Intramural Softball Team Travels to Lycoming, Wins 25-24 Thriller

Intramural softball team defeats Lycoming It looked like it was going to be a long afternoonat the Penn College vs. Lycoming College softball game, even though a Wildcat intramural team began by scoring four runs in the first inning on home runs by Evan Greene and Brandon Sauers and hits by Ben Vincent, Greg Solyak, Chris Bunda and John Kulick. Lycoming answered with five home runs in a row, torching Penn College for a total of eight in the bottom of the first inning. Sauers then came through again for Penn College with a single to score Kyle Klunk and make the score 8-5. However, Lycoming scored three more times and led 11-5 after two innings. Penn College’s bats came to life in the third inning, scoring six runs thanks to base hits by Brock Bonanno, Kulick, Gavin Mock and Sauers, and another home run by Greene. Unfortunately, Lycoming answered with five runs of its own. Still chipping away at the lead, Penn College scored twice more in the fourth inning on a homer by Mock, and exploded for seven runs in the sixth inning as every batter reached base including back-to-back-to-back home runs by Sauers, Vincent and Greene (his third of the day). Lycoming’s bats went dead in the sixth and seventh innings, during which they managed only three runs, which allowed Penn College to come back with a thrilling 25-24 win over its crosstown rivals.
