Softball: Monks & Saints Split Pair of GNAC Games
4/16/23 – Saint Joseph’s College (15-13, 3-1 GNAC) and Emmanuel College (15-13, 6-2 GNAC) split a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) softball doubleheader on Sunday. The Monks opened with a 4-1 triumph and the Saints evened the score with a 1-0 victory in the closing contest.
SAINT JOSEPH’S 4, EMMANUEL 1:
The Monks opened the scoring in the top of the first when junior center fielder Lydia Goodnough (Kennebunkport, Maine) launched a two-run double to center field. Olivia Howe (Arundel, Maine) and Sylvia Foley (Scarborough, Maine) reached base with singles, and both scored on the Goodnough two-bagger.
The Saints scored a run with the help of an SJC error in the bottom of the fourth to make it a 2-1 game, but Howe belted a two-run homer in the top of the fifth to lift the visitors to a 4-1 advantage.
