It was a game of early domination, and then it was a game with the potential of a late comeback. It was a game of prominent pitching prowess, and then it was a game of walks and double-digit hits.
In a doubleheader best described as a tale of two games for the North Carolina softball team Sunday, the Tar Heels recorded a 7-1 win, and later that afternoon, an 8-5 loss.
“The first game we just had a great mentality and went out and just attacked the ball,” coach Donna Papa said. “In game two, that was Georgia Tech.”
Early in the first game, UNC showed flashes of a problem the team has been dealing with all season. The Tar Heels managed to load the bases with no outs but failed to bring a run home.
In the second inning, the Tar Heels again found themselves in position to pull ahead of the Yellow Jackets.
