What a difference a day can be. In an emotional battle yesterday against Timber Creek, Seneca found themselves trailing by a run heading into the seventh inning. Not only did they send that game into extra innings, the Golden Eagles found a way during the ninth inning to defeat the Chargers by a run. Not wasting any time against today's opponent, Bishop Eustace, Seneca jumped out to a five run lead and never looked back. Kim Narkiewicz knocked in three of those runs with the first of two home runs on the day and Seneca would have an easier time picking up the victory at Bishop Eustace. The Eagles would post a 12-1 win in an Olympic Conference National Division softball game.
Seneca wasted little time putting runs on the scoreboard during the first inning. Narkiewicz’s blast immediately put the Eagles in a comfort zone. That feeling would extend to the next inning as two more runners crossed the plate and all of a sudden, Seneca had a 7-0 lead after two innings. Leading now by a 10-1 score at the top of the fifth inning, Narkiewicz added two more runs for Seneca with her second home run of the game. This game would end early and Seneca would extend their winning streak to four games. Susan Jackman picked up the win for the Golden Eagles.
