FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford softball team continued its Florida trip with a pair of games Saturday.
The Panthers dropped the first contest of the day against North Central 7-0 before rallying but falling short against SUNY Brockport 10-8.
"Tough day against two good teams," Head Coach Tina Phillips said. "Happy to see us rally at end of the second game. Just need some bats going in our lineup and sure up some little things. But that is why we are here."
In game one, the Panthers fell behind early against North Central as the Cardinals scored two in the bottom of the first and three in the bottom of the third.
Two more runs in the sixth for North Central rounded out the scoring for the Cardinals.
In game two, Brockport held a 10-1 lead after five-and-a-half innings, the Panthers' lone run coming in the fifth on an RBI single from Dadzaa.
But the late rally would end there and Brockport would survive for the win.
Kerrigan Hoffmann started in the circle for the Panthers and tossed all seven innings.
Lindsey Hull added a pair of hits for the Panthers.
Up next, Pitt-Bradford will wrap up its Florida trip with two morning games Saturday against Knox (9 a.m.) and Crown (11 a.m.) at Century Link Sports Complex.
