Turning Two! Patriots Bounce Back To Win Two Straight

At UT Tyler Ballpark, the Patriot softball team had no margin for error.

After dropping the first game of the NCAA Division III Regional Tournament, the Patriots faced a must win early Friday morning against Redlands.

Redlands jumped out to an early lead but the Patriots were able to rally for a 5-3 win.

By winning the first game, the Patriots set up their second game of the day against defending champion Linfield.

Facing elimination, the Patriots put up a never-ending fight. After a nine-inning marathon, the Patriots were the victors winning 6-4 and eliminating last year's champs from the tournament.

UT Tyler will play La Verne Saturday at noon at UT Tyler Ballpark.
