Lakewood, NJ - The Nyack College softball team continued to surprise as the Warriors stayed alive on day one of the CACC Spring Championship hosted by the Georgian Court University.
In game one the 7th seeded Warriors squared off with the second seed Wilmington University Wildcats. The Warriors struggled at the plate against the Wildcats and consequently ended up on the losing side of things with a final score of 0-8.
The Warriors faced off with the Chestnut Hill College Griffins in a rematch of their last regular season game a week ago. In a wild game the Warriors looked like the sure winner of the contest leading 12-5 in the bottom of the 7th inning. However, the Griffins managed to come back and tie the game with 7-runs scored to force extra innings. In the top of the 8th the Warriors would go ahead once again when Katie Lupinacci scored on a wild pitch all the way from second base to secure the win for Nyack.
Erin O'Brien's third hit of the game was also her 100th career hit establishing her position as one of the better hitters in the CACC.
Up next: The Warriors will face off with the Post University Eagles in another elimination game tomorrow.
