The William & Mary Tribe plated four in the seventh and two in the eighth to rally for a 7-3 win over College of Charleston on Friday evening in both teams’ Colonial Athletic Association opener at Patriots Point.

The Cougars took the early lead through Donald Hansis’ third homer of the year, a solo shot, on the first pitch of the bottom of the second. After William & Mary answered with onein the next half inning, Landon Choboy lifted a fly ball to deep center in the sixth to score Ari Sechopoulos from third to give the Cougars a 2-1 advantage.

The Tribe countered with a four-run top of the seventh and added two in the eighth to take a 7-2 lead into the eighth. Harrison Hawkins snatched one back with a solo homer in the eighth and the Cougars left the tying run in the on-deck circle in the ninth.

Cougar starter Ty Good battled his way through six and one-third innings, striking out seven and allowing two runs on four hits and four walks in his first career Friday night start.
