Less than 24 hours after suffering one of the more disappointing losses in program history, Valpo showed remarkable resolve by rebounding from a late three-run deficit to defeat the Florida Gators 5-4 at Bart Kaufman Field in Bloomington, Indiana.
The victory kept their season alive as the Brown and Gold advance to play the loser of #13 Indiana/Austin Peay Sunday at 1:00pm ET/12:00 pm CT.
“I just want to say how proud I am of the guys. The players are the ones that have to go out and do the job, and I think we’ve got good ones,” head coach Tracy Woodson said.
