Softball falls to York (Pa)

DOVER, Del – The Wesley College Softball team fell in a pair of CAC games against York College (Pa) on Sunday afternoon.  The first game ended after six innings, 13-1, while game two was closely contested with a score of 5-3. With the two losses, Wesley falls to 13-11 on the season, 1-6 in the CAC, while York advances to 10-18, 2-6.

Game one of the double header started out with one run by York in the top of the first. Wesley got the run back with a double by Nina Marcano that brought Steph Caracozza across the plate. The Wolverines would not get on base again until the bottom of the sixth inning, when they were trailing by 12 runs. Bre Hartman tried to start a rally with a single to open the sixth. Morgan Seymour ripped one up the middle to take first and move Hartman to third but it was not enough to get the Wolverines the five runs they would need to keep the game going.

Lily Engel took the loss while Jennifer Taff grabbed her seventh win for York.

Game two was much different. Both teams were scoreless for the first three innings. The fourth inning saw Brook Creighton spark to life with a triple that scored Sarah Saunders who had walked.

Lindsay Siok kept York hitless for the first four innings. The no-hitter ended in the top of the fifth, when Payton Hill hit one out of the park for York. The game remained at 1-1 until the top of the seventh inning. The Spartans brought four runners across the plate in the top of the seventh, putting Wesley down by four with only half an inning left in the game.

Seymour hit a single while Siok and Marcano loaded the bases after each getting hit by a pitch. Ashly Bendorovich came in to pinch hit and grabbed a double that scored two. Unfortunately, Bendorovich's double would be the last hit of the game for the Wolverines.

Siok would take the loss, allowing five runs with only one earned, while Sara Thacker picked up her third win for the Spartans.

The Wolverines return to the field on Wednesday, April 9th when they face number two ranked Salisbury for a 3:00 PM start at DuPont field in Dover.
