ROMEOVILLE, Ill. - Allison Mauers two-out single scored Kathleen Rogoz in the bottom of the 14th inning Saturday as the University of Missouri-St. Louis softball team defeated Northern Kentucky University, 5-4, in an elimination game in the losers bracket of the Great Lakes Valley Conference Tournament.
NKU, which finished the season with a 25-24 record, held a 4-3 lead with two out in the bottom of the seventh inning, but an RBI single by Sara Mauck scored Shannon Leahy and forced extra innings.
