Owls Hold Off Raiders 5-3

Barton Picks Up First Win of Season

The Florida Atlantic University softball team defeated Wright State 5-3 in its first game of day 2 of the Eller Media Classic.

Amber Bartonís two-run homerun put FAU (10-8) ahead in the top of the first inning. The score was tied in the top of the third when Amy Bukovich (Boca Raton, FL/Olympic Heights HS) scored on a Caitlyn Bliss (Lutz, FL/Manatee CC) base hit to once again give the Owls the lead, 3-2. A Hailey Broyles (Pembroke Pines, FL/ Pembroke Pines Charter HS) sacrifice fly gave FAU a two-run cushion in the fourth inning.

The Raiders best threat came in the fifth with a run already scored and the bases loaded with none out. Carrie Ann Potter (Stratford, CT / Stratford HS), who entered in relief of starter Amber Barton (Osteen, FL/Pine Ridge HS), was able to get out of the inning with no more runs scoring. Blair Bodenmiller (Orlando, FL/Dr. Phillips HS) hit her second homerun of the season for the final margin of victory.

Barton went four innings for her first win of the season, Potter pitched three innings for her second save of the year.
