Manhattan Survives; Canisius Eliminated

Amy Bright pitched her team to a new day
Manhattan 2
Canisius 1

The Manhattan Jaspers eliminated the host Canisius Golden Griffins, and will play again Friday at the MAAC Championship.

Manhattan squeaked by the host Griffs 2-1, scoring both their runs in the first inning. Mickayla Romero's double, which scored Jenn Vazquez and Amanda Paxson, both of whom had singled, gave the Jaspers all the runs they would need. Canisius starter Madi Weathers did pitch shutout ball the rest of the way, but her team could manage but one run, that on Jessica Berzins' seventh inning RBI single. Amy Bright, recovered from Manhattan's first game loss, struck out eight Griffs in earning the win.

Manhattan will play Siena in an elimination game Friday. Canisius was eliminated.
