GAINESVILLE, Fla. (February 12, 2015) – Playing its first true road games of the season on Thursday, NJCAA No. 9/FCSAA No. 3 Tallahassee Community College swept a doubleheader from Santa Fe College, winning by the scores of 2-1, in eight innings, and 4-0.
Game two was called after six innings due to darkness.
In the opener, Kiara Johnson’s eighth-inning single scored Danielle Patterson with what proved to be the winning run, and ace pitcher Mariah Rivera did her part in the bottom half to preserve the victory.
Rivera went the distance, allowing only two hits and striking out five.
