Clarksville, Ark.-The Lady Eagles only senior came through with a clutch single in the bottom of the eighth to push Ozarks past Louisiana College 2-1 in game one of Saturday?s American Southwest Conference double-header.
Senior outfielder Ali Mathis laced the game-winning hit with two outs and the bases loaded to send Ozarks (9-11, 2-6 ASC) to its second win over Louisiana College (11-4, 5-3 ASC) in as many days. Amber Rollins drew a walk to put Ozarks first runner on base in the eighth and Heather Roberts followed with a double to put a pair of runners in scoring position. With two outs, Miah Williams drew another walk to load the bases for Mathis. The left-handed Mathis, who is hitting .458, promptly delivered a clutch single to left centerfield for the Lady Eagles.
