April 4th Review

Atlantic Region

(#14) Kutztown @ (#18) West Chester – PSAC GOTW – Kutztown wins 13-6, loses 3-8 (More info here)

West Chester stays one game up on Kutztown.

Clarion @ Indiana (Pa.) – Postponed until Sunday

Slippery Rock @ Lock Haven – Slippery Rock wins 17-3, 9-3 (8) (More info here)

Slippery Rock is one game back of California (Pa.) now.  Lock Haven is now 3 games back.

(NON CONF) Concord @ Shepherd – Concord wins 7-6, 6-5 (More info http://www.shepherdrams.com/page.cfm?story=24958&cat=exclusives)

Great games between these two evenly matched teams.

Bluefield State @ West Virginia State – WVIAC GOTW – West Virginia State wins 1-0, 7-3

West Virginia State the last undefeated team in conference at 4-0.

Central Region

(#4) Mesa State @ Nebraska-Kearney –  RMAC GOTW – Mesa State wins 7-3 (10), 6-4 (More info here)

Well they actually played Friday, but the result was the same.  The final two games were cancelled.  UNK isn’t going to have a shot at the Plains… and the RMAC divisional titles are locked up more or less by Mesa State and Colorado St. Pueblo.

East Region

Felician @ Post – Postponed until Sunday

Dominican (N.Y.) @ Wilmington (Del.) – CACC GOTW – Dominican wins 6-2, loses 0-3

Wilmington is still up on Dominican by 1 game, just behind Post and Nyack for the lead.

Chestnut Hill @ Nyack – Nyack wins 13-10, 6-4 (More info here)

Chestnut Hill is 5-6, but only 2.5 games out.

Adelphi @ Concordia (N.Y.) –  ECC GOTW – Adelphi wins 8-4 (More info here)

Adelphi is still undefeated and up by 1.5 games on 2nd place C.W. Post now.  Doubleheader with Concordia Sunday.  Could basically make this a two team race with a sweep.

Bentley @ Southern New Hampshire – Bentley wins 7-0, 3-1 (More info here)

Bentley leads Southern New Hampshire by 2.5 games now, and is only .5 games back of Umass Lowell

Assumption @ Pace – Assumption wins 13-4, 4-3 (More info here)

Assumption stays .5 games out, Pace falls to 3.5 games out.

Midwest Region

Bellarmine @ Northern Kentucky –  GLVC GOTW – Northern Kentucky wins 6-4, loses 6-9 (More info here)

Northern Kentucky is now 4.5 games behind Indianapolis in the East.  They need to sweep Sunday.

South Region

Arkansas Tech @ (#5) Southern Arkansas – GSC GOTW – Southern Arkansas wins 15-2, 9-4 (More info here)

Southern Arkansas up 3 games on Arkansas Tech now, and off to a great 10-1 star in conference.  2 More games tomorrow and a chance to finishs Arkansas Tech off.

Miles @ Albany State –  SIAC GOTW – Hah just kidding there’s no way these schools will update their sites and give us a score…

Top teams from the East and West face off.

Lane @ Benedict – WE HAVE A FINAL!!! – Benedict wins 11-1, 10-7

Lane is terrible, the conference standings will no longer have them close next update.

South Central Region

(#12) Texas-Permian Basin @ St. Mary’s –  HC GOTW – Texas-Permian Basin wins 4-2 (More info here)

After this series Texas-Permian Basin emerges up .5 games in conference.

(#10) Abilene Christian @ (#17) Angelo State –  LSC GOTW – Game of the Day – Angelo State wins 23-6, loses 3-5 (More info here)

Angelo manages to stay only 3 games back of Abilene, but needs to get the split by winning tomorrow.

Southeastern Region

(#26) Pfeiffer @ Barton –  CC GOTW – Pfeiffer wins 11-10, loses 5-12

Pfeiffer is now 2.5 games out of 1st, and Barton is now only 2 games out.  They’ll play 2 more tomorrow.  Getting swept tomorrow would be a killer for either team.

North Georgia @ Augusta State – Augusta State wins 16-8, loses 7-8 (More info here)

North Georgia almost got swept today, but scored 2 in the 9th of game 2 to win it.  Augusta State gets to hang around a bit longer only 1 game back of North Georgia, but 3 back of Georgia College.   One more tomorrow.

South Carolina Aiken @ Armstrong Atlantic State – South Carolina Aiken wins 8-3 (More info here)

A sweep tomorrow for USC Aiken ends Armstrong’s title hopes.

(#23) Francis Marion @ (#8) Georgia College – PBC GOTW – Georgia College wins 4-1, loses 3-9 (More info here)

Georgia College ends the series up 2.5 games on Francis Marion.

(#20) Columbus State @ Lander – Columbus State wins 8-0, loses 2-4 (More info here)

One more tomorrow in this series. Lander is already down 3.5 games in conference. Must win.

April 5th Preview

Atlantic Region

Indiana (Pa.) @ Clarion

These two are hanging around in the West, but the loser can probably be written off.

Bluefield State @ West Virginia State

West Virginia State will try to continue their undefeated conferene start.

(NON CONF) Concord @ Shepherd

This matchup provided two good games tomorrow, hopefully these are as good.

East Region

Adelphi @ Concordia (N.Y.)

Concordia might be out if they get swept.

Franklin Pierce @ Southern Connecticut

This league is ssuch a mess, everyone staked togethere.  Both teams are in the running but middle of the pack right now.

Southern New Hampshire @ Bentley

Southern New Hampshire really needs to get this one today.

Pace @ Assumption

Pace really needs the win today to avoid falling out.

Midwest Region

Bellarmine @ Northern Kentucky

I think Northern Kentucky is done if they lose today.

South Region

Arkansas Tech @ (#5) Southern Arkansas

Southern Arkansas looks to finish the sweep, while Arkansas Tech gets two more chances.  If they get swept they are out of the conference title race.

South Central Region

(#10) Abilene Christian @ (#17) Angelo State – Game of the Day.

Angelo State MUST win tomorrow to have a shot at the conference title still.  Game of the Day!

Southeastern Region

Pfeiffer @ Barton

Either team would probably consider getting swept a disaster… but a split might be just as damaging.

North Georgia @ Augusta State

Augusta State can’t afford to get swept.

South Carolina Aiken @ Armstrong Atlantic State

Armstrong Atlantic State can’t get swept here or they kiss their conference title dreams goodbye.

(#20) Columbus State @ Lander

A must win for Lander, who split the games on Saturday.
