    PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College softball team defeated Boston College, 7-6, Wednesday afternoon in Providence, R.I. after scoring three runs in the final inning to earn the victory.

    The Friars (16-34, 6-12 BIG EAST) gave up the first run of the game in the top of the first but pulled even on an RBI single from junior Jessie Bryant (Marlborough, Mass.) in the bottom half of the inning. The Eagles (22-27, 2-16 ACC) would add one run in the third, fourth, and fifth innings to pull ahead 4-1, but the Friars would tie the game again, 4-4, on a three-run home run by junior Stephanie Kiesel (Ramona, Calif.) in the bottom of the fifth inning.

    The Eagles would continue their trend and added one run in both the sixth and seventh innings, taking a 6-4 lead into the bottom of the seventh. Bryant earned her second RBI of the day with a double and sophomore Marie Flego (Little Silver, N.J.) knocked in the tying and game-winning runs with a two-run single to complete the comeback. Junior Corinne Clauss (Davie, Fla.) collected her eighth win of the season and her 17th complete game.

    The Friars will travel to DePaul for a three game set this weekend to close out the regular season, beginning with a doubleheader on Saturday, May 5 at 12:00 p.m. The Friars are battling for the final spot in the BIG EAST Tournament.
