PARAMUS, NJ - An off day at the plate and errors plagued Montgomery's Softball team as the Mustangs were swept by Bergen Community College in a Region XIX doubleheader on Sunday afternoon. The Bulldogs won the first game, 16-0, and followed up with a 15-2 victory.
Montgomery opened Game 2 with a first inning run thanks to a Bergen error. However, the Bulldogs responded with 4 runs in the home half of the first. They tacked on 5 runs in the second and 4 more in the third in opening up a commanding 13-1 lead.
Naomi Jasienski (0-5) allowed 10 earned runs on 15 hits, including a solo home run. She surrendered eight walks and uncorked a pair of wild pitches.
Hagel went 2 for 3 with a run scored. Linda Sobeck was 3 for 3, while Antoinette Breccia added a multiple hit effort with a 2 for 3 effort at the plate. Elrahjaoui finished 1 for 2 with a single and a stolen base.
In the opener, Sobeck and Co. limited the Bulldogs to four runs through three innings. Offensively, however, Montgomery had little success at the plate outside of a double by Hagel.
Bergen blew the game open with a 12-run fourth inning. Bulldogs' pitcher Linzi Reginald and catcher Danielle Sibilio each homered and drove in a combined 11 RBI. On the mound Reginald allowed just four hits and yielded a pair of walks while striking out 10.
Sobeck was charged with 12 earned runs on 11 hits. She walked five and failed to record a strikeout.
Montgomery is back in action Tuesday afternoon at 3:30 pm when they host EPAC rival Northampton Community College.
