YORK, Pa. – Wesley College's softball team dropped a pair of Capital Athletic Conference games at York (Pa.) on Sunday afternoon. The Wolverines, who fell, 3-1 in the opener, and 8-2 in the nightcap are now 16-5 overall and 0-4 in the CAC while the Spartans move to 13-7 on the year and 2-2 in league play.
Despite outhitting York in game one, and a perfect 3-for-3 performance by Sarah Saunders, the Wolverines were unable to capitalize when it mattered most, leaving nine runners on base. The Spartans scored once in the first on a throwing error, and again in the second on a home run, and took a three-run lead with another run in the sixth.
Wesley was able to get a run in its final at bat on an RBI groundout by Lauren Hoffman, scoring Breanna Hartman who reached on a walk, and advanced to third on a single by Steph Caracozza followed by a fielder's choice off the bat of Morgan Seymour.
Lindsay Siok took the loss in the circle despite allowing just two earned runs on five hits in 6.0 innings while striking out four.
York took a 2-0 lead with a pair of runs in the second but the Wolverines tied it up with single runs in the fourth and fifth innings. Nina Marcano's RBI double in the fourth scored Saunders while Hoffman's single in the fifth drove in Brook Creighton.
The Spartans answered right away with two runs in the fifth and four runs in the sixth to seal the win.
The Wolverines return to action on Monday, March 30 for a 3 pm CAC doubleheader at Penn State Harrisburg.
