Goldey-Beacom ended its play in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference with a pair of losses, 11-1 and 9-1, at Dominican (NY) in Orangeburg, NY.
Things began real well for the Lightning in the top of the first inning when junior Alivia Schoff (Colora, MD) blasted a solo home run for her first long ball of the season and fourth career.
The Chargers grabbed their first lead in the bottom of the frame when Jillian Regan launched a two-run homer for a 2-1 margin.
Dominican then scored five times in the last of the second for a 7-1 lead. Ariana Trembone had a sacrifice that resulted in a run, Shannon Haukup lined an RBI single, Regan reached on an error that allowed another run, Shannon Truppi had a run-scoring single and Jacqueline Gonzalez got an RBI groundout.
Regan closed with three RBI and Alyssa Schwed amassed three hits for the Chargers. Madison Dove (12-6) struck out five over three innings, yielding one run and three hits.
Sophomore Charlee King (New Castle, DE/Hodgson Vo-Tech) had two hits for GBC. Freshman Natalie Mickles (Dingmans Ferry, PA) gave up 11 runs – eight earned – and 11 hits over four innings.
Goldey-Beacom in game two cut into a 3-0 deficit as Schoff’s grounder was misplayed, allowing freshman Kelsey Brandle (Bethlehem, PA) to score for a two-run contest.
But the Chargers plated five runs in the fourth inning, keyed by Haukap’s three-run homer, for an 8-1 game. Truppi had an RBI single later in the frame and Anne Shiebler added a run-scoring single.
Dominican ended things in the bottom of the fifth when Schwed blasted a solo homer, ending a day in which she went 7-for-8 in the doubleheader and 4-for-4 in game two.
Jenna Maska (13-5) allowed just an unearned run and four hits over five innings for the Chargers (27-17, 19-5 CACC). Truppi ended 3-for-3.
Freshman Kylie Doyle (Tower City, PA) surrendered nine runs – seven earned – and 13 hits over 4 2/3 innings for the Lightning (5-28-1, 3-23).
