IRVING, Texas — Rain forced the cancellation of the final few games on Friday and all of Saturday’s schedule in the Lone Star Conference softball crossover tournament.

Fourteen games were scheduled each day — pitting teams from the LSC’s South Division against teams from the North — but only eight were completed on Friday before the rest of the day’s action was stopped. Late-afternoon rains made field conditions unplayable for Saturday.

Eastern New Mexico University went 0-2 on Friday, losing 5-1 in eight innings to 10th-ranked Northeastern State and 3-1 to Southeastern Oklahoma. The Zias (20-20) had been slated to face Southwestern Oklahoma and Midwestern State on Saturday.
