Softball scoring woes continue
BEMIDJI, Minn. - Scoring problems continued for the Bemidji State University softball team Wednesday afternoon as it failed to score any runs on the day in a doubleheader against the University of Minnesota, Crookston at the BSU Softball Field. The Golden Eagles downed the Beavers with scores of 6-0 and 5-0 in the two games.

BSU’s record now falls to 7-28 (2-16 NSIC). Bemidji State has been held without a run for the past 28 innings, stretching back to the final inning against Southwest Minnesota State on Saturday, April 17.

Right-hander Courtney Anderson (Virgina, Minn.) started both games in the circle for the Beavers, pitching a total of eight innings on the day. Anderson (3-13) only gave up six hits and four runs while striking-out 14 batters. In the third inning of the first game after giving up a grand slam, Anderson retired the next four batters on strikeouts.

Searching for their first conference wins, the Golden Eagles played well on defense striking-out 10 Beavers while stranding 11 more on base.

Bemidji State now hits the road for the next four days, playing one doubleheader each day. Tomorrow the Beavers take on Minot State in a nonconference duel which is slated to start at 2 p.m.
