Olivet Nazarene's late rally trips Lady Owls

May 20th, 2011 in News

The William Woods University Lady Owls softball team couldn't resist Olivet Nazarene (Ill.) University's late charge.

No. 17 Olivet Nazarene overcame a 3-1 deficit by rallying for five runs in the top of the sixth inning and adding three more in the seventh to topple William Woods 9-4 in the first game of pool play at the NAIA national championships Thursday.

The Lady Tigers' comeback in the sixth was highlighted by junior shortstop Jordan Reynolds' two-run double and freshman left fielder Lauren Johnson's two-run single. Reynolds raced home with the other run in the inning on a wild pitch by Lady Owls freshman starter MacKenzie Bowden.
