The Softball-Team endured two losses against the reigning Swiss champion Luzern Eagles on Saturday, April 27 in the Challengers home opener. The Eagles proved to be the best team in Switzerland by winning the first game of the doubleheader 16-1, as Corina Casparis belted a two-run homer and Julia Gloukhoff drove in four runs. Ziegylou Wehrli led the Challengers with two hits, while Simona Cellar delivered a ground rule double over the right field fence.
And the Eagles' bats remained on fire, as they completed the sweep with a victory in Game 2. The Challengers scored three runs in the bottom of the first inning and had several strong at-bats but were overmatched by the Eagles' consistent offensive production, as they erupted for eleven runs in the fourth frame to eventually win 20-3. Sandrine Montandon had a double, while Anouk Lkharrazi, Leandra Simitovic, Simona Cellar and Alexia Zingg had a single each.
The C's will host the Bern Cardinals on Saturday, May 11 at the Klopstockwiese for their next games.
