Rain Wins in Non-Conference Action between Geneva & La Roche

Hannah Logan

Beaver Falls, PA – The Geneva College softball team dropped a non-conference game to La Roche College on Thursday, April 27. The La Roche Redhawks took game one in five innings (10-1) after a dominating second inning. Despite leading in game two after four innings (5-1), the game was called due to the weather conditions. The loss moved Geneva’s overall record to 21-14.

La Roche opened the day posting a two-run first inning. Freshman Casey Farkasovsky was able to hit home sophomore Haley Sainato off a single to respond in the bottom of the first. Play continued through wind and rain prominent in the second inning; 2-1. The Redhawks put together a five-run rally through the weather; 7-1. Geneva was unable to answer La Roche. The visitors tabbed three more runs in the third to take the 10-1 short contest. Freshman Bobbie Ann Theiss took the loss for the Golden Tornadoes moving her record to 4-7 on the season.

Game two started out strong for the Golden Tornadoes as they took the commanding early lead, however a storm blew on College Hill, creating too much rain to continue play. Without having completed the necessary innings to earn the win, the game was called with no result.

The Golden Tornadoes will travel to Thiel College tomorrow, Friday April 28 for their final regular season games starting at 3:30 p.m. Geneva will be playing for an appearance in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC) postseason. Geneva will enter the game sitting fourth in the league, Thiel at fifth. Geneva must defeat Thiel in one of the scheduled doubleheader to lock the fourth seed postseason spot.
