Maine Colleges: Bowdoin reaches NESCAC softball final

From staff reports

MEDFORD, Mass. - Julia Geaumont allowed one run on four hits as Bowdoin advanced to the NESCAC softball championship round by beating Middlebury 5-1 in its second elimination game Saturday.

In a morning elimination game, Melissa Della Torre threw a four-hit shutout as the Polar Bears (30-13) stayed alive with a 2-0 victory against Wesleyan (24-12).

Bowdoin will play Tufts at 10 a.m. Sunday. The Polar Bears, with one loss, need to beat the undefeated Jumbos twice to take the title. A second game, if necessary, will follow.

Trailing 1-0, Bowdoin scored three runs in the fifth and two in the sixth to beat Middlebury. Casey Correa doubled with one out in the fifth and went to third on a wind-aided double by Siena Mitman.

An out later, Toni DaCampo singled home both runs. Gen Barlow followed with a single up the middle, scoring DaCampo for a 3-1 lead.

Correa then drove a two-run double off the fence in left, giving the Polar Bears a 5-1 lead.

Bowdoin beat Wesleyan earlier with single runs in the first and third innings.


MIDDLEBURY 11, COLBY 10: Margaret Souther's fifth goal of the game, with 2:51 left, capped a second-half comeback against fourth-seeded Colby (12-4) as the second-seeded Panthers (15-1) advanced to the NESCAC final at Hartford, Conn., while eliminating the Mules.


BRIDGTON ACADEMY 7, SMCC 4: Ethan Bilderback went 3 for 3 for the Seawolves (22-22-1) who dropped the best-of-three 302 Challenge Cup series in two games with a loss at Bridgton.
