Yonkers, N.Y. – The College of Mount Saint Vincent Softball team was downed in a Skyline doubleheader Sunday afternoon by Farmingdale St. The Rams won game one 12-0 before taking the second game of the set by a score of 19-0. The Mount had three players record base hits in the opener.

Farmingdale got off to a fast start in game one when Kaitlin Keenan drilled the first pitch of the game out for a home run. The Rams would add five more runs in the inning to take a 6-0 lead before the Dolphins came to bat. Farmingdale St. finished game one with five home runs and 16 hits.

The Dolphins did not have a player reach base until Nora Chivelly (Suffern, N.Y.) singled to lead off the third inning. The Mount finished with just three hits in game one with Dana McGuire (Setauket, N.Y.) and Karissa Koerner (Bay Shore, N.Y.) picking up singles in the fourth inning.

Megan Gonzalez (Fishers, Ind.) took the loss for the Mount, working 5.0 innings. Hope Zino picked up the win for the Rams after also working 5.0 innings. She allowed just the three singles in the game and fanned seven Dolphins.

Farmingdale started quickly again in game two, taking a 1-0 lead before the Mount came to bat. The run crossed on an RBI single from Nicole Farber with one out in the frame. The Rams went on to score 10 times in the second inning, with each player crossing with at least one run.

The Rams again showed off their power in game two with two more home runs, including a second inning grand slam from Arielle Morelli. The Dolphins lone hit of the contest came on a Katie Shea (Flushing, N.Y.) single in the third inning.

Shea took the loss for the Mount in the five inning contest, working the complete game. Heather Buckshaw picked up the win for Farmingdale St., striking out four. Neither Farmingdale St. pitcher walked a batter on the afternoon.

The sweep drops Mount Saint Vincent to 5-8 overall on the season and to 1-7 in Skyline Conference play. The Dolphins will be back in action again on Monday when they host New Rochelle. First pitch for the twinbill is set for 3:30 p.m.
