Storm Falls to Wayne State

PAINESVILLE, Ohio – The Lake Erie College softball team was in action today as they fell in both games against Wayne State. 

The Warriors jumped out to a quick lead with a run in the top of the first inning.  The Warriors tacked on a pair of runs in the sixth inning and took a 3-0 lead.  Allyson Deemer (Poland, Ohio / Poland Seminary) pitched a solid game.  She cruised thru the middle of the game as she did not allow any runs in the second, third , fourth, or fifth innings.  Deemer capped off her complete game with a perfect seventh inning, but the Storm fell, 3-0. 

In game two, the Storm jumped out to an early lead in the top of the first inning when Elizabeth Karako (Fairport Harbor, Ohio / Lake Catholic) doubled home Marissa Rizzo (Northfield Center, Ohio / Nordonia) who walked earlier in the inning.  Wayne State responded with three runs in the bottom of the first to take a 3-1 lead.  After a scoreless second inning the Storm added a run in the third and cut the Warriors lead to, 3-2 when Savannah Karako (Fairport Harbor, Ohio / Lake Catholic) singled home Kristin Peacock (Hebron, Ohio / Lakewood) who singled earlier in the inning.  The Warriors regained a two run lead with a run in the fifth to take a 4-2 lead.  The Storm was unable to muster a comeback and fell, 4-2. 

Lake Erie will be back in action Tuesday (April 18) when they travel to take on Notre Dame College.
