STONY BROOK, N.Y. -
The Providence College softball team (9-13) defeated Manhattan, 6-0, and lost to Stony Brook, 3-1, at the Stony Brook Invitational on Sun., March 17 in Stony Brook, N.Y. Junior Emily O’Keefe (Southington, Conn.) pitched a no-hitter until the fifth inning in the Friars’ victory over Manhattan.
In its first game of the day, Providence’s first two runs in the first inning against Manhattan were scored off a double from sophomore Kristie Dederick (Camarillo, Calif.) and a single hit by senior Stephanie Kiesel (Ramona, Calif., 2-0). The Friars scored another two runs in the fourth inning when Kiesel’s single brought in Dederick and senior Jessie Bryant (Marlborough, Mass., 4-0). Sophomore Sarah Kitterman (Houston, Texas) singled to bring in the last two runs in the top of the sixth inning (6-0). Dederick finished 2-3 with two runs and one RBI. Bryant also went 2-3 and added one run. Kitterman finished 1-3 with two RBI. O’Keefe pitched her third complete game of the season, allowing three hits and tallying one strikeout in the Friars’ first shutout of the season.
O’Keefe started the Friars’ second game of the day against Stony Brook, but was removed from the game after Stony Brook center fielder Shayla Giosia hit a two-run homerun early in the first inning (2-0). She was replaced by freshman pitcher Kiara Amos (Malden, Mass.). Kiesel doubled to bring in the Friars’ lone-run in the fourth inning (2-1), and the Seawolves tallied one more run in the fifth inning off a sacrifice fly (3-1). Kiesel led the Friars offensively, going 4-5 on the day with one run and four RBI.
The Friars will host the Yale Bulldogs on Wednesday, March 20 in a doubleheader beginning at 2:00 p.m. to open up their home schedule.
