Fairfield Fights Back For A Split

Fairfield 5
Manhattan 2

Box Score

Just in...Kelli Panter (pictured) held Manhattan to 2 runs and helped put her Fairfield Stags back in the driver's seat.

Sarah Minice, who was pulled in the first game of the doubleheader, was expected to start the second game. She didn't, and teammate Kelli Panter gave a gutsy performance at Gaelic Park to save Fairfield's season, at least for another day. Kristie Trifiolis hit a home run and drove home 3 runs to lead the Stags offensively.

Neither team is eliminated from contention for the MAAC Championship. There are a couple of scenarios involved, including Niagara. But Manhattan has ended MAAC play, so their fate is in others' hands.
