The East Central Community College Lady Warriors were back on the Softball Complex in Decatur today hosting the Lansing Michigan Community College Lady Stars in a softball doubleheader. The Lady Warriors were enjoying a 3-0 shutout of the Lady Stars until the top of the final inning of play when the Lady Stars exploded for 7 runs to gain the lead by 4 runs going into the bottom of the seventh but the Lady Warriors maintained their composure and put on a run scoring frenzy of their own, scoring 6 runs to win game one 9-7.
In game two, it was the Lady Stars putting the first run on the scoreboard in the top of the first inning but the Lady Warriors had a big bottom of the second scoring 6 runs to take a 5 run lead. After leading 8-1 going into the top of the fifth inning, the Lady Stars scored 3 runs to cut into EC’s lead in the top of the fifth but the Lady Warriors got two runs back in the bottom of the inning leading 11-4. Top of the sixth, Lansing added two runs but EC scored 3 in the bottom of the sixth – ending the game on a “runs rule” with a 14-6 victory. With today’s sweep, the Lady Warriors improve to 12-4 on the season.
