The Arizona Western College softball squad knows they'll need some late season road wins to help their ACCAC Region 1 playoff chances. They had the tall task of playing a doubleheader at Coolidge against conference leader Central Arizona.
In game one, Lady Mats starting pitcher gave up two runs in the first two innings before getting relieved in the fifth inning after giving up two more. AWC's bats also proved to be cold, only mustering one run off of three hits in a 4-1 loss.
Game two had a better start for AWC, where they scored two in the first three innings. Unfortunately, the wheels came off in the fifth when the Vaqueras sent 11 batters to the plate and came away with six runs in that inning alone. It proved to be enough to break the Lady Mats.
The 9-3 loss would complete the four game season sweep of AWC. The Lady Mats will attempt to bounce back at Pima in their final road doubleheader series of the season.
