Sophomore Maggie Phillips showed her versatility and ability to adjust and play where needed.  She started the season expecting to play right field, but then she moved to first base because of an injury to a teammate.  Against Rahway, she played catcher.  Freshman Victoria Delia took over in right field and moved up to first base for this game.   Freshman Casey Janker got her first start and played well in right field.

Everyone one of the Bulldogs got on base more than once and five players scored three runs.  Left fielder Angelina Cacioppo was four for five including a home run and she had five RBIs and Wilson was three of five and five RBIs.  Phillips was walked four times and that led to three RBIs.  Senior center fielder Marinna Kwinta was one of two and accounted for three RBIs.  Junior shortstop Amanda Lau was three of four; was hit by a pitch and stole a base.  Senior at second base Arianna DeMartino scored three runs.  In her five at bats she walked twice and got two hits.

The Bulldogs scored 22 runs on 14 hits, while Rahway managed three hits and two runs. 

The victory pushes the Bulldog’s record to 3-1 overall and 2-1 in UCC – Mountain.  With the loss Rahway falls to 1-2.
