PHOENIXVILLE, Pa. - Wesley College's softball team wrapped up the 2012 season with a pair of five-inning victories at Valley Forge Christian College on Thursday afternoon.  The Wolverines (15-20-1) won the opener, 21-1, before taking game two, 14-1.

Five players recorded at least two RBIs in the opener and every Wolverine had at least one, led by Ashlyn Booth with five.  The senior from Laurel, Del., went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and her team-leading ninth home run of the season.  Tamerra Starr (2-for-5, three runs) drove in four, Samantha Barker (4-for-5, three runs) drove in three and both Ashly Bendorovich (3-for-3, two runs) and Taylor Hendricks (3-for-3, two runs) drove in two. Barker also stole two bases, as did Jessica Barranco (1-for-3, four runs, two walks).

Hendricks also had her best outing of the season in the circle, allowing just one run on two hits while striking out six in the five inning complete game.

The Wolverines scored one in the first before erupting for 12 runs on seven hits in the third inning.  They would also tack on two in the fourth and five more in the sixth.

A junior from Havre de Grace, Md., Hendricks also went the distance in the circle in game two, allowing just one runs on five hits.  She also went 2-for-4 with two runs scored from the plate.

Six hits and seven errors helped Wesley score 12 runs in the first inning of the second game to put the game quickly out of reach.  Booth had another four RBIs in the game after going 3-for-5 while Starr drove in three and both Bendorovich and Nicole Piscopo plated two each.  Barranco, and Bendorovich also had three hits in the game and every player scored at least once.
