Le Moyne 3, C.W. Post 1

May 15, 2005

SYRACUSE, N.Y. * Regional Most Valuable Player Sarah Reed (DeWitt, N.Y./Jamesville-DeWitt) earned her sixth win of the tournament as third-seeded Le Moyne finished off top-seeded C.W. Post 3-1 in the NCAA Division II Softball Championship at the Thomas J. Niland Athletic Complex. The Dolphins (43-9) won five consecutive games, including two straight over C.W. Post (39-19), to capture their third regional in the last four seasons.

Reed, the winning pitcher in all six Le Moyne tournament victories, took a no-hitter into the seventh inning. C.W. Post senior Krystle Scala (Medford, N.Y./Patchogue-Medford) homered with one out in the seventh to spoil Reed's shutout and no-hit bid. She struck out six and walked two to improve to 17-4 on the season. In six regional appearances, Reed posted a 6-0 record, 0.48 ERA, struck out 32 and allowed just 10 hits in 29 innings.

Le Moyne jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the third. Sophomore Lindsay Spaziani (Horseheads, N.Y./Horseheads) drew a one-out walk to start the rally. After an infield error, Spaziani moved to third and beat the throw to the plate on Reed's infield grounder to score the first run.

The Dolphins tacked on runs in the fourth and seventh. Senior Lisa Flow (Holley, N.Y./Kendall) put the Dolphins up 2-0 on a solo home run in the top of the fourth inning. It marked Flow's first round-tripper in over two seasons. Senior Kim Kalec (Horseheads, N.Y./Horseheads) doubled home Jennifer Winters (Vestal, N.Y./Vestal) to make it 3-0 with two outs in the top of the seventh. Winters and Kalec had two hits each to account for four of Le Moyne's six hits.

Scala trimmed it to a 3-1 game with her sixth home run of the season. Kelsey Walker (West Hills, Calif./El Camino Real) singled to right to register the second hit of the game off Reed.

Reed's six wins are the most possible in the NCAA Division II softball tournament's current six-team double-elimination tournament format. Reed picked up the win in relief of Le Moyne's two wins over New Haven and the first championship game win over C.W. Post. She was the winning pitcher in a start yesterday against second-seeded Caldwell and today's title win.

Spaziani, Winters and Kalec joined Reed on the all-tournament team.

Le Moyne travels to Salem, Va. for the eight-team NCAA Division II Softball Championship. The Dolphins will meet unbeaten Northern Kentucky (53-0), the Great Lakes region champion, on Thursday at the James I. Moyer Sports Complex. Game times for the double-elimination tournament will be announced later this week.
