Game One Box Score

A great day by Alyssa Maiese gave the Iona Gaels a sweep over Drexel Wednesday in New Rochelle, NY.

It was the Alyssa Maiese show over at the Rice Oval Wednesday. Alyssa began the doubleheader by pitching a complete game win over the Dragons, striking out 8 and allowing only one earned run. She also had a hit and scored a run. Allyssa James drove home a pair of runs; Marisa Newman also had a RBI. Katie Jansson was 2 for 2.

Alyssa didn't pitch in game two, but she was certainly a big factor. She hit a homer and a double, driving home 4 runs in the process. Eileen McCann also homered. Deanne Algeo sent two home with a double. Deanne started this game, earning the win, and was relieved by Sarah Jackson in the 4th inning. Drexel put up 3 runs in the top of the 7th inning and threatened to tie the game when Sarah ended it with a strikeout; she finished with 8.

The Gaels pay a visit to Rutgers Thursday before returning to conference play this weekend.
