Due to wet and rainy conditions, the second day of action at the 2022 GPAC Softball Tournament has been pushed to Friday (May 6). The GPAC made the announcement regarding the postponement of the games early on Thursday morning. The Concordia University Softball team is now set to play an elimination game against host Northwestern at 12 p.m. CT on Friday as part of the Northwestern Bracket held at the NWC Softball Diamond in Orange City, Iowa.

Later in the day, the Bulldogs (23-23) bounced back for a 6-5 win over College of Saint Mary while keeping the season alive. Below is the schedule for Friday's games at the Northwestern Bracket.
