The Lions score five in the seventh to walk off Weber State.

TUCSON, Ariz. – Trailing by four runs in the bottom of the seventh, the Texas A&M University-Commerce softball team completed an empathic comeback to down the Weber State Wildcats, 8-7, in walk-off fashion on Sunday afternoon at Hillenbrand Stadium. 

Down 7-3 entering the seventh, Avery Zeigler (Southlake Carroll) singled to lead off the inning and was pinch-run by KK Cosek (Helendale, Calif.). Shelby Hodge (Katy – Cinco Ranch) came in as a pinch hitter and hit a base hit. Emma Olsen (Elk Grove, Calif.) came to pinch run for her. 

Camile Nunez (Madera, Calif.) drove in Cosek with a sacrifice fly to right, while Olsen scored on a two-run no-doubt home run to left by Ayanna Williams (Round Rock – Cedar Ridge), her second home run in as many days.
