WILLIAMSTOWN, MA - The Amherst College softball team dropped their NESCAC Tournament first round game to Tufts University, 8-0, Friday afternoon in Williamstown. The game was stopped in the bottom of the fifth inning due to the mercy rule. Jumbo senior hurler Jodie Moreau (Clarksburg, MA) was perfect through five innings.

Tufts drew first blood in the bottom of the second when sophomore Deana Davidian (Chelmsford, MA) knocked in a pair of runners, smacking a shot into the outfield. The Jumbos tallied the game-ending run when Moreau hit an RBI double into left field.

Jeff senior pitcher Lauren Peloquin (Berkley, MA) fell to 14-8 with the loss. Amherst returns to action at the double elimination tournament tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. against Bowdoin College, who lost to Williams College, 1-0.
