Just a day before, the Judson University softball team beat No. 6 seed St. Francis 2-0 to kick off the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Softball Tournament at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbannais.

On Friday, the No. 3 Eagles (37-17) were at it again with St. Francis, and held a 1-run lead heading into the bottom of the seventh. But 2 errors allowed 2 runs to cross, the last on a sacrifice bunt as Judson lost a heartbreaker to St. Francis 3-2 at Tiger Field, which eliminated the Eagles from the conference tournament.

Brianna Di Gioia was 2 for 3 with a double, while Maddie Smith and Shelby Batterton also doubled.

Earlier in the day, Judson advanced in the tournament by beating No. 5 Robert Morris 9-2 on 13 hits. Brianna Tennyson earned the win by giving up 2 runs on 3 hits, while striking out 1 and walking 2 in 7 innings. She also was 3 for 5 at the plate with a double. Allison Catlett went 3 for 4 with 4 RBI, including a 2-run homer in the second and an RBI double in the fourth.
