Softball - Fri, Mar. 23, 2012
Georgetown College softball took care of business in
quick fashion Thursday afternoon. After finishing off the mountain of a
schedule with a split against No. 13 Lindsey Wilson College, the Tigers (15-9)
needed just 11 of the 14 innings in a doubleheader with Midway College.
GC run-ruled the nearby foe in five innings and then
needed six in game two. Michelle Dresselhaus blanked the Eagles in the 9-0 win
and Kayla Williams did the same in game two for an 8-0 win.
Chelsea Riney, Mallory Johnson, Katie Mann and Cassidy
Taylor did the damage from the plate, each pounding out two hits in the first
game. Riney scored twice and had an RBI, while Johnson was just the opposite -
scoring once with two RBI. Mann touched home plate twice and Taylor had an RBI
and scored once.
"It's good to see them come out and do what I know they
can do, but the scores can be a little deceiving as well," Tiger coach Thomas
Thornton said. "Midway was holding us in the early game until a five-run,
fourth-inning broke things open.
"It was similar in the second game; we needed a four-run,
fourth-inning and a three-run, sixth-inning to take that game in a run rule."
GC pounded out 15 hits and had six of the eight runs as
RBI. Taylor Shaw led, going 3-of-3 with a run scored. Riney, Madelyn Brown,
Mann and Taylor all had two hits as well.
The Tigers return to action Saturday at University of
Virginia College at Wise in a Mid-South Conference doubleheader. First pitch is
set for noon.
