Lady Falcons Drop Double Header to Mitchell College

New London, CT - The Albertus Magnus Lady Falcons dropped a Double Header to host Mitchell College on Wednesday afternoon 8-0 and 10-4.  Game one saw the Lady Falcons' defense falter resulting in the 8-0 loss.  Game two was a much different story as Mitchell took a 1-0 lead in the second inning when Krolikowski scored on a wild pitch. The Mariners added three runs in the third behind RBI singles from Burke, Krolikowski and Reynolds to increase the margin to 4-0.  The Lady Falcons struck back with four runs in the fifth inning to tie things up. Bria Szymanski (Wallingford, CT) put Albertus Magnus on the board with a double that scored two runs, and Samantha Gigliotti (Wolcott, CT) followed with an RBI single to cut the deficit to 4-3. The Falcons tied the game on a ground out by DJ Figueroa (Bridgeport, CT) that scored Gigliotti from third.  The Lady Falcons simply couldn't hold on as the Mariners promptly responded with six runs in their half of the fifth.  Catherine Sieff North Haven, CT) got the starting nod again for the Falcons and gave up 10 runs (four earned) on seven hits. She struck out eight and walked three in 6.0 innings of work.  The Lady Falcons look to rebound Friday as they travel to Newton, MA to face GNAC opponent Mount Ida College at 3:00 pm.
