Georgetown College softball got behind early on the road at Mid-South Conference foe University of Virginia College at Wise. The Cavaliers (14-14, 2-4 MSC) scored four runs in the bottom of the first off senior starter Michelle Dresselhaus. They also took a 3-0 lead after one in the second game off of junior Katie Mann.
But the Tigers (17-9, 6-2) roared back for 6-4 and 5-3 victories respectively.
Freshman Kayla Williams came in to stall the Wise offense until GC could get its bats going in the first game. She allowed two hits in six innings of work with four strikeouts. Mann settled down in game two for the complete game win, striking out three and scattering three hits. Only one of the three runs was earned.
In game one, Chelsea Riney led the team in hitting, going 3-of-4 with a run scored and an RBI. The sophomore accounted for almost half of the Tigers hits with three of the seven. Madelyn Brown had two RBI off her one hit, and she also scored a run. GC clawed back with five runs in the bottom of the fifth and added an insurance run in the sixth.
Game two, Mann helped her own cause, going 3-of-4 from the plate with a run scored and two RBI. The Tigers got back in this game a whole lot quicker, scoring two runs in the top of the second. Then grab a lead in the top of the fourth with two more runs. They added the insurance run in the top of the seventh.
GC returns to action Wednesday in a doubleheader hosting Midway. First pitch is set for 5 pm.
