TAMPA, FLA. - The Providence College softball team (23-28-1, 9-13 BIG EAST) fell in the BIG EAST Softball Tournament Quarterfinals to the #23/25 USF Bulls (41-14, 18-3 BIG EAST), 3-0, on Thursday, May 9 in Tampa, Fla.
Sophomore Shanelle Harrell (Irvine, Calif.) registered the first hit of the game with a base hit to left field in the top of the second inning. Junior Marie Flego (Little Silver, N.J.) would draw a walk in the next at-bat but both runners would be left stranded.
In the top of fourth, senior Stephanie Kiesel (Ramona, Calif.) was hit by a pitch with one out and junior Lauren Paiva (Middletown, R.I.) was brought in to pinch run. Sophomore Kristie Dederick (Camarillo, Calif.) would reach base on an infield single, moving Paiva over to second base, but the Friars half-inning would end before any runs would cross the plate. The Bulls would collect their first hit of the game against senior Corinne Clauss (Davie, Fla.) in the bottom of the fourth but no runs were scored. Through four innings Clauss allowed only three base runners (two walks, one hit) while striking out four batters.
With one out in the top of the sixth, senior Jessie Bryant (Marlborough, Mass.) reached first after a hard hit ball to the shortstop bounced off her glove and into the outfield. Kiesel would replace Bryant at first after reaching on a fielder's choice and move to second following a walk to Harrell, but both runners would be left stranded. The Bulls would score all three runs in the bottom of the sixth after a bases loaded single would bring in two runs and a bunt would bring in the third run of the inning.
Clauss would finish the game allowing three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out five batters.
Junior Sara Nevins allowed only three hits while walking two and striking out nine in six innings for USF. Lindsey Richardson would pick up the save for the Bulls.
