MUSKOGEE — The Northeastern State softball team took two road games from Bacone College on Tuesday afternoon.

NSU 9, BC 4 (first game)

Bacone plated single runs in the first and third innings, and it took runs in the fifth and sixth innings from the visitors to send the contest into extra innings.

Northeastern State plated seven runs in the eighth frame to secure the come-from-behind victory after the Lady Warriors could only respond with two.

NSU junior Navada Campos was 2-for-3 with three runs batted in, two runs scored and a solo home run in the fifth. Kelsi Hilderbrandt and Amanda Harjo were both 3-for-5 for the Riverhawks, and Harjo drove home two and scored twice.

NSU freshman reshman Kayce Wooldridge (7-10) threw a complete game to earn the victory. She allowed four runs on eight hits.

NSU 11, BC 2 (second game)

The offense carried over to the second game for the RiverHawks, as the visitors plated runs in all six innings en route to the run-rule triumph.

Campos, Harjo, and junior Megan Robison all hit home runs. Hilderbrandt sent two over the wall and finished with three runs batted in. Harjo and Robison both scored twice and drove home two.

NSU sophomore Shelby Enloe (6-1) threw the first five innings and earned the win in the circle.

NSU is now scheduled for a neutral-site doubleheader against Nebraska Kearney on Thursday in Bolivar, Mo.

NSU baseball falls to Rogers State

TULSA — The Northeastern State baseball team dropped a 5-2 decision to Rogers State University Tuesday afternoon at ONEOK Field.

The RiverHawks (21-18) and Hillcats (30-13) battled at the home of the Tulsa Drillers for the second-straight year, with RSU picking up its second straight win in the series.

Rogers State, serving as the home team, scored in the first inning to take the early lead. Northeastern State tied the game in the top of the third when junior Cody Robinson recorded a fielder’s choice RBI to plate senior Trent Wilkins.

The Hillcats responded with two in the home half of the frame and added another pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth. NSU could only muster one more run in the game, a marker from senior Chad Davidson in the top of the ninth, as the visitors on the scoreboard lost by the 5-2 margin.

Rogers State outhit the RiverHawks 7-5, and the teams combined for seven errors.

Wilkins was 1-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored to pace Northeastern State. Sophomore Hayden Walch (3-5) started on the mound and took the loss after allowing three runs on four hits in 3 2/3 innings.

T.J. Law (1-1) earned the win on the mound after tossing three frames of relief. He did not concede a run and only allowed one hit.

NSU will stay out of conference for a doubleheader with Oklahoma Panhandle State that will begin at 11 a.m. today at Thomas C. Rousey Field.
