Tigers Fall in Championship
Errors derailed the Tigers' run through the GPAC Tournament as Doane fell 11-3 to Morningside College. Doane committed seven errors that led to eight unearned runs in the ball game.
The Tigers committed three errors in the first inning as Morningside scored four runs. Doane closed the gap in the top of the third inning when Stephanie Mosley hit a three-run home run to pull the Tigers within one run of the Mustangs. However, Morningside answered with a three-run home run of their own in the bottom of the inning to take their four run lead back.
Morningside closed out the game in the fifth with four runs to invoke the eight-run rule.
Hannah Kroese and Amy Hamik joined Mosley with two hits each in the game.
The Tigers will await a bid to the NAIA Region III Tournament. The tournament begins on May 7 in Sioux City, Iowa, at 12:00 PM.
