PSC Drops One-Run Game to WCSU in LEC

May 5th, 1999 by Adam

DANBURY, Conn. – The underdog Plymouth State College softball team battled favored Western Connecticut pitch for pitch Wednesday afternoon, but in the
end the Colonials held on for a 2-1 victory at Westside Field, eliminating PSC from the Little East Conference Tournament.

PSC, the sixth seed in the tourney, got a fourth-inning solo home run from senior Kerry Bickford (Belmont, NH), but could not push across the tying run and dropped its ninth
one-run game of the season.

Plymouth State completes the campaign with an 11-26 overall record under first-year coach Moira Long, while third-seeded WCSU moves on with a 26-16 mark. The Panthers
were eliminated in the first round of the LEC Tourney last spring at Keene State, 5-0.

Junior Jen Moulton (Bow, NH) pitched a solid game for PSC, allowing two runs on five hits and four walks, while striking out three. She finishes the season with a 6-9 mark, a
2.77 earned run average, and a single-season school record 58 strikeouts.

Western Connecticut got a strong pitching performance from junior Kate Manning (Randolph, MA). She allowed just four hits, striking out eight and walking none to improve to
16-10 on the season.

The Colonials got on the board in the second inning when Jennifer Travis (East Haddam, CT) plated Rebecca Tabellione (Southington, CT) on a sacrifice fly. It went to 2-0 when
Julie Perrelli (Ridgefield, CT) hit an RBI single to right. Perrelli and Joelle DelleVolpe (Bellville, NJ) each went 2-for-2 for the winners.

Bickford’s home run, her second of the season, was one of her two hits. Moulton added a hit for PSC, as did junior first baseman Sara Wormwood (Rutland, VT).

WCSU moves on to the double-elimination tournament this weekend at top-seeded Keene State, along with KSC, #2 seeded Southern Maine, and #5 seeded Eastern
Connecticut. In Wednesday’s other first-round games, Keene State eliminated #8 UMass Boston, 15-0, Southern Maine ousted #7 UMass Dartmouth, 3-0, and Eastern Conn. upset #4
seeded Rhode Island College, 1-0.
