Softbll Swept By St. Francis (PA)

April 24, 2007
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington Colonials (19-22) dropped their non-conference doubleheader to the St. Francis Red Flash (15-25) on Tuesday afternoon at the Mount Vernon Complex. The Red Flash took the first game, 4-3, while also defeating GW, 6-2 in the second.
The Colonials got solo home runs by juniors Colleen Kegler (Yardley, PA/Pennsbury) and Jackie Yaniga (Miami, FL/Southwest Miami) in the opener, but it was not enough to get the Colonials to rally against the Red Flash. Yaniga went 2-2 in the opener, while junior Hilary King (Canal Winchester, OH/Pickerington North) also added two hits.
Freshman Amanda Gabriel (Fullerton, CA/Sunny Hills) got the loss for GW despite giving up just three earned runs on nine in six innings. Gabriel also struck out five and walked two. The right-hander keeps adding to her single season record for innings pitched and is now 11-8 on the season.
Laura Caldwell got the win for St. Francis, improving her record to 10-9 on the year.
The Red Flash got to junior Katie Miller (Manteo, NC/Manteo) early and often in game two, forcing Miller out of the game after 1.2 innings. Miller (2-9) allowed five earned runs on three hits while walking four. Junior Lisa Cohen (Langhorne, PA/Neshaminy) pitched 5.1 innings of one run, two hit ball in relief.
Yaniga collected another two hits in the second game, including a double and a run scored on a wild pitch. Sophomore Tori Sensi (Skillman, NJ/Montgomery) also added two hits for GW. Senior Elana Meyers (Douglasville, GA/Lithia Springs) scored the other run for the Colonials, touching the plate on a wild pitch as well.
Samantha Jelen (1-3) picked up the win, in a complete game for the Red Flash.
The Colonials will travel to Rhode Island and Massachusetts to take on the Rams and Minutemen in pivotal conference games. GW will be at Rhode Island on Friday, April 27, at 2:00 pm, and Saturday, April 28, at 12:00 pm. The Colonials will battle Massachusetts on Sunday, April 29, in a 12:00 pm doubleheader.
