Hofstra Shuts Out Virginia 3-0

TAMPA, Fla. - Hofstra scored two run in the first inning and finished off the struggling Cavaliers 3-0, in a game that was not originally on the schedule.

Both team failed to make it to the "playoff" flight of the Speedline Invitational, but not wanting to waste a great day of weather in Florida, these two schools from less than ideal softball climates got together for an impromptu game.

Once against, the Virginia offense was quiet, as the Cavs were shutout for the fourth time in the club's first six contests. The bright spots came from Beth Crimi and Stacy Holmes, both finished with two hits.

Virginia had a potential rally in the seventh, but after Crimi and Holmes led off with two singles, Hofstra's Beth Smith finished off the Cavaliers by retiring the next three batters to end the game. Kristi Fox (6.0 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K) took the loss for UVa.
