The Eagles attempted to mount a comeback but they could only drum up three runs as the Ospreys won, 5-3.

Game Two

After the Flames scored on a fielder’s choice in the first inning, Liberty locked up an early 1-0 lead.

That lead would go to waste as the Ospreys exploded in the fifth with three straight runs, leading to a 3-1 UNF win, advancing them to the finals against Lipscomb.

Game Three

After a throwing error by the shortstop, Junior Rindy Bryant scored in the second inning for a 1-0 Ospreys lead.

The Bisons plated two on a pair of RBI singles in the bottom of the second to pick up a 3-1 lead.

The lead was stretched to 4-1 after Junior Hannah DeVault hit a solo homer in the bottom of the fourth.

Junior Taylor Engman answered with an RBI single to left to cut the Ospreys deficit to 4-2, Bisons.

Lipscomb went on a tear in the sixth inning with a trio of RBI singles which led to an 8-2 win, crowning themselves as the ASUN Softball Champions.

Worth Noting

Junior Morgan Clausen, Freshman Paige Pfent, and Senior Navia Penrod all won ASUN All-Tournament honors.

The Ospreys finished the season as conference runner-up and look towards getting over that final hump next season.
