VSU sweeps ASU in Regional rematch


The last time Albany State and Valdosta State met on the softball diamond, the Lady Blazers walked off for a 5-4 win in the first game of the 2013 NCAA Regionals.

The rivalry renewed Tuesday with similar results.

Senior righty Brianna Hancock held the Lady Rams to just one hit, but still had to get out of a two on, one out jam in the seventh to seal the 2-1 win.

Hancock struck out 13 to pick up her seventh win of the season.

In game two, the Lady Blazers rallied for four runs over the fifth and sixth innings to take control of the game.

VSU earned the sweep with a 5-2 win in the second game.

VSU moves to 14-6 with the two wins. ASU falls to 2-7.

Both teams are back in action Saturday. The Lady Blazers host Delta State, while Albany State hosts Clark Atlanta.
