The Boston College softball team went 1-3 this weekend, losing its first game to Jacksonville University 4-0 on Friday, winning against the University of North Florida in their first game of a doubleheader 2-0 and losing 3-1 in their second game on Saturday, and then falling 3-2 to Jacksonville University on Sunday to wrap up their weekend.

The Eagles were supposed to face Jacksonville in a doubleheader on Friday but the game was called at the top of the seventh inning of the first game due to inclement weather. The second game of the doubleheader was canceled. BC starter, Susannah Anderson, allowed only one run with six strikeouts in 4 innings, and their best scoring chance came in the fifth inning.

On Saturday, the Eagles split their doubleheader with the University of North Florida. They won 2-0 in the first game as Susannah Anderson tossed a complete shutout. Jenna Ergle scored BC’s first run at the top of the second inning, and Ellie Mataya gave BC a 2-0 lead at the top of the third. Anderson then retired 14 straight batters. In the second game, UNF took a 3-0 lead after five innings of play before Djhane Valido picked up a hit to bring Kamryn Warman in to cut the lead to 3-1. They got extremely close to tying the game up at the top of the seventh, but were unable to do so.

In the last game of the weekend, BC came up just short of a victory against Jacksonville University, falling 3-2. Jacksonville took a 2-0 lead after three innings played, before Jules Trevino put BC on the board in the fourth inning. However Jacksonville was able to respond quickly after, putting the Eagles down 3-1. Mataya later scored to make it 3-2, but it wasn’t enough as the Eagles were unable to complete the comeback and dropped to 1-3 on the season.

BC is back on the diamond Wednesday at NC State, with first pitch set for 1PM.
