Nuoro ends Bollate's perfect season, series splits reign

Jolene Henderson allowed only a single hit while strikout out 12 to end Bollate's unbeaten streat at 13 and pick up a key victory, solidifying their hold on second place, and staying within striking distance of first place.  Bollate rebounded to take game 2 behind a dazzling 15 strikeout one hit performance by Greta Cecchetti.

Meanwhile in the girone B, Bussolengo missed an opportunity to distance themselves from idle second place Forli atop the standings, after a 1-0 victory and leading game two 1-0, two late runs by Pianoro earned them the series split. In the end all three series split and things remained balanced.
