|Amy Bright's 8 K shutout lifts Manhattan to title chance|
The Manhattan Lady Jaspers just eliminated the defending champion Marist Red Foxes at the MAAC Championship in Fairfield. Manhattan will now play Iona for a chance at the crown.
Amy Bright was lights out in the pitching circle, striking out eight while limiting Marist to just three hits. Manhattan scored the only run of the game in the bottom of the sixth inning when Jenn Vazquez singled home Katie Bowen, who had led off the inning with a single of her own.
Manhattan plays Iona next. A win by the Gaels gives them the title; A Manhattan win creates a winner take all game Sunday.
