Well here we go softball fans. The Necks face SDst. in a winner take all game at 5:30 pm. tonight in Fargo. WIU played three hard fought games at Brookings, another win would have meant the regular season championship. But the Necks won the final and I think they are definitely ready to put down the JackRabbits tonight for a trip to the semifinals with NDSt. Just got a hunch the game will go 3-2! Go Necks! ;) jc

No score yet. Playing some good tunes in Fargo. The players are into it with a lot of cheers and chants.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

Western was down 8-7 going into the bottom of the 7th inning. Western got a run to tie the game 8-8. And then Western wins the game 12-8 on a walk-off grand slam by Holly Hoelting.

Weather: 60, Partly Cloudy, Winds N at 15 mph.

Attendance at Fargo = 152.

#3 Western will play #2 North Dakota State Thursday at 2:30 PM. If Western wins that game, they will play Friday at 1PM in a winner's bracket game. But if they lose that game, they will play the loser of the #1 IUPUI vs #4 South Dakota game on Thursday at 5PM in an elimination game.

In today's other game, South Dakota beat Omaha 11-4.

Appears to be a problem with the video feed - first I couldn't get it, now it's down.

Video seems to be flaky at times. You can get the Bison radio feed with the following link.
