Softball: Kayla Stickley's homer helps PSC split with Chesapeake

KEYSER, W.Va. — Kayla Stickley blasted a home run and finished with 5 RBIs to lead Potomac State to at 13-2, five-inning victory over Chesapeake in the second game of a doubleheader Sunday afternoon at PSC.

Chesapeake won the opener, 2-0.

Stickley’s home run was part of a nine-run second inning that followed a four-run first. She also had a base hit and scored twice. Megan Newcomb had a base hit, was walked twice and scored twice as the Catamounts had seven hits and took advantage of several Chesapeake walks.

Jordyn Munson got the win with two strikeouts and gave up two walks and two earned runs in the top of the first inning to Alyssa Kendall who had an RBI single and Cat Ramagnano walked and later scored.

In the first game, Chesapeake (14-10) scored two unearned runs in the top of the third inning and Megan Joiner and the Skipjacks defense made them hold up. Joiner finished with a five-hitter and Potomac State’s Makenah Harrington had a six-hitter. Both pitchers went the distance and only had one strikeout.

Five Chesapeake players had base hits and Munson belted two singles and Kadi Cosgrove doubled for the Catamounts.

Potomac State (13-9) will play a “road” doubleheader today against Allegany College of Maryland on the Catamounts field beginning at 3 p.m.
