Following postponed game, Owls set to begin regular season schedule

The Owls will give it one more go to start their non-tournament season schedule.

Temple (6-13) will try and get in a double-header today after a postponed double-header against Iona Wednesday and a surprise postponement before the first pitch yesterday against La Salle (9-6).

Temple hasn’t played since its final game of the City of Clearwater Spring Invitational on March 17 despite having three games planned before what was supposed to be one game today.

Now the Owls head to La Salle to take on the Explorers at 1 p.m., with the second game starting shortly after the conclusion of the first.

Coach Joe DiPietro’s squad will be looking to snap a four-game skid but will need help from a pitching staff that has struggled throughout the season with a 7.06 earned run average. Only freshman Dominik Kelsey has below a three ERA, in 34.2 innings of work. She’s also the only one with multiple wins, boasting a record of 3-1 on the season.

The double-header marks the first time the Owls will play this season close to home, after spending the first 19 games at tournaments in Florida and North Carolina.
