MIAMI SHORES, Fla. -- Valdosta State's 15-game winning streak came to an end Friday, as the Lady Blazers fell, 6-5, to Tampa in the South regional softball tournament.
Tampa (35-12) jumped on VSU starter Ryndell Langford (3-4) for five runs in the first inning, though only one was earned, thanks to a VSU error.
Brooke King replaced Langford and limited Tampa to one run in 6.1 innings of work.
The Lady Blazers tried to rally, with two runs in the second, two more in the fourth, and a run in the seventh, and had the tying and winning runs on base in the seventh, but wasn't able to get them across.
VSU moves into the loser's bracket, and may get a chance at revenge with Tampa today. The Lady Blazers will play the loser of Saturday's Tampa-Barry game at 6:30 p.m.
