Achzet competes for Wells College

KEUKA PARK – The Wells College softball team posted back-to-back losses to Keuka College on Saturday.

Playing in the team’s first ever home-and-home series across its 15-year history, the Express fell to 1-11 overall on the season.

The Express fell victim to the mercy rule in each game, dropping the first game of the day by a 10-2 score in five innings before being shut out by Keuka in the second game, 16-0. Wells mustered only seven hits on the afternoon, striking out 11 times cumulatively while allowing the Storm to bat nearly .500 through the two games (25-for-51, .490).

In the first game, Wells sophomore Lindsay Achzet, a Johnstown graduate, finished the afternoon with three hits in four at-bats.

In the second game of the afternoon, the Express collected only three hits in a 16-0 loss. Taking to the circle in the second game, Achzet took the loss in the circle after allowing 14 earned runs in four innings.

Wells is scheduled to travel to SUNY Cobleskill for a road doubleheader today at 3 p.m.
