Lady Chants stay alive with 3-2 victory over Campbell

Coastal was able to fend off Campbell to take game nine of the 2012 Big South Softball Championship by a 3-2 score on Friday afternoon at Radford Softball Field in Radford , Va.

Coastal earned its 40th win of the season as they improved to 40-18 on the year, while Campbell ends its season at 30-29.

Kiana Quolas helped give Coastal the 1-0 advantage in the bottom of the first by hitting a single to the right side to score Brooke Donovan, who reached base on a double to left field for the Chanticleers first hit of the game.

Campbell struck back in the top of the third inning when Stephanie Jones hit a single up the middle that scored Jessi Lane to tie the score at 1-1. Ericka Nesbitt advanced to third on the play by Jones, but she was unable to advance home, as the Chanticleer defense picked up the final two outs of the inning during the Fighting Camels next two at bats.

During the fourth inning the Chanticleers regained the lead when Nicole Saggiomo crossed home plate on Sara Rasley’s sacrifice fly. Jessie Winans loaded the bases during the next at bat after she was walked, but Campbell picked up the final out of the inning on a pop up by Sarah Maples.

The Fighting Camels tied the game up 2-2 in the fifth inning. Jones hit a single up the middle that scored Jessi Lane and moved Ericka Nesbitt to third with one out. Coastal walked the next batter before getting the following two batters out.

Heading into the bottom of the seventh the score remained tied at 2-2. Cacia Pierre kept Coastal in the tournament, as she hit a single up the middle with two outs to score Courtney Howell, who was pinch running for Quolas after she hit a double to right field, to give Coastal the 3-2 victory.
