Painesville, OH – Lake Erie College took game one 6-0 before Mother Nature rained on the Storm’s chances of a sweep over Hilbert College in game two of a doubleheader. Wednesday’s second game was called in the top of the fifth inning with the host Storm up 10-2 with the Hawks coming to bat. A tentative date of April 21st has been scheduled to serve as a make up date with play to resume at 4:00 PM in Painesville, OH.

In the first game, LEC held a 1-0 lead going into the fourth inning when Sarah Miller blasted a solo home run to give the Storm a 2-0 lead. Three more runs came in the fifth and another in the sixth as the Hawks failed to produce an offensive punch. LEC’s Ashley Johnson pitched the win for the Storm, allowing one hit and striking out six in the shutout. Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) led the Hawks with a double while Meghan Gollaher (Rochester, NY/Spencerport) was charged with the loss.

Hilbert is scheduled to play at home on Saturday, August 15th against Penn State Altoona in a 1:00 PM conference doubleheader.
