Alabama Softball entered the bottom of the fourth inning with a slim 1-0 lead in the Tuscaloosa Super Regional on Saturday night at Rhoads Stadium.
Crimson Tide center Kristen White did everything she could to keep that lead for her team. She made a leaping catch against the center field wall to deny Northwestern shortstop Maeve Nelson a solo shot to lead the start of the fourth inning.
Watch the replay of the play here:
Alabama starting pitcher Jaala Torrence retired the last two batters of the inning to end the fourth inning.
The Tide took a 1-0 lead late in the first inning when Bailey Downing drove Ashley Prange on a sacrifice fly. Prange had led the match with a brace.
Northwestern tied the game in the bottom of the fifth on an RBI single by Jordyn Rudd.
The Crimson Tide dropped Game 1 of the Super Regional 3-1 to the Wildcats and need a win on Saturday to keep their season alive.
