Clark Atlanta and Benedict split Saturday doubleheader

Lady Panthers steal game one, but series is tied heading into Sunday.

ATLANTA–The weather in Atlanta was a bit breezy but warm enough for fans to enjoy the outdoors and a doubleheader between Clark Atlanta and Benedict. One game was a nail-biter, the other was an offensive showcase.

Shalonda Woods drove in the winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning for Clark Atlanta.  The Lady Panthers picked up a 7-6 win to open the three-game weekend series.  Benedict, however, would bounce back very quickly.

Offensive Explosion

The game was tied at five apiece in the top of the fourth inning but after De’Maya Davis scored off a wild pitch there was no turning back.  Benedict would tally 18 runs in the game to double up CAU 18-9.

The series will be decided on Sunday afternoon when both teams meet for game three at 2pm on the CAU campus.
