CALDWELL, NJ - The Caldwell College softball team defeated Felician College, 10-1 in five innings, in the first game of a Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference doubleheader Monday afternoon at Caldwell Field. The second game was tied, 1-1 in the top of the third when the game was called due to rain. The Cougars improve to 20-2 overall and 10-1 in league play, while the Golden Falcons fall to 11-15, 3-8 CACC.

Game 1
Junior Alyssa Calderon (Fontana, CA / Etiwanda) got things started for Caldwell in the bottom of the first inning with a two-run double that scored junior Kristen Knorr (Monroeville, NJ/Delsea Reg.) and sophomore Brielle Reighn (Runnemeade, NJ / Triton Regional). Then in the second, sophomore Caitlin McCready (Jupiter, FL / Dwyer) singled home freshman Amy Hickman (Jackson, NJ / Jackson Liberty) and a sacrifice fly from Reighn plated freshman Gracie Sullivan (Elmhurst, IL / York) for a 4-0 lead. Sullivan lined a double to left center in the third that drove home Hickman to extend the lead to 5-0.

Three more runs in the bottom of the fourth inning put Caldwell ahead, 8-0. Knorr stole home on a double steal, junior Megan Fryday (San Marcos, CA / Mission Hills) singled home freshman Rebecca Welch (Carteret, NJ / Carteret), and senior Nicole Velardi (Belleville, NJ / Belleville) hit a double that plated Fryday in the inning. Halei Van Dyke led off the top of the fifth with a solo home run to make the score 8-1. In the bottom of the fifth, senior Jacklyn Bates (Waterloo, NY / Waterloo) led off with a double, then freshman Lauren Frye (Jupiter, FL / Jupiter) followed with a home run off the left-field foul pole to end the game.

Fryday and Sullivan each had two hits to lead the Cougar offense. Sophomore pitcher Amber Padilla (Chino, CA / Pomona Catholic) scattered four hits and struck out four in five innings to improve to 7-2.
