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 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.
