Feb. 26, 2010
IRVINGTON, VA - The Colonials headed south on Friday morning and played their first designated home game and defeated the Coppin State Eagles 11-1. The game was played at the Dream Field in Irvington, VA as Barcroft Park was unable to be ready in time due to the inclement weather in the Washington, DC area.
Junior Eric Cantrell (1-0) made his second start and threw six shutout innings and struck out 12. Both teams battled heavy wins on the day and temperatures that dipped to 30 degrees at the end of the game.
The offense also came alive in the contest and redshirt senior Chris Luick hit the first home run of the season for the Colonials and also recorded a double in going 2-4 on the day. Seniors Chris Holland and Curtis Eward also got three hits on the day, which included Eward's first home run of the season in the fifth inning. Holland also scored three runs in the contest to lead the team. Senior Tom Zebroski also recorded two hits and also scored twice.
The Colonials will return to the field Saturday for a doubleheader against the same Eagle team.
