Posted February 24

North Carolina Logo

— San Jose State rallied for a 5-4 win over North Carolina in the Bank of Hawaii Invitational championship game.

Lauren Walker doubled for two RBIs to give UNC the lead in the fifth, but Jessica Garcia's grand slam in the sixth put the Spartans back on top for the win.

"I thought we put together a really good weekend and played really well to get into the championship game," head coach Donna J. Papa said. "We made some mistakes and didn't finish some plays, and that really cost us. It was disappointing not to win the championship game after we had played so well, but hopefully we'll get a championship game later down the road. Overall, as a team, we played really well and we can build on some good things from this week."

Mateen led off the game with a single to left and advanced to second on a sac bunt by Amy Nece.Jenna Kelly then singled to left, moving Mateen to third before she came home on a passed ball.

Behind a pair of singles and a hit batter, the Spartans were threatening to score with bases loaded in the second, but Spingola fanned one batter before Mateen made a great diving catch to get the Tar Heels out of the jam.

San Jose State evened the game in the fourth, as Nicole Schultz singled, moved to second on a walk to Brittanie Akey and then scored on a single to left by Kryn Masutani.

Carolina took back the lead in the fifth as Darby Rosen reached base on an error and moved to second when Satterfield reached on a fielder's choice. Lauren Walker then knocked a two-run double to center to put UNC up 3-1.

After a couple of Tar Heel errors and a fielder's choice, San Jose State had bases loaded in the sixth with two outs when Garcia cleared the diamond with a home run to center.

UNC started to make a comeback in the bottom of the seventh when Satterfield singled up the middle, moving to second on a sac bunt by Nece. Satterfield advanced to third on a single by Jenna Kelly and then scored on a Parrish ground out. The Tar Heels had two runners on with a chance to make a comeback, but a final ground out ended the game.

Lauren Batten (1-1) took the loss, pitching 1.2 inning while giving up three runs and one walk.

Up Next: North Carolina opens ACC play at Virginia Tech next weekend. The Tar Heels will face the Hokies at noon and 2 p.m. on Saturday and at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
