Short Story: The UAlbany softball team defeated Maine 3-2 in the eighth inning as a result of an RBI single by Sarah Petzold.

Coach Chris Cannata: “The weather was tough to play in today, and both pitchers and both teams really played well.

These conference games are always battles and I don't expect tomorrow to be any different.”
