Eastern Florida Splits With Palm Beach State; Indian River Next

April 5, 2014 - Setting the stage for Monday's showdown at Florida College System Activities Association Southern Conference leader and nationally second-ranked Indian River State College, Eastern Florida State split a softball doubleheader at Palm Beach State on Saturday.

Palm Beach won the opener 11-3 but Eastern Florida rebounded to win the second game 10-4.

Meanwhile, Indian River State split with Miami Dade College, winning 1-0 and losing 2-1, tightening the top of the Southern Conference standings.

Indian River is 6-2 in conference and 32-6 overall. Eastern Florida is 5-3 and 19-20 and Miami Dade 6-4 and 22-12. Palm Beach State is 5-5 and 17-25.

The top three finishers in each of the FCSAA's four conferences advance to the state tournament in Pensacola in May, a feat Eastern Florida has accomplished in nine of the past 10 seasons.

On Saturday, right-hander and freshman Dajia Jones was the losing pitcher in the first game while left-handed sophomore Brooke Formby picked up the win in the second game.

Sophomore Manya Lopez keyed the Eastern Florida offense going 4-for-5 with two doubles and three runs batted in. Freshman Harlee Gadley went 3-for-4 while classmate Shelby Nazworth went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI.

Eastern Florida and Indian River square off at 2 and 4 p.m. Monday in Fort Pierce.
