Clermont, Fla.-The University of Bridgeport softball team wrapped up their 2012 season-opening Spring Trip to Florida with a 5-4 record after dropping two tough contests on Friday evening.
The Purple Knights opened action on Friday with a 1-0 loss to Millersville University on an unearned run in the bottom of the eighth inning. The loss spoiled a fine outing by sophomore Tiffany Irrera (Brooklyn, N.Y.) who suffered her first loss of the season pitching a complete game in which she allowed only two hits. She struck out three and walked only one batter in the game.
Bridgeport wrapped play on Friday night with a 7-3 loss against Franklin Pierce in the Ravens' 2012 season opener.
UB now heads back to Connecticut, and the Purple Knights will open this season's home schedule at DeLuca Field in Stratford on Monday, March 19 when they host Bloomfield College. Action begins at 3:00 p.m.
