MOLINE, Ill. - The opener didn't go St. Scholastica's way as the Saints fell 7-1 to 15th-ranked Buena Vista University (Iowa) on Wednesday night at the NCAA Division III Augustana Regional.

The Saints will now play tomorrow against DePauw University (Ind.), who upset top-ranked Webster University (Mo.) 2-1 to begin the day. A CSS loss would end its season.

Austin Colvard (Little Canada, Minn./Roseville HS) led off Wednesday night's game with a single and then advanced to third after a Beaver error. However, the Saints would strikeout three straight times to leave Colvard at third.

Buena Vista (37-7) broke through in the bottom of the third as a Tanner Truesdell RBI single made it 1-0.

In the fourth, the Beavers put together a big inning after a walk, followed by four straight singles as Buena Vista plated three in the inning to extend its lead to 4-0.

The Beavers then added a run in fifth, sixth and seventh innings to make it 7-0. The lone CSS run came in the eighth when Colvard came home on a Buena Vista error to make the final score 7-1.

The Saints see their 20-game winning streak come to an end in the defeat. They also saw their regional opener winning streak end, after winning that game each of the last two years.

The Saints (30-11) and Tigers will play tomorrow at 3:30 p.m.
