Tomcat Offense Proves to be Too Much for Geneva; Season Ends in a Sweep


Despite a solid effort in both games, Geneva lost both games of the double header to Thiel College on Friday, April 28 (9-7 and 10-3) to close their 2017 season. The pair of losses brings the Golden Tornadoes’ record to 21-16, 10-8 in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference.

Geneva first crossed the home plate in the second inning when April Lude’s (Canfield, OH/Western Reserve) double to center field was enough to bring Ashley Grow (Beaver, OH/Waverly) home creating the 1-2 score after Thiel’s two run first inning.

The Golden Tornadoes exploded in the fifth as they were able to earn six more runs and gain the lead for the first time of the day, 7-5. The lead didn’t hold for long as the Tomcats earned one more run in the bottom of the fifth before closing out the scoring of the game with a three run inning in the bottom of the sixth creating the final 9-7 score.

Game two started off strong for the Golden Tornadoes with Casey Farkosovsky (Beaver, PA/Beaver) sending a sac fly out to center field to bring Haley Sainato (New Castle, PA/Mohawk) home in the top of the first. Grow soon followed with a double to center field which brought second baseman Laura Innocenzi (Cortland, OH/Lakeview) home for the 2-0 lead. Clara Sevy’s (Sykesville, MD/Chapelgate Christian) walk with the bases loaded brought Grow over the plate to give Geneva the 3-0 lead heading into the bottom of the firsts.

Geneva was unable to make any more headway in the game and could not combat Thiel’s 10 runs to bring the 10-3 game to a close.

After four innings of work on the mound, Farkosovsky was forced to take the loss, finishing with a two strikeouts and an 8.0 ERA.

The two loss ends the 2017 season for the Golden Tornadoes with a fifth place finish in the PAC.
