LANGSTON, Okla. — It took McPherson College’s softball team a game to find its sea legs.

After losing 11-3 to Langston University in Game 1 on Monday, the Bulldogs rebounded strong with an 8-5 victory.

Mac was down 4-0 in its win, but came storming back, including four runs in the fourth and two in the fifth.

The top of the order feasted, as Emily Davis was 3 for 5 with three runs scored, Shelby Maycumber was 2 for 5 and Katie Holmes was 3 for 3. Simone Donaldson also had two hits. Sydney Lang was the winning pitcher.

The Bulldogs struggled getting off the bus in Game 1, giving up six runs in the first inning and were down 10-2 after four. They also booted the ball five times.

The Bulldogs picked up seven hits, two by Donaldson.

The Bulldogs, now 5-21, open KCAC play on Wednesday with a road trip to Saint Mary.
