SHAW LADY BEARS EDGE BOWIE STATE LADY BULLDOGS 5-4


FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. - In the final competition of the day, Shaw scored an unearned run in the top of the first, but their lead was short lived as Bowie State responded with four runs of their own in the bottom of the fourth, including a bases-clearing triple by freshman Erica Atkins, to give the Lady Bulldogs a 4-1 lead.
Lady Bulldogs’ sophomore Cassandra Clayborne led off the BSU first with a bunt single then stole second. Junior Aiyana McNair followed with a walk. Clayborne stole third and scored on a throwing error by the Lady Bears’ catcher. Senior Megan Alexander singled up the middle, scoring McNair from second to give Bowie State a 2-0 lead.

Shaw tied the game in the top of the third when Lafrades, Manley and Anderson each reached base - with both Manley and Anderson coming home on an error by the BSU catcher.

With pitcher Sheniqua Fahie shutting down the Lady Bulldogs after the first inning, Shaw needed only one more run to earn the victory.  They got it in the top of the fourth when Renee Holmes doubled to left center, advanced to third on a wild pitch and then scored when the BSU catcher dropped a third strike, allowing the runners to advance.

Both teams were shut down the rest of the way, giving Shaw the 5-4 win.  With the win, Shaw improves to 9-17 on the season, and evens their conference mark at 4-4.
