Wayne, NJ| The St. Joseph's College (L.I.) softball team took a pair of road defeats, 9-0 and 12-5, to William Paterson University in a non-conference doubleheader on Thursday evening.
The losses send the Golden Eagles to 6-8 overall on the year as the Pioneers improve to 13-3.
Paterson 9, SJC 0 (5 innings)
The Pioneers scored seven of their nine runs in the second inning and capped off the game's scoring in the third inning when Vanessa Archibold (2-for-3) singled up the middle and scored a pair of runners.
Paterson 12, SJC 5
SJC opened the scoring in the first inning when sophomore Lindsey Ness (2-for-4) singled to left center and scored freshman Jenna DeFina (1-0).
Paterson responded with two runs in the bottom of the first and expanded it lead to five runs (6-1) in a four-run second.
Three runs for the guests in the top of the third--RBI's from Grau (1-for-4), sophomore Kassandra Tibbetts (2-for-4) and junior Ashley Accardi(1-for-2)--brought the game to within two runs (6-4), but it would be the closest SJC got to tying the game.
The Golden Eagles return to action on Saturday, March 30 when they visit Sarah Lawrence College for a Skyline Conference doubleheader beginning at 9:30 am.
