Catholic Softball Falls at No. 7 Moravian

WASHINGTON – The Catholic University of America women's softball traveled to take on the No. 7 team in the country on Sunday afternoon but fell in a Landmark doubleheader at Moravian, 1-0, 5-0.

Pitching dominated both games as Catholic's freshman duo of Claire Sturek and Sabrina Scott combined to limit the Greyhounds to just four hits and just one run but Moravian countered as Jesse Novak held the Cardinals to just one hit.

The scoreless game continued into the sixth inning where the Greyhounds got a RBI single from Jean Markovic to take the game-one win.

Game two only saw seven combined hits with the Cards getting one each from the bats of sophomore Rebecca Marks, senior Molly MacNeill and freshman Marissa Wimmer.

Catholic was once again held off the board however as Amanda Carisone improved to 17-1 as she went for the complete game.

Sophomore Kelly Lynch allowed just one earned run and four hits over 5.2 innings but five Cardinal errors allowed four other runs to come across.

The losses snap a seven-game win streak for Catholic but the Cards remain in the No. 3 spot in the Landmark standings and face off against the No. 4 Juniata Eagles in its final conference series this Thursday.
