Lady Falcons Sweep Sunday Twin-Bill

Dunmore, PA – The Lackawanna College softball team took both games of its Sunday doubleheader, beating Lehigh Carbon Community College 7-0 in the opener and 9-6 in the night cap.

In game one, Lackawanna used a two run first inning and the pitching of Cynthia Petrucci to propel the Lady Falcons to its 7-0 victory. Although they also scored one in the third and four more in the fourth, those runs proved to be unneeded, as Petrucci hurled a seven inning two hit shutout. She also K'd six in her second win of the year.

Hitting stars for the Falcons were Bethany Mickavicz with two hits in two at bats; and, Colleen Walsh with one hit and three Runs Batted In.

In the next contest, Lackawanna and LCCC played a back and forth game which finally went Lackawanna's way in the bottom of the sixth when they scored the final four runs of the game.  The contest started with Lehigh Carbon scoring three in the top of the first, only to see Lackawanna bounce back with a run in the bottom of the first and two more in the third. Tied at three, LCCC scored three more in the top of the fourth. Again the Lady Falcons bounce back with two in the bottom of the fourth and the winning four runs in the sixth.

A tired Petrucci claimed her third victory of the season as she hurled seven innings while yielding six runs on eleven hits. Only four of those runs were earned. She also added six strikeouts which gave a total of twelve on the day.

The top hitting performances were contributed by Amanda Ogozaley, Darrian Johnson, Michaela Hedgin and Walsh. Orgozaly went two for four with a single and double, Johnson doubled and homered in four at bats; Hedglin singled and doubled in her three plate appearances; while Walsh in four attempts singled, doubled and tripled. Both Hedglin and Wash led the team in RBIs with two each.
