TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – A pair of costly of errors by the North Carolina A&T softball team caused it to drop its first MEAC game of the season, a 2-1 decision to Florida A&M on Sunday afternoon at the Lady Rattler Softball Field.

The Aggies (13-16, 5-1 MEAC) scored their only run in third inning when junior Zebresha Blakeney reached on a single and stole second to put A&T in scoring position. A wild pitch by Amber Fullwood moved Blakeney to third and senior Dominique Smith’s RBI single gave A&T a 1-0 lead.

In the fourth, however, the Rattlers (14-21, 3-3) took advantage of a few miscues by the Aggies’ defense to take the 2-1 edge. Miesha McBride started the inning with a single and Amanda Weaver reached on an error by Blakeney. Brittany Speer who pinch ran for McBride advanced to third on the error. Weaver stole second but FAMU was unable to see its offense produce on the next two at-bats as the Aggies’ defense recorded two straight outs.

Raven Mosely did keep the inning going by reaching on an error by freshman Charity Douglas which scored Speer and tied the game at 1. Alyssa Weaver’s RBI single on the next at-bat scored the game-winning run.

Senior Haley Snyder was for 2-for-3 for the Aggies. Senior Shelby Snyder (2-7) took the loss but finished with a season-high four strikeouts. Fullwood (5-7) earned the win and gave up six hits and struck out one batter.

A&T will return back to action on Wednesday, April 9 for a non-conference game against Elon beginning at 4:30 p.m at the Lady Aggie Softball Complex.
