Lady Pioneers Sweep Past FLCC
The Alfred State College softball team swept a pair of games from Finger Lakes CC on Friday. The Lady Pioneers won the opener 8-0 and won the nightcap 1-0 in walk-off fashion. ASC is now 10-18 (7-11 Region III Division III).
Eight different Pioneers collected hits as ASC used a four-run 2nd inning and a three run 5th inning to cruise to the victory. Athena Scavo (Hornell) was 1 for 2 with 2 RBI while Kate Bailey (West Valley) was 1 for 3 with 2 RBI. Natalie Sylvester (Perry) tossed the first four innings allowing just four hits to earn the win.
Neither team could get on the board in the second game until Amber Harding (Fillmore) singled home Angie Depew (Wellsville) with no outs in the bottom of the 7th to complete the sweep. Depew walked to lead off the inning and stole second base. Sylvester collected the lone extra base hit for ASC with a 5th inning double. Alfred was held to just five hits on the day. Pam Rupp (Cattaraugus Little Valley) tossed a complete game gem to earn the win. She allowed just three hits while striking out five.
ASC returns to action on Saturday when they host Tompkins Cortland CC at 1 p.m.
