MYRTLE BEACH, SC – The Wesley College women's softball team won their last game of their spring break trip against the team that they were defeated by in the opening game of the trip. The Wolverine's return to the first state with a winning record of 9-3.
The first game of the day ended in five innings but not the way that the team would have hoped. Wesley went down early, giving up four runs in the first inning to the Albertus Magnus Falcons. Steph Caracozza led off the bottom of the first with a hit but was stranded on base after two strike outs and a ground out. Caracozza would grab a triple in the third inning and score on an RBI from Lindsay Siok but she would be the only Wolverine to touch home in the game.
Siok took the loss, allowing two earned runs and giving up eight hits.
Playing a team that had already defeated them once in the week after they had just been run ruled by a team would be difficult for most teams but the Wolverines would not go down without a fight.
The Wolverines faced the Principia Panthers, a team that had defeated them 6-3 just four days earlier. Caracozza was ready to score again after her lone run against the Falcons in the day's first game. She started the game off with a triple and Siok singled to bring her home. Devin Mackay would reach on an error and a single by Sarah Saunders would score Siok in the second run of the inning. Two runs in the first would be all that the Wolverines would need but they were not ready to end the game. The team would score another nine runs in the game before the match was called at the end of the fifth inning.
Caracozza scored four runs on the day with three triples and a double. Samantha Mahoski would chip in two hits and two runs.
Siok took the win in the game , allowing no hits and striking out three batters in her three innings on the mound.
The Wolverines will face Widener in a double header at home on Wednesday, March 19. The first game will start at 3:00 PM.
