Raiders rally past San Diego Christian

Harlee Donovan's RBI double in the fifth inning gave the Southern Oregon softball team the lead for good and Karlee Coughlin tossed a complete game as the Raiders beat San Diego Christian 4-2 to rebound from a painful 6-5 loss to Biola earlier in the day Thursday at West Covina, California.

The Raiders played Arizona Christian later in the day but the result was not available at press time.

Against San Diego Christian, SOU trailed 2-0 after SDC scored a run in the second and another in the third.

Southern Oregon tied the game in the fourth when Rebecca Velasquez beat out a fielder's choice ground ball, allowing Nicole Cardoza to score. 

After Donovan's run-scoring double to right scored Tyler Burke, SOU added an insurance run when Kayleen Smith came home on a fielder's choice.

SOU's comeback may have helped take some of the sting away from the earlier game, during which Biola rallied from a 5-0 deficit by scoring three in the sixth and three in the seventh, winning the game on Kayla Neff's RBI double to right.
