KCC softball beats No. 2 LSU-Eunice

COLUMBUS, Ga. - All-American Taylor Nearad delivered a walk-off RBI double in the bottom of the seventh inning Saturday as the fifth-ranked Kirkwood Eagles edged second-ranked LSU-Eunice, 10-9, at the NFCA Classic in Georgia.

Audra Bridenstine led off the bottom of the seventh with a walk and was bunted to second base. Nearad then blasted the ball toward right-center and Bridenstine scored easily with the winning run.

Nearad went 2-for-5 with two RBIs. Morgan Frost was 3-for-4 and scored three runs. Lexi Ferrari and Angie McBeain had two hits. Maddie Hansen and Bridenstine had two RBIs.

Lexi Kinnaird picked up the victory in relief.

Kirkwood (13-1) lost to top-ranked Jones County, 5-0, in its other game at the tournament Saturday for their first loss of the season.
