Bethel Softball Falls to USF in Final Home Doubleheader

In their final appearance on their home softball diamond, BC softball struggled at the plate and were blanked in back-to-back contests against the Cougars of Saint Francis. The losses drop BC to 2-41 on the season while USF improves to 17-21 on their campaign.

The Pilots stayed within striking distance through five frames in the opener as BC’s hurler Danica Mast allowed just three runs on six hits. However, trailing 3-0, the Pilots spotted the visiting Cougars six hits that turned into five runs in the top of the sixth, which put BC in danger of being run-ruled, down 8-0. In their final plate appearance, the Pilots were retired in order, and USF closed the contest in six complete innings 8-0.

A second solid pitching performance by Rachel Nadjek in the nightcap put the Pilots in solid position to compete, but the BC bats were silenced. The Pilots landed just two hits off USF’s Katy Guebard who was nearly perfect by giving out no free passes and fanning one. The Cougar’s three runs were aided by a trio of Bethel miscues, and the seven-inning battle ended in favor of USF 3-0.

The Pilots will return to action tomorrow on a road trip to Upland, Indiana, to face the Trojans of Taylor University at 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
