Purchase softball dropped both games of a doubleheader against the College of New Rochelle at home on Tuesday, falling 3-4 in the first game and 3-9 in the second.

Game one:

New Rochelle: 4

Purchase: 3

Kelly Agostini pitched the first game, giving up four runs on eight hits over 6 innings.

Purchase scored 3 runs in the top of the third inning, putting themselves to take an early 2 run lead. As Purchase ended the fourth inning they were still up and their confidence was building.

“I am always confident in my team when we are winning to hold the lead. We know how to put numbers on the board. We try to win every inning. Sadly we ended up falling a little short in the outcome but I never doubted us,” said captain Victoria Capone-Forio.

Capone- Forio was one of the runs scored in the first game. New Rochelle scored two more runs in the fifth and one run in seventh inning, brining the final score to 4-3.

Game two

New Rochelle: 9

Purchase: 3

Cassidy Montes, pitcher of the week for the Skyline Conference, took the mound for the second game against New Rochelle. Montes promptly gave up 4 runs to the visiting Blue Angels in the first, before giving up one in the second and two in the third to put New Rochelle up 7-1.

Capone-Forio scored the only run in the first inning with the help of an RBI from Kelly Hayes.

“It always feels good to make contact and have runners score.  It’s the second best part of the game. It gives me confidence in myself to help my team,” said Hayes.

The Panthers are now at 1–3 overall. Although the team lost they said they look forward to the season ahead of them.

“We prepare by looking at our positives and negatives of past games,” said Hayes “We learn from our mistakes and make them positive. We work on what we can do better at practice, and we talk as a team to see what we can capitalize on and what needs to change.”
