Lady Jaspers take on archrival Iona for a shot at a playoff spot

With just two playoff spots left, Manhattan College's Lady Jaspers took on Iona College in a double-header at Gaelic Park. Manhattan, Iona and Canisius are all 8-6 and in a three-way tie for a spot in the playoffs.

The Lady Jaspers needed just one win, but in Game 1 they fell to Iona 2-1 in 10 innings.

That set up a winner take all Game 2. Early in the game, the Lady Gaels took a 1-0 lead and with great pitching were able to shut down the Jaspers. But finally midway through the game the Jaspers tied it 1-1. Then in the bottom of the 7th with the bases loaded the Jaspers got a shot up the middle and the throw to the plate was not in time.

The Jaspers go on to celebrate with a 2-1 victory and a spot in the playoffs for the first time in five years.
