BENTONVILLE, Ark. – The Northwest Missouri State softball team closed out the UAM Quad-State Classic Sunday with a pair of wins. The Bearcats earned an 8-5 victory over UMSL and an 11-3 win in five innings from host Arkansas-Monticello to finish a successful weekend.

In Sunday’s early game, Northwest scored eight runs on 10 hits and held off a rally from UMSL to cap the 8-5 win.

In their final game of the tournament the Bearcats stopped a red-hot Arkansas-Monticello team. Northwest halted UAM, who had won six straight, taking a five inning 11-3 win from the host school.

The Bearcats only loss of the tournament came Saturday morning to the University of Illinois-Springfield. After jumping out to an early 2-0 lead the Prairie Stars rallied scoring six unanswered runs for an 11-3 win ending the game in the sixth inning.
