Softball Defeats Hudson Valley in Fall Ball Action

Softball Defeats Hudson Valley in Fall Ball Action

Timberwolves Softball traveled to Renssalaer Polytechnic for some fall ball action against RPI, St. Rose and Hudson Valley. 

Game one against St. Rose was a duel between the two starting pitchers as inning after inning went by with neither team breaking through. St. Rose had runners on 3rd in two of their innings, but once flied out to the infield and had a runner cut down at the plate in their other scoring opportunity. SUNY ADK had a great scoring chance in the last inning, but had a runner picked off of third base with 1 out to end the threat. The score ended up knotted at 0 when it was called after 7. Amber Bourdeau only gave up 2 hits to the NCAA Division II Golden Knights.

Game two was a more offense centered contest as the Timberwolves were able to defeat Region III rival Hudson Valley behind Liz Richards. The offense poured it on as they scored 6 runs to top the Vikings effort of 5 runs. The victory is a good sign for the regular season when these two teams will meet up with Region III implications.

Game three against host RPI didn't go quite as well as the first two games. RPI was able to score 1 run in the first and 4 total off of starter Hannah Grady before Bailey Hasemann came in to relieve and pitched 2 shutout innings before darkness caused an early end to the fall ball contest. Amber Bourdeau starred on offense with a single, double and the team's only run.
