Nicholls State 1, Mississippi Valley State 0
ITTA BENA, Miss. - Amid numerous weather-related delays, Mississippi Valley State was limited to one hit in coming up short 1-0 to Nicholls State Tuesday evening.
The two teams were originally scheduled for a double header, but the contest was called in the top of the seventh as the weather wouldn't cooperate. The scheduled second game was cancelled.
Neither side could generate much offense, but Nicholls was able to get the bat on the ball at numerous points in the game. However, MVSU's Rebekah Clinton and the Devilettes defense managed to keep the Lady Colonels off the scoreboard sans the third inning, when a run scored via a wild pitch.
However, MVSU was unable to get anything going as it was held hitless until the sixth inning, compliments of Jordan Brown. The Devilettes were unable to push her across to tie the game.
