SIOUX CITY, IOWA - The 2015 Lindsey Wilson softball season came to end on Thursday night, May 28, 2015, in the National Championship Game of the 2015 NAIA Softball World Series.

The Blue Raiders (53-8) took the first game of the evening 3-0 to force the "if necessary" national title game, but then just ran out of steam eventually falling to Auburn-Montgomery (Ala.) 10-0 in the finale.

Chelsea Showers provided a pair of RBI doubles and Travatia Bowden added a solo home run in game one for the Blue Raider offense.

Senior pitcher Jordan Hood was masterful in game one tossing a complete-game three-hit shutout with three strikeouts and just one walk, retiring a string of 14-straight batters en route to the 3-0 win.

But in game two, the WarHawks were finally able to start connecting with the ball, while Lindsey Wilson struggled as they faced two-time World Series MVP Cassie Jones of AUM in the circle.

Auburn-Montgomery eventually pulled away
