Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The Bison softball team entered the day, knowing it had to win 4 games over the next 24 hours in order to win the Summit League tournament.

They beat Western Illinois and IUPUI, outscoring those two by a combined, 15-1.

That put them in the championship against Fort Wayne.

It was scoreless into the 6th, when Jenina Ortega has enough of that, she goes to the opposite alley, the fielder can't make the play, Cheyenne Garcia comes home to make it 1-0 Bison.

Next up is Amanda Grable and she helps tack on the much needed insurance, with a sacrifice fly to left field, Ortega beats the throw home with a great slide.

NDSU wins it, 3-1. The Bison and Mastadons will meet again for a decisive championship game tomorrow morning at 10:30.
