Falcons swept; softball stays hot: PHOTOS

FAIRMONT — Shepherd took both games from Fairmont State in WVIAC doubleheader on Saturday afternoon at Mary Lou Retton Park. The Rams blanked FSU in game one, 5-0, and then got the offense rolling in an 11-4 victory in game two.

The Falcons slipped to 14-17 overall and 10-11 in WVIAC play.

In the first game, Shepherd’s Paul Hvozdovic quieted the Fairmont State offense allowing just four hits in a 5-0 complete game shutout victory over the Falcons. Hvozdovic struck out six and walked none, and he didn’t allow a Falcon to reach base after the third inning setting down the last 13 in a row.

Tyler Kincaid took the loss for Fairmont State giving up five runs (four earned) on nine hits with two walks and a strikeout through 6.1 innings. Nick Opferman registered the final two outs for the Falcons in relief.

FSU closes the regular season with 11 straight road games, the first coming Wednesday in a doubleheader versus Charleston that gets under way at 1 p.m.

Falcons win two at home


Fairmont State picked up a pair of conference victories over Wheeling Jesuit on Saturday at Duvall-Rosier Field.

FSU picked up a 4-2 victory in game one and Sarah Parsons hit a walk-off RBI double in the seventh inning of game two to wrap up the 4-3 victory and sweep for the Falcons.

The victories improve the Falcons to 22-7 overall and 10-2 in the WVIAC. The Cardinals slip to 10-20 and 3-8 in league play.

Fairmont State would respond to an early 2-0 deficit with an RBI single by Parsons in the third. Holly Frampton followed it up with a two-run home run to give the Falcons a 3-2 advantage. Terri Lynn Wolf added a solo shot to left field in the bottom of the sixth.

Chelsea Cobb (12-3) pitched a complete game for the Falcons, giving up just two runs on five hits and striking out five. Ashley Nichols (6-10) threw a complete game for the Cardinals.

The FSU offense started quickly in game two after Courtney Iacobacci led off the bottom of the first with a triple to left field. Parsons would record an RBI on a sacrifice fly to give FSU a 1-0 advantage.

Nikki Nuzum and the FSU defense stranded WJU runners in the top of the sixth and seventh innings to give the Falcons a chance to win late. Iacobacci led off the bottom of the seventh with a double to set up the game-winning RBI by Parsons.

Nuzum (8-3) pitched a complete game for FSU, giving up five hits and no earned runs. Erika Jusko (1-3) was charged with the loss after giving up 11 hits and just two earned runs.

FSU hosts a doubleheader at 2 p.m. today against West Liberty. The Falcons will honor five seniors prior to the first game.
