Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - After splitting Saturday night, the series was on the line for the NDSU softball team Sunday afternoon, closing out the weekend with 2nd place IPFW at the Fargodome.

Krista Menke, fresh off an 11-inning 1-hit shutout, pitched 7 more innings today, striking out nine.

She had a career-high 14 K's Saturday night.

The Mastadons finally score on Menke in the third, with a runner on, Alex Bousquet crushes this offering, Bison center-fielder Alex Sobrero dives over the wall, but it's a 2-run home run.

IPFW strikes first.

In the 4th, Cheyenne Garcia tries to give the Bison a lead, with two-on, she smashes it deep to center, but not deep enough.

It ends up being a sac fly, cutting the Dons lead to 2-1.

That's as close as it gets, IPFW wins 3-1 to claim the 3-game series.
