Lulias scored two of the Knights three runs
Softaball Falls to Widener

April 24, 2008

Box Score

Aston, PA- The Neumann College softball team was not able to get their chemistry together Wednesday in a non-conference match up with Widener University. Although the team  was able to string together 15 hits, they only came up with 3 runs on the losses.  The losses push Neumann to 21-11 overall.

Both games were seemingly even pitching battles. In game one, both teams got on the board on the first inning with one run each. Gabby Lulias got on board first for the Knights with a double and was sent home later in the inning on a Jen Goslin single.

Widener went up three in the third giving them a 4-1 edge on the Knights. Neumann tried to answer  the call but were only able to gain one run in the third. Lulias got to first this time on a single and was sent home when Cailtlin Hanrahan singled.  Widener added two more in the fourth to push the margin to 6-2.

Neumann tried to put together another scoring drive in the fifth inning but only came up with their final run of the day. Wideners offense kept the Knights at bay for the rest of the inning putting the final score at 6-3.

In game two, the Knights were only able to steal three hits from the Pride and was kept scoreless by solid pitching from Widener's Molly Meyer.

Kimberly Kirkpatrick was left on base in the second after she blasted a line-drive double to right center. Lauren Gallagher got on board in the second for the Knights on a single but was caught stealing. Deanna Christy singled in the fifth but was left on base after Kirkpatrick flied out to left field.

Stephanie D'Ortone held things together for the Knights as both sides were scoreless until Widener got their bats swinging in the sixth. Between the sixth and seventh innings, the Pride gathered nine runs and held the Knights off once again leaving the final score 9-0.

Neumann looks to recover from the losses when they face Centenary College in PAC action on Saturday, April 26, 2008 when they honor their seniors for a 1:00p.m. start.
