The Bulldogs Women’s Softball team dropped both games in a CUNYAC doubleheader against Hunter College.
The Hawks shutout Brooklyn in game one with a 14-0 score and completed the sweep in game two with an 11-2 score to walk away from the Roosevelt Courts victorious.
Brooklyn’s struggles continue as it moves to 6-20 overall and a 2-8 CUNYAC record, while the Hawks improve to 12-12 overall and 10-2 in CUNYAC. The Bulldogs will play their next home game on Tuesday when the College of New Rochelle pays a visit to Brooklyn.
Hunter’s starting pitcher, Nicole Guzzone, came out to play in game one, pitching four innings while allowing only one hit from the home team and striking out four batters. Brooklyn’s only hit of the game came from freshman center fielder, Leslie Lima, which was a single. Hunter jumped on Brooklyn in the top of the first inning, scoring two run on two hits. The top of the second inning was a repeat of how things have gone this season for Brooklyn as they allowed six runs in the inning. Come the third inning, Hunter kept piling it on as it scored five more runs which secured its game one win.
At the start of game two, both teams went scoreless in the opening inning, but in the second inning things went south for Brooklyn as the Hawks scored nine runs to start the second. Brooklyn responded with a run of their own as sophomore infielder, Brianna Preston, hit an RBI-drive home that allowed Breanna Maresca to put Brooklyn on the scoreboard. Brooklyn found some life in the fifth inning as Daminska Estime hit a single. She would advance to third on a double by Leslie Lima, who went 2-2 on the afternoon. With two outs, sophomore catcher, Shakira Feliciano, hit an RBI-single allowing Estime to drive home. The late rally by the Bulldogs was short lived as a ground-out ended the game and allowed Hunter to complete the two-game sweep.
