Box Score - Gm1
Box Score - Gm2

            LORETTO, PA  --  Junior Stacy Scofield (Stewartstown, PA/Kennard-Dale) belted a home run and tossed a five-inning two-hitter to lead Saint Francis (24-22, 10-9 NEC) to a 13-5 victory over Fairleigh Dickinson (8-23, 6-16 NEC) in the first game of a Northeast Conference doubleheader.   FDU salvaged a split with the Red Flash, winning the second game, 4-2.

            Scofield turned in a dominating performance in game one, allowing just two hits while striking out seven to improve to 13-8 on the season.  At the plate, the junior slugger opened the floodgates in a seven-run fourth inning for the Flash, drilling a three-run home run.

            Senior thirdbaseman Jen Leibowitz (Harleysville, PA/Souderton) also homered in the first game for Saint Francis, belting a two-run shot in the third inning.  It was Leibowitz’s seventh home run of the season.  Senior firstbaseman Brooke Keiper (Johnstown, PA/Johnstown) was also one of the catalysts in the victory, going four-for-four with two doubles, three runs scored and two RBI.

            The Knights bounced back in game two, halting a 10-game losing streak.  Freshman pitcher Nicole Farrissey (Paramus, NJ/Paramus) tossed a complete-game five-hitter to improve to 4-10.  The righthander struck out two and walked one.  Senior Cindi Ciotti (Minersville, PA/ Minersville) took the loss for the Red Flash to slip to 11-12.  Ciotti gave up four runs on 10 hits.

            Sophomores Caroline Kovach (Tinton Falls, NJ/Monmouth) and Maureen O’Callahan (Barnegat, NJ/Southern Regional) each connected on solo home runs in the second game for Fairleigh Dickinson.  Scofield hit another home run in game two and Red Flash senior catcher Jamie Krusinsky (Shenandoah, PA/Shenandoah) connected on her sixth home run of the season in the nightcap.

            Fairleigh Dickinson will close out the regular season on Friday, April 26th with a non-conference doubleheader at St. Peter's, beginning at 4pm.
