AMBLER, Pa. - Laura Bohning tied Saint Louis' single-game RBI record by driving in all five SLU runs, but the Billikens were edged 6-5 by Temple Friday afternoon in an Atlantic 10 Conference game at Ambler Field.

Bohning gave the Billikens (19-30, 6-9 A-10) a 2-0 lead in the top of the third inning with her team-leading seventh double of the season. She put Saint Louis on top 5-2 in the fifth with her fourth home run of the year, tying her for the team lead. Both hits came with two outs.

However, Temple (25-19, 10-5 A-10) pulled even in the bottom of the third on Christina Sykora's one-out solo home run and Sarah Prezioso's two-out RBI single. In the fifth, Prezioso matched Bohning's RBI total for the day with a one-out grand slam that proved to be the game winner.

Jessica Van Nostrand ignited both SLU rallies. Van Nostrand led off with a single in the third and advanced on Kerri Dockins' walk and Jessica Buschjost's sacrifice. A fly ball to left was not deep enough to score a run, but Bohning's two-bagger to left center put the Bills on the board.

Van Nostrand's leadoff walk sparked Saint Louis in the fifth. Dockins again sacrificed, and the Billikens added a runner when Temple unsuccessfully tried to retire Van Nostrand on Buschjost's ground ball to the shortstop. One out later, Bohning drove a pitch over the center-field wall.

Buschjost and Lindsay Friedman registered a single apiece. Hannah Huebbe (10-13) absorbed the loss.

The Billikens and Owls conclude their two-game series Saturday at 11 a.m. (CT).
