Botetourt, VA---The Emmanuel College softball team split their first two games at the NCCAA softball championship series Thursday afternoon.
Emmanuel entered the series as the #7 seed and dropped the opening game 5-2 to #2 seeded Cedarville. The loss put the Lions in the loser's bracket where they met the defending national champion North Greenville Crusaders defeating NGU 2-0 in this clash of south regional rivals.
The win over NGU propels the Lions forward where they will meet the loser of the California Baptist VS Judson game at 2 pm on Friday in an elimination game. The Lions must continue to win their way forward and any loss at this point eliminates the Lions in this double-elimination tournament.
NCCAA host institution Bluefield College is offering free live streaming of the games as well as live stats on their www.bluefield.edu website.
