Flushing, N.Y.-It was a tough Saturday afternoon in New York City for the University of Bridgeport softball team, as the Purple Knights lost both games of an East Coast Conference doubleheader versus Queens (N.Y.) College, dropping game one, 10-7, and falling in game two, 2-1. The two losses drop UB's season record to 16-17, and the Purple Knights are now 5-9 in conference play. QC is now 9-11 overall and 6-10 in the ECC.
In game one, UB scored a run in the top of the first inning, but the host Knights would score nine runs over the next three innings. Bridgeport scored six runs in the top of the fourth to cut the deficit to 9-7, but Queens would go on to post the 10-7 victory.
In game two, freshman Allison Luzzi (East Haven, Conn.) had two of her team's eight hits, but UB was frustrated on offense scoring only one run on a QC error and leaving eight runners on base.
Up next, the UB softball team will look to get back in the win column on Monday afternoon when the Purple Knights step out of conference play hosting Holy Family University. Game time is Seaside Park is set for 2:30 p.m.
