SPRINGFIELD, NJ - The Jonathan Dayton Softball team opened the season on a very chilly and cloudy Saturday morning with a 2-1 loss to Roselle Park.

Coach Pamela de la Flave said, "It is always a good game when we play Roselle Park, but we didn't play to our potential. After the game we discussed what we need to do moving forward if we want to see better results. We will learn from this and we are going to prep next week for Benedictine on Tuesday." 

The game was originally scheduled to be played at Roselle Park, but because of the heavy rains preceding the game, the decision was decided to play the game on Dayton's turf field.   The field still had puddles around it and the temperature at the start of the game was around 40 degrees.  That seemed to chill the bats of the teams as each mustered just four hits.

The Bulldogs scored their lone run in the second inning giving them a lead they would hold until the fifth inning.  Junior shortstop Amanda Lau scored the run.   

Roselle Park scored in the fifth inning and the sixth inning.  One of the runs was unearned.

Dayton's pitcher junior Holly Davis pitched a complete game in the loss.  She gave up four hits and two runs, of which just one was earned.  Davis struck out eleven and walked none.  

Next week, Dayton has three games.  They play 4 p.m. Tuesday at Benedictine High School followed by two home games.  On Thursday they face David Brearley at 4 p.m. and on Saturday they face Scotch Plains-Fanwood at 4 p.m.
