GULF SHORES, Ala. - Jacqulin Cappuccilli's RBI single in the bottom of the eighth inning helped No. 18 Central Methodist avenge a 2012 postseason loss to No. 7 William Carey (Miss.). The Eagles (2-3) defeated the Lady Crusaders 2-1 on Friday, highlighting a split of a pair of games on the first day of the Gulf Coast Invitational.

Central Methodist started the day against Bethel (Tenn.). The Eagles took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth when Courtney Dennis took Lady Wildcat pitcher Lizzie Brooks deep for her first homerun of the season.

Bethel (1-3) answered with two runs in the next three innings before Summer Winters' game-winning RBI in the eighth gave the Lady Wildcats a 3-2 triumph.

The second game of the day for Central Methodist was a rematch of last season's NAIA National Championship pool play game which was won by eventual Pool F winner William Carey 4-0.

Friday's game remained scoreless until the top of the eighth inning. The Lady Crusaders (8-3) jumped on the board when Lauren Russell singled up the middle, scoring Ramsi Dykes.

The Eagles responded, trying the game in the bottom of the frame when a Shelby Pohlman bunt plated Erika Reinagel from second base.

After Central Methodist's Nicole Beck reached base on an error by Sarah Beckman, Cappuccilli took the first pitch of her at-bat to shallow center, scoring Nikki Giovenco from second for the game-winner.

Michele Rupard was 2-of-4 at the plate for Central Methodist. Cappuccilli, Reinagel, Pohlman and Johnica Hanke tallied one hit apiece.

Aubrey Utley picked up the win in the circle for the Eagles, tossing a complete game. She allowed one unearned run on four hits while striking out four.

Pitcher Alli McCaleb took the loss, allowing two runs, one earned, on six hits in a complete game performance. She struck out five but surrendered three walks.

William Carey committed a season-high four errors.

Central Methodist faces Bellhaven (Miss.) and No. 11 Lee (Tenn.) on Saturday. First pitch against the Blazers is set for 1 p.m. CT with the contest against the Lady Flames scheduled for 3 p.m.
