1  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Softball / Re: Softball vs URI 3/25-26 on: Yesterday at 12:46:49 pm
The first game Saturday has been moved up to 10 am due to anticipated rain.
2  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Softball / Softball vs URI 3/25-26 on: March 23, 2017, 07:58:22 pm
URI is always at the bottom of the A10 and their #262 RPI this year would put them in the cellar again.

They hit .244, have little power and absolutely no speed.  Their ERA is a horrendous 8.75, with their best pitcher at a 6.08.  Their fielding is a weak .938.

We have a double header with them on Saturday starting at noon and a game Sunday at 1 pm.

I can't cover any of these games, so anyone, please feel free to post updates.

Here's the SID's pregame writeup:  http://fordhamsports.com/news/2017/3/23/softball-opens-conference-play-by-hosting-rhode-island-for-three-game-series.aspx

Here's an interview with Bridget confirming that Quense was ill and couldn't play vs Hofstra.  Also includesa a talk with Jess Hughes.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srOJGkRHLgs&feature=youtu.be

Here's the SID's writeup and box score:  http://www.fordhamsports.com/news/2017/3/21/softball-falls-to-hofstra-3-2-in-home-opener.aspx?path=softball

Here's Snapshot's(?) photo gallery of the game.  http://fordhamsports.com/galleries/?gallery=629

One of Hofstra's runs was unearned.

We only had 6 hits and left 11 on base.

Aughinbaugh gave up 4 hits in 5 innings with 2 Ks and 1 BB.  Stocks gave up 1 hit in 2 innings with 2 Ks and 1 WP.  Not sure why Quense didn't pitch other than Bridget knew ahead of time the Iona game on Wed was canceled and she wanted to give the freshmen a challenge.  They did well enough to win.

Cornell pitched well for Hofstra but we've done better against better.

We're now 20-7 and open the season vs Rhode Island on Saturday at home.  The weather needs to get better.  These should be 3 relatively easy wins and the A10 doesn't make canceled games up.

In the 4th vs Hofstra, Aughinbaugh gave up 2 singles and a double scoring a run.
In our half, Vergona popped up.  Figueroa grounded out.  Trivelpiece popped up.  Rams up 2-1 after 4.

In the 5th, Aughinbaugh gave up a 2-out double.  Hughes made an error on a GB.   Aughinbaugh gave up a walk to load the bases.  An error on Van Hoven scored a run to tie it.  A K ended it. 
In the bottom half, Hughes popped up.  Van Hoven singled.  Canessa flied out.  Van Hoven stole 2b.  Now is 12/12.  Mayer walked.  Shaw grounded out.  2 LOB.  2-2 after 5.

In the 6th, Stocks in to pitch for Aughinbaugh.  She gave up a leadoff double.  Sac bunt moved runner to 3b.  A WP scored a run.  Shaw made a diving catch for out #3.
In the bottom half, Skrepenak PH for Johnston and popped up.  WAY too many pop ups in this one.  Vergona was HBP.  Figueroa got an infield single.  Trivelpiece hit into a force at 2nd.  Hughes walked to load the bases.  Van Hoven grounded out.  3 more LOB.  That's 9 in total.  Rms down 3-2 after 6.

In the bottom half, Canessa walked.  Mayer walked.  Shaw popped up, as did Skrepenak.  Vergona K'd looking.  2 LOB, making 11 for the game.

Rams lose 3-2.  We gave that one away.  I'll fill in the stats later.

We're back to our regular lineup with Van Hoven hitting 2nd and Shaw 5th.  Johnston is DP, hitting for Aughinbaugh.  Trivelpiece is in RF.  Surprisinglly, Aughinbaugh is starting in the circle.  Quense isn't at 1b; Shaw is.

Hofstra's ace, Cornell (2.70 ERA) is pitching for them.  She has a 5:3 K:BB ratio and about a 1.2 WHIP.

We have an extra camera this year, one from RCF, plus one from either side of home plate looking down the lines.

There's a small mountain of snow just beyond the CF fence and some in the stands.  It's 50 degrees, but is expected to be 30 tomorrow, cancelling our game vs Iona.

In the 1st, Aughinbaugh retired the side in order, getting 1 K.
In our half, Hughes K'd, a rarity.  Van Hoven hit her first HR of the year.  Canessa walked.  Mayer singled Canessa to 3b.  Shaw walked to load the bases.  Johnston and Vergona K'd.  3 LOB.  Cornell has some pop and movement on her pitches.  Rams up 1-0 after 1.

In the 2nd, Aughinbaugh retired the side in order on 5 pitches.
In our half, Figueroa doubled down the line.  Trivelpiece popped up foul.  Hughes K'd again.  Van Hoven dribbled ne up the middle, scoring Figueroa, Van Hoven moving to 2b on the throw.  Canessa popped up.  1 LOB.  Rams up 2-0 after 2.

In the 3rd, Aughinbaugh retired the side on 5 pitches again.
In the bottom half, Mayer and Shaw popped up.  Johnston K'd looking again.  5Ks for Cornell.  Rams up 2-0 after 3.

Don't be surprised to see the RPI get worse even if we keep winning.
Yep that's possible too based on the weakness of the A10 teams.

8  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Softball / Fordham Softball Highly Ranked in First RPI on: March 20, 2017, 05:08:35 pm
In the first NCAA Softball RPI released for 2017, the Rams came in #35, close to where they were earlier in the top-25 only rankings.
http://www.ncaa.com/rankings/softball/d1/ncaa-womens-softball-rpi

Elsewhere among NE teams, Pitt is #31, Syracuse is #68, BC is #71, St. John's is #77, Hofstra is #96, and Penn State is #100.  The highest other A10 team is St. Louis at #151.

We play Hofstra tomorrow and St. John's later in the year.  Not much chance to move up a lot, but we could get to #25-30 if we keep winning.
9  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Softball / Quense Named A10 Co-Pitcher of the Week Again on: March 20, 2017, 01:31:45 pm
This is the 5th time in 6 weeks Lauren has earned this award.  She has a 1.89 ERA and is 13-3.  The Rams are 20-6 and face Hofstra tomorrow in their home opener at 2 pm.

Here's the SID's summary and box score:  http://fordhamsports.com/news/2017/3/19/womens-basketballs-season-ends-at-penn-state.aspx

Special thanks to Hannah Missry, Danielle Burns and Danielle Padovano for giving us four great years.  Congrats also on your academic achievements.
12  The Fordham Forums / All Other Fordham Rams' Sports / Re: WBB WNIT on: March 19, 2017, 03:43:32 pm
Rams lose 70-51 and wound up 22-12 for the year., the fourth most wins in program history.  Burns, Missry and Padovano, seniors, pulled with a minute to go. 

Penn State is 16-1 at home this year.

Davis with her 24th double double.  She had 20 points and 15 boards.

Missry wound up with 12 and Kelly with 8.

We shot 26% to their 46%.  We outrebounded them 43-32, and 23-7 offensively.  We had 13 TOs to only 7 for PS.

The slow start hurt again.
13  The Fordham Forums / All Other Fordham Rams' Sports / Re: WBB WNIT on: March 19, 2017, 03:19:26 pm
Down 55-32 after 3.

Davis now with 13 with 7/8 from the line. 

Shooting 22% vs 56%, although we're controlling the boards 31-22.  17 on offense vs 4.
14  The Fordham Forums / All Other Fordham Rams' Sports / Re: WBB WNIT on: March 19, 2017, 03:02:54 pm
Starting to make our 3's, but can't stop PS.  Down 43-23 with 5 to go in the 3rd.
15  The Fordham Forums / All Other Fordham Rams' Sports / Re: WBB WNIT on: March 19, 2017, 02:56:59 pm
Live Stats are working now.

Kelly leads with 6 points.
16  The Fordham Forums / All Other Fordham Rams' Sports / Re: WBB WNIT on: March 19, 2017, 02:40:06 pm
Down 33-12 at the half.

PS shooting 46%.  Rams 6-32 (19%), 0-10 from 3.  Did not take a FT.  Steph needs to chew them out at the half like she did vs. Georgetown.
17  The Fordham Forums / All Other Fordham Rams' Sports / Re: WBB WNIT on: March 19, 2017, 02:37:01 pm
Down 29-8. 3 to go in the 2nd.  We're about 4-30 from the floor.

Davis given a technical.  Is pretty frustrated.
18  The Fordham Forums / All Other Fordham Rams' Sports / Re: WBB WNIT on: March 19, 2017, 02:21:26 pm
Rams down 17-4 after 1.

23-4 with 7 to go in the 2nd qtr.

19  The Fordham Forums / All Other Fordham Rams' Sports / Re: WBB WNIT on: March 19, 2017, 02:15:45 pm
Heard back that WFUV is up now but Live Stats are down. : (

Rams down 11 early, 15-4  Two minutes to go in the first.  1-13 from the field with a lot of TOs.  Kreslina is playing today.
20  The Fordham Forums / All Other Fordham Rams' Sports / Re: WBB WNIT on: March 19, 2017, 02:04:50 pm
Is the game being broadcast or streamed?
Looks like streamed, for a fee.  Is also on WFUV, but I'm not getting Stats or WFUV as of 2:10 pm.
21  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Softball / Softball vs Hofstra 3/21 on: March 18, 2017, 10:43:05 pm
Game moved to the Bronx on Tues.  Remains at 2pm.  Our grounds crew did a great job on Houlihan so I suspect they did the same on Bahoshy.

Hofstra isn't quite as strong as they used to be and are 8-10, with a .244 BA and 4.60 ERA.  They have one pitcher, a freshman, with a 2.70 ERA, however.  They have few HRs and SBs, but have a good defense.

They've played a pretty tough schedule and have wins over St. Joe's, Binghamton, FIU, BC, and Longwood.  They lost a close one to #20 USF but got trounced twice by #4 Oregon.  All of their local games this week were cancelled.  They were ranked #67 last year to our #63.  If they use their ace, this could be a tough game.  Currently they have a 96 RIP to our 35.

This will be a tough one.
23  The Fordham Forums / All Other Fordham Rams' Sports / Re: WBB WNIT on: March 18, 2017, 03:06:00 pm
Does anyone know if Kreslina can play Sunday?
Coach Steph said she has a virus.  Unsure yet if she can play.  With her height and versatility, we need her.  All the more impressive that we beat Georgetown without her.

27  The Fordham Forums / All Other Fordham Rams' Sports / Re: WBB WNIT on: March 17, 2017, 09:33:01 pm
It'll be AT Penn State on Sunday at 2 pm.
28  The Fordham Forums / All Other Fordham Rams' Sports / Re: WBB WNIT on: March 17, 2017, 08:55:01 pm
Rams have an unbelievable comeback and win 60-49.  We turned up the defense and starting hitting our shots in the 2nd half.  They had to foul and we sank them all.

Davis with 16 and Goulding with (a career high) 19.  Davis with her 23rd double double of the season with 17 boards.  Goulding had 10.  We beat them in total boards 45-40.

Am surprised Kreslina didn't play at all.  They found out just before the game that she couldn't play.  Don't know why yet.

Fomina didn't have a good game, going 0-5, with 4 fouls and 5 TOs.  Hope she gets it back for the next one.

We play Penn State on Sunday.

That was the 120th Ram win for Coach Gaitley.
29  The Fordham Forums / All Other Fordham Rams' Sports / Re: WBB WNIT on: March 17, 2017, 08:41:33 pm
What is the score and time left

Go Rams
2:12 left.  Rams up 51-43.

30  The Fordham Forums / All Other Fordham Rams' Sports / Re: WBB WNIT on: March 17, 2017, 08:29:04 pm
Up 48-36 with 5 to go.  What a comeback!
