern vs. DePauw

Southwestern and DePauw squared off for the right to advance to the finals as the two teams met for the second time this tournament after Millsaps upset DePauw earlier in the day. The Pirates maintained constant pressure on the Tigers, scoring one run in the third, fourth and fifth innings, and took a 3-0 lead through five and a half innings.

DePauw would not be shutout and came roaring back in the sixth, scoring two runs and pulling within one, 3-2. SU was unable to add insurance runs to their lead and had to play sensational defense in the final inning just as the Tigers were mounting a comeback.

Sensational defense is exactly what the Pirates gave, starting with Lyndsy Maus on the mound. After five foul balls Maus got Hallett to ground out to Gola for the first out and then quickly got Anton to do the same. After one last foul ball by Buchanan Maus got the final batter to pop up to the right side infield, ending the game and thrusting Southwestern into the Championship game.

After the game Russell Kramer caught up with Southwestern head coach Angela Froboese and sophomore pitcher Lyndsy Maus.
