AKRON, Ohio. The Northern Illinois softball team suffered an 11-6 loss to Buffalo in its first round game of the 2014 Mid-American Conference Tournament on Wednesday at Firestone Stadium.

The Huskies (23-30) struggled to get off the field and Buffalo (28-20) took advantage, scoring a run in every inning, many of them coming with two outs. Emily Naegele provided the lone bright spot and much of the offense for NIU as she went 4 for 4 with five RBIs against the No. 2 seed in the loss.

The Huskies, a No. 7 seed, will face No. 3 seed Akron at 6:30 p.m. today in their second game of the tournament.
