Julia Jones’ complete game was not enough to lead Lafayette (0-6) to victory against New Kent.
The Rams lost at home 4-0 on Thursday.
A rocky first inning saw the Trojans get on the board four times. Jones settled down from that point on to hold New Kent scoreless.
Unfortunately for Lafayette, New Kent pitcher Brittany LaPrade was dealing on the mound, striking out 10 batters while holding the Rams hitless. LaPrade gave up a walk, which prevented her from logging a perfect game.
Lafayette will hope to get its bats going against Warhill at 6:30 p.m. Friday.
