Senior Pilar Harden sparked another late inning North Georgia College & State University softball team win as the top-seeded Saints took Game 2 of the NCAA II Southeast Regional 1-0 over King College on Friday afternoon in Dahlonega.
Harden had a two-out triple to deep right field in the bottom of the fifth for the Lady Saints, bringing Katie Block home to score the game’s lone run.
Offensively, Harden led the charge for North Georgia going 2-3 with an RBI to register her 14th multi-hit game of the season, and Block went 1-1 with a run scored after coming on as a pinch runner for Callie Fernandez in the third.
Jessica Coan (24-7) tossed her fourth complete game shutout of the season, giving up just three hits and striking out 11 for the Lady Saints.
North Georgia hosts fifth-seeded Columbus State at 1:30 p.m. today.
