The MVCC Lady Hawks dropped two close games to SUNY Jefferson on Thursday afternoon.
Game 1: SUNY Jefferson 4 MVCC 2
In game one, a huge error allowed Jefferson to score all four runs they needed to defeat MVCC 4-2. Hannah Wasco gave up three hits and one earned run in seven innings of work. Rome's Courtney Fiorenza went 3-4 and Sarah Dohrn 2-3 at the plate.
Game 2: SUNY Jefferson 8 MVCC 7 (8 innings)
Game two saw the Hawks jump on the scoreboard first in the top of the second inning. Fielding miscues and a bit of misfortune put MV behind 4-1 after two innings. The bats woke up in the top of the third as MVCC scored 6 runs to take a 7-4 lead. SUNY Jefferson chipped away in the 5th, 6th and 7th innings by tacking on a run and tying it up in the bottom of the 7th. MV failed to score in the top of the 8th as the Cannoneers plated the game winner in the home half of the 8th.
MVCC falls to 6-20 on the season and host Cayuga CC on Saturday at 1pm and 3pm.
