Glory get caught in Riptide

CHANTILLY, VA - After not allowing a runner past second base in the season opener, three errors proved costly for the Glory who evened out their season at 1-1 with a 6-2 loss to the New England Riptide Friday night at the Westfield Softball Complex.
 
New England exploded for three runs on three hits after going down 1-2-3 in the first on six pitches, all groundouts to third baseman Sara Larquier. The Riptide loaded the bases with no outs for Lisa Iancin who hit a sharp groundball to second base and was thrown out, but picked up the RBI to score pinch runner Shanel Scott. A two-out single by second baseman Carri Leto Martin scored two more runs to extend the lead to 3-0.
 
Washington was quick to respond cutting the lead to 3-2 as second baseman Stephanie Best launched a two-run bomb to centerfield, scoring centerfielder Catalina Morris who singled to lead off the inning.
 
Riptide designated player Carmen Paez then slugged her first career home run with a two-run blast in the top of the third to extend her team’s lead back to three at 5-2.
 
Two errors in the fifth inning were costly for the Glory. New England added to its lead as centerfielder Gina Carbonnato scored all the way from second on an error by shortstop Amber Jackson. Carbonnato reached earlier in the inning on a fielder’s choice to first baseman Oli Keohohou.
 
Second year pitcher Eileen Canney, whom the Glory did not face in its championship run last season, received the win in a complete game. The former Northwestern Wildcat allowed just two runs on five hits while striking out three and walking a pair.
 
2007 NPF Pitcher of the Year Desiree Serrano got the loss despite allowing just three earned runs on four hits. Washington out-hit New England with hits by Best, Keohohou, Morris, Nicole Barber, and local standout Courtney Bures.
 
The same two teams meet Saturday night in game three of the four game series at Westfield for a 7:05 pm start.
