(WTNH)–When people hear Yale and Quinnipiac, they probably think hockey. But on Wednesday, an important matchup between the two schools took place on the softball field.
It’s called “Chris’s Game.”
The Bobcats and Bulldogs honored the memory of 19-year-old Chris Labbadia, who lost his life in a car crash in August.
Chris was the son of Quinnipiac assistant Lynn, and the brother of Yale shortstop Brittany, whose Bulldogs were up 1-0 until a sixth-inning rally by QU put the Bobcats up 3-1.
The game-winning knock came off the bat of Keilani Finley.
Quinnipiac holds on to win the first game of a doubleheadder, 3-1.
