Naperville, IL -- The Beloit College Softball team dropped a non-conference doubleheader at North Central College on Thursday, falling 8-1 and 8-0.

The Buccaneers got their lone run in the second inning when Kandace Fox, who singled to start the inning, came around to score an unearned run.
Fox, Kourtney Kingslien and Emily Dorjath got hits for the Bucs.
In game two, North Central scored twice in the first but then were held at bay until they exploded for five runs in the fifth. They ended the game early with an unearned run in the sixth.
Fox had a double while Tara Grode and Kingslien singled for the Buccaneer hits.
Beloit returns home on Sunday to host Eureka College for Friends & Family Day. First pitch is at 12:00 noon.
