VERMILLION, S.D. -- The Coyote softball team made sure senior day against UMKC was one to remember for their outgoing seniors.
USD rallied from down 4-0 to take game one 8-7 in 11 innings. The Coyotes followed that up with an 8-2 win in the nightcap.
Down 4-0 in the bottom of the 5th, USD got a sac fly from Christine Broders and an RBI single from Katie Cochran to make it 3-2. The Yotes scored three times in the sixth highlighted by Allie Daly's 2-run homer. Kansas City scored a pair on RBI singles in the seventh, but USD sent the game to extra innings by getting an unearned run with two outs in the bottom of the frame.
After each team scored a run in the 9th the Coyotes finally won the game in the 11th when Morgan Hancock scored on a throwing error. Homeruns by Yvon Minogue and Daly helped USD break the second game open.
The two teams play again tomorrow at noon in USD's final home game.
