SCSU falls to Central Oklahoma, plays elimination game Friday

The SCSU softball team has its backs against the wall as it continues play in the Division II College World Series.
On Thursday, three errors proved costly for the Owls in a 6-4 loss to Central Oklahoma on Thursday.

“We missed routine plays,” said SCSU coach Lisa Barbaro. “Typically, we’ve been a very strong defensive team.”

SCSU (43-12) will face top-ranked Valdosta State in an elimination game today at 10 a.m.

SCSU rallied from a 4-0 deficit to tie the game in the bottom of the sixth inning. That prompted coach Lisa Barbaro to go back to starting pitcher Jayme Larson, who sat out the fifth inning so backup Kelsey Cockrill could get some work.
But with the game tied Barbaro went back to her ace but the SCSU gloves fell apart.
SCSU can't lose another game or the season will be over.
Check out for live video and stats from today's game.
