MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – The Pennsylvania College of Technology softball team lost 14-0 to Eastern University on day three of the 2012 Snowbird Softball Tournament in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The loss drops the team to 1-4 overall. The Wildcats suffered without key players in the game due to injury. “Three of our starters are out due to injury,” said head coach Roger Harris. “Two of those are pitchers so we were only able to get one game in today.” Penn College canceled its second game of the day against SUNY-IT.

Freshman Emily Yoder (Catawissa) pitched all five innings striking out three and giving up five earned. Penn College committed four errors behind her allowing Eastern to capitalize and build a lead.

Yoder hit a one-out triple in the first but the Wildcat offense was not able to get her across the plate. The Eagles scored two in the first and added another in the second. They put together a seven-run fourth to seal the victory and end it early.

The Wildcats totaled four hits in the game with freshmen Stephanie Koleno (Moshannon), Kaseen Woodward (Troy) and Britni Fennell (Conyngham) each notching singles.

Next up, Penn College plays on Thursday, Mar. 7 and takes on Owens College at 9:30 am followed by Olney College at 11:30.
