Baltimore, Maryland - The Lady bison lost a close game to Coppin State 2-1, in a game that saw very little offensive production.
In the first game of a double-header, the Eagles (13-14) struck first in the bottom of the top frame, scoring on a fielder's choice RBI by centerfielder Emily DeJesus.
Pitcher Dominique Lawrence gave up seven hits in the game. Eagles pitcher Paige Arnold produced two of those hits and also stole home in the third that would prove to be the winning score.
In the second game, the Lady Bison struck first but couldn't hold onto the lead, with the Eagles winning in the same fashion, 2-1.

Coppin St. Second-baseman Josker singled and advanced to second on a wild pitch and eventually scored on a passed ball. While, designated hitter Denlinger doubled and scored on a single by first-baseman Whaley.
