JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (April 13, 2014) - Senior pitcher Katie Wolff (La Grange, Texas) allowed just three earned runs through five and one-third innings of work Sunday afternoon; however, ETSU's offense mustered only two runs, as the Bucs suffered a narrow, 4-2 setback to North Florida.

The victory gave UNF the series win, as the two teams split a double-header Saturday.

Wolff hurled a no-hitter through three innings, and had allowed just two hits after five before UNF put together a three-run sixth inning.

Freshman Taylor Carter (Brazil, Ind.) minimized the damage done by the Ospreys (25-19, 9-12) in the sixth inning. After relieving Wolff and inheriting runners on first and second with just one out, Carter retired two of UNF's next three batters to escape the inning, forcing UNF to strand three runners on base.

Junior Nicole Fox (Peachtree City, Ga.) led off ETSU's half of the sixth with a single to the shortstop. Fox then proceeded to swipe second base, her team-best 18th stolen base in just 20 attempts.

Back-to-back singles by Wolff and fellow senior Jackie Baird (Ooltewah, Tenn.) plated Fox to cut the Bucs' deficit to 4-1.

After Danielle Knoetze (San Diego, Calif.) reached base on a fielder's choice, junior Alex Everett (Soddy Daisy, Tenn.) came to the plate with the bases loaded and just one out. Everett popped up to the catcher; however Carter followed by drawing a walk, plating one more run.

Casey Horner (Whitesburg, Tenn.) struck out swinging to end the inning, leaving three runners on base.

The Bucs (16-25, 5-13) were unable to manufacture any runs in the bottom of the seventh, falling, 4-2.

ETSU will conclude its seven-game homestand Wednesday, April 16 as the Bucs host Southern Conference opponent Furman for a double-header. Wednesday's games will begin at 4:00 and 6:00 p.m.
