WATERVILLE, Maine --- Trinity College pitcher Hannah King (Kennebunk, Maine) and Colby College hurler Megan Michie (Rhinebeck, N.Y.) put on a duel at Crafts Field, with an error hurting the Mules as the Bantams took a 1-0 victory in NESCAC East play on Friday.

Trinity moves to 9-16 overall and 2-5 in the conference, while the Mules drop to 8-12 and 2-5 in the league. The two teams will play again at Crafts Field in a doubleheader at noon Saturday.

King, a first-year pitcher, allowed just one hit, struck out three, and walked one in her complete game. Michie took the tough loss without allowing an earned run, gave up just two hits, struck out four, and walked four.

Kerry McCarthy (Andover, Mass.) led off the fourth inning with a single, moved to second on an outfielder error, took third on a sacrifice bunt by Olivia Berry (Quincy, Mass.), and scored on an RBI groundout to third by Miranda Riendeau-Card (Bowdoinham, Maine).

Both pitchers were strong as the game wore on, with Michie getting a putout and two assists in the fifth inning. In the Colby sixth, King nabbed a line shot, had an assist on a grounder back to the mound, and registered a strikeout.

McCarthy went 1-for-1 on the day, with the big hit in the fourth inning and two sacrifice bunts. Abigail Ostrom (Carlisle, Mass.) had Trinity's other hit, while Erica Correa (Glen Rock, N.J.) walked twice.

Lauren Becker (Falls Church, Va.) had Colby's lone hit, a single in the second inning, and had the walk in the fifth inning.
