Softball - Thu, Mar. 22, 2012

Georgetown College softball has emerged from its toughest portion of the schedule - playing all ranked opponents or opponents receiving votes through the first 22 games.

"We don't play anyone easy," said Tiger coach Thomas Thornton. "For the most part I've liked the way we have competed and think we've come together through all of this."

They finished up the testing road with No. 13 Lindsey Wilson College (28-6, 7-1 Mid-South Conference) Wednesday in Columbia. Senior pitcher Michelle Dresselhaus quieted the Blue Raider bats in game one, helping the Tigers (13-9, 4-2) to a 2-0 win. Then GC led by one heading into the final LWC at-bat in the second game. LWC rallied for two runs and a 3-2 victory for the split.

"We have things to work on and we have things to take away from this early-season schedule," Thornton said. "Games like these can only make us stronger."

Dresselhaus scattered six hits with just two walks in the complete-game win. Junior Katie Mann pitched the second game scattering nine hits, giving up three runs with four walks and five strikeouts.

Lindsey scored first in the bottom of the third, but the Tigers responded with a run each in the fifth and sixth for a 2-1 advantage.

GC tallied two outs in the bottom of the seventh before Lindsey pushed across the winning run to end game two.

Chelsey Riney accounted for three of the team's eight hits in the second game, going 3-of-4 with an RBI. Hillary Plain was 2-of-3. Madelyn Brown, Jordan Clemons, Tori Shover, Plain and Mann each had one hit in game one.

Georgetown returns to action Thursday at Midway College. First pitch of the doubleheader is set for 4 pm.
