  • BOCA RATON, FL – The Rutgers softball team (0-2) fell in its first two games of the season at the Florida Atlantic Tournament on Friday, Feb. 18, in Boca Raton, FL. The Scarlet Knights dropped game one against the Buckeyes 8-0 and lost to host Florida Atlantic 7-2 in the second game of the evening.

    On day one of the FAU Tournament, Rutgers battled back from an early 3-0 deficit in the second inning, but unfortunately was not able to overcome a run made by the Buckeyes in sixth. Ohio State’s Nycole Koyano tripled to left field, driving in three runs to give the Buckeyes a 3-0 lead in the third and in the sixth inning, OSU pulled away as Brittany Vanderink drove in two runs on a triple to left center field, increasing the lead to 7-0.

    In the nightcap, Florida Atlantic got off to a quick start, scoring five runs in the first inning. The Scarlet Knights rallied back, scoring two runs in the fifth, as junior Christina Gillman (Valencia, CA) hit an RBI single through the right side, driving in sophomore Kristin Madoch (Glenview, IL) from third base, while senior Stephanie Johanssen (Penn Valley, CA) scored a run on a wild pitch to close out the inning.

    The Scarlet Knights will return to the field on Saturday, Feb. 19, when they face North Carolina State at 9:00 a.m., followed by a match up against No. 8 Michigan at 3:00 p.m.
