Box Score

Sarah Minice went toe to toe with one of the nation's top pitchers, but the Stags lost 1-0 to UMass Thursday in Amherst, MA.

Sarah Minice proved again she can throw with the best of them, this time going up against Sara Plourde of UMass, a previous National Player Of The Week honoree. Sarah struck out 9 today, and did not allowed an earned run. The only run of the game was scored in the UMass 4th inning. An error by shortstop Laura Carta proved costly, leading to a 2 out wild pitch that won the game for the Minutewomen. Sara Plourde struck out 12, allowing only 2 hits, one each by Kristen Filicia and Tiffany Lawson. Even with the loss, Sarah Minice improved her conference leading ERA. The Stags continue MAAC play Saturday when they travel to Rider.
