Recap: Mustangs Overwhelmed in DH Defeat At Bergen

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.

The Mustangs scored their second run in the fourth thanks again to an error. Emma Hagel and Hiba Elrahjaoui scored for Montgomery, which left nine baserunners stranded for the game.

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.
