McPherson College’s softball team completed the KCAC portion of its schedule here Tuesday on Senior Day with a split against Tabor, which is ahead of it in the standings.
Tabor was a 5-1 winner in the first game, scoring two runs in the third inning and three in the fifth.
Five different Bulldogs had one hit each, with Mariah Wedel clubbing a triple and Emily Davis crashing a double. Kaila Atkinson took the loss.
The Bulldogs earned the split with one of their better games of the season, a 7-2 triumph that was keyed by a four-run fourth inning.
It was a huge game for Amanda Darrow, who homered and singled, while scoring three runs. Cassandra Moreno and Makenzie Frank both drove in two runs.
Jenna Kaiser pitched 5 1/3 effective innings, with Ciara Archer earning the save. Archer had been out for two weeks with illness before returning to give the Bulldogs a boost.
Mac finished the KCAC portion of its schedule with a 7-11 record, which earned it the No. 7 seed in the postseason tournament. It still has some business to take care of today, hosting crosstown rival Central Christian College at 5 p.m. at Wall Park. The Bulldogs are 14-21 overall.
