FULTON, MO -- The Columbia Cougar Softball team snapped a six-game losing streak with a pair of come from behind wins Tuesday at conference rival William Woods (Mo.) University, winning by scores of 4-2 in game one and 3-2 in game two. Columbia improves to 7-10 overall and 2-0 in American Midwest Conference (AMC) play with the two victories.

After three scoreless innings to start game one, the Owls pushed a run across in the bottom of the fourth to grab a 1-0 lead against Cougars starting pitcher Taylor Richter. That lead would hold up until the sixth inning, when Chelsie Crain connected on a two-run home run to left field to put Columbia in front, 2-1. The Cougars added two more runs in the top of the seventh on an RBI single by Marli Hayes and a sacrifice fly from Taylor Atwood for a 4-1 advantage. William Woods would plate a run in the bottom of the frame and put runners on first and third with one out, but Richter got Lindsey LeCuru to line into a double play to preserve the 4-2 victory.

Crain finished 2 for 4 with two RBI to lead the Columbia offense, which had five hits in the contest. Richter picked up her fourth win of the year after allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits. She struck out four batters and walked four.

The Owls got on the board first again in game two, taking a 1-0 lead in the third inning following a pair of fielding errors by the Cougars behind starter Amber Boehme. Columbia evened the score in the bottom half of the fifth on an RBI single by Crain that scored Maria Imhoff, who reached on a walk to start the frame. William Woods answered right back in the top of the sixth with three straight hits with one out to regain a 2-1 lead. The Cougars put runners on second and third with two outs in the bottom of the sixth and took advantage of an error by the Owls to pull in front 3-2 heading into the seventh inning. After a leadoff single to start the seventh, Atwood picked off the potential tying run and Boehme retired the next two hitters to cap off the comeback win.

Columbia was held to five hits in the game, led by Jamie Holmes' 2 for 3 effort. Crain recorded the Cougars' lone RBI of the contest and Whitni Howell contributed one hit and one run scored. Boehme earned her second win of the year in the circle for Columbia, allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits in her seven innings of work.

The Cougars are back in action Wednesday when they host Lindenwood (Mo.) University in a non-conference match-up. First pitch for the doubleheader is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. at Antimi Black Field.
