SCSU wins opener of College World Series

The SCSU softball team knocked off St. Joseph (Ind.) 3-2 in the first game of the DII College World Series on Wednesday afternoon in Louisville, Ky.

Kate Hoffman

Southern took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning thanks to a leadoff homer from Brittany Bucko and an RBI single by Kate Hoffman.
St. Joe's tied the game at 2-2 in the sixth inning on a walk and a couple of SCSU errors. The tying run seemed to be a bit controversial when a Puma runner appeared to tagged out at the plate but the umpire ruled that Stacy Pouliot missed the tag. Nevertheless, Shawna Mallory singled to score Julie Muscarella with the go-ahead run in the bottom of the sixth inning to give the Owls the win.
SCSU will play the winner of Central Florida and Flagler Thursday at 12:30 p.m
