Rain forces game to end in tie

FOR RELEASE
2008-03-27
 They were hoping to get in one complete game before the rains came, but the Foresters and Madonna University were forced to call it quits the game after six innings and decided to leave it a tie with the score standing at 1-1.

HU got its lone run in the third when Brittney Bateman blooped in a two-out single to shallow right to score Alicia Willour. The Crusaders were able to even the score in the top of the sixth without getting a hit. Madonna picked up three walks in the inning and scored the tying run on a wild pitch. The Foresters stranded runners on first and third in the bottom of the sixth and then the rains came.

Brittany Gower led HU at the plate with two hits including a double and Lauren Ward had a two-hitter going through six innings before the game ended prematurely.
