A 3 – 14 Augsburg team gave the Number 12-ranked Central softball team a scare, but the Dutch prevailed 7 – 4 in Sunday’s doubleheader. The Dutch were down 4 – 0 in the second and had the bases loaded, when Coach George Wares called upon freshman Abbie Voas to pinch hit, and she promptly slaughtered a ball over the left-centerfield wall to tie the game, and Central wouldn’t look back. Central used that motivation in the nightcap in a 7 – 2 win in game two. The Dutch are now 16 – 4 overall and will play a difficult doubleheader today against Wisconsin – Eau Claire at home at 1:00 p.m.
