The Alfred State College softball team fell 11-5 and 8-0 to Corning CC in their regular season home finale.  The losses were the first this season at home and drop ASC to 10-14 (7-10 Region III Division III).

Corning jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first game before ASC plated four runs in the 4th to cut it to 6-4.  The Barons responded with three in the 5th and two in 7th to secure the victory.  Charise Nankivell (Hornell) was 2 for 4 with a RBI, Angie Depew (Wellsville) was 2 for 4, and Heather Gerace (Avon) drove home two in the four-run 4th.
