The two teams are battling for an eighth place finish in the regular season.

The Softball Lady Lions suffered a tough defeat, 9-8, to last place Huston-Tillotson on Friday night in Austin. SAGU must win twice today along with a win over second place Northwood University on Tuesday to qualify for a berth in the NCCAA Central Regional.
Senior catcher Heather Wyatt (Lake Jackson, Tx / Brazoswood HS) went 3-for-4 that included an inside-the-park home run to tie the score at 8-8. The host Rams then won the game with a run in the bottom of the seventh inning. The nine runs was a season high for Tillotson.
