Softball falls to Cougars in crosstown double-header

The Becker College softball team lost both games of their double-header at Clark University on Tuesday, falling 3-2 in a heart-breaking nine-inning thriller in the first game before a late rally saw them fall 9-8 in the second.

Becker junior pitcher Samantha Lee (Prospect, Conn. / Woodland) allowed just one earned run in eight and two thirds innings in game one, striking out ten Cougars. Sophomore pitcher Samantha Belenchia (Ansonia, Conn. / Ansonia) struck out seven while accumulating three hits and three RBI at the plate. Junior second baseman Rebecca Carkhuff (Amherst, Mass. / Amherst) added three hits.

Up next for the Becker Hawks, the team travels to WPI on Wednesday for a 4:00 p.m. double-header.
