SAVANNAH, Ga. – The North Carolina A&T softball team took an early lead in the first game of a MEAC doubleheader against Savannah State Saturday but held on for a 7-4 win at Tiger Softball Stadium.

A&T came up short 10-0 in Game 2.

The Aggies (14-18, 6-2) wasted no time in the second inning as senior Sabrina Edmonds led off the inning with her sixth home run of the season. Freshman Dasia Moore who reached on a walk gave A&T the 2-0 edge after scoring on a wild pitch. In the third inning, it was senior Jax Kaye Woodard’s turn to get in on the home run action as she belted a three-run shot over center field to stretch A&T’s lead to 5-0.

After the Aggies loaded the bases in the fifth inning, senior Tranea Jones hit an RBI single to drive in a run. With the bases still loaded, A&T took the 7-0 advantage when Moore scored on a fielder’s choice.

Savannah State (20-17, 4-4) finally got on the board in the bottom of the inning and cut the Aggies’ lead to 7-1 with an RBI sacrifice fly from Amanda Hallman. In the sixth, the Tigers received solo homers from Amber Hallman and Megan Uhrman, slicing the score to 7-3. Alexis Singleton drove in SSU’s final run with a RBI single which scored Kylie Tierce who reached on a double.

Offensively, Moore was 2-for-3 with a pair of runs. Sophomore pitcher Janika May improved to 7-8 in the circle. Amanda Hallman (9-11) tossed a complete game and finished with two strikeouts.

It was all Savannah State in Game 2 as pitcher Amanda McDowell tossed a no-hitter against the Aggies and struck out nine. The Tigers scored all 10 runs in the fourth inning off eight hits and three errors.

Uhrman was 3-for-3 with three RBI, while Amber Hallman and McDowell added two hits apiece.

Senior Shelby Snyder took the loss and fell to 2-8.

The Aggies will conclude the series on Sunday, April 13 with a single game beginning at noon.
