Softball - Sun, Mar. 31, 2013
Georgetown College softball made a trip to Tennessee this weekend, but only got to play two of the schedule four games. Friday's games with NCAA Division II Trevecca Nazarene were wiped out because of weather.
However, the Tigers split the next day with Mid-South Conference newcomer Cumberland University to stay in third with a 9-5 record in league play. They are 17-9 overall.
Georgetown took game one 3-1, but struggled to find its offense in a 5-0 shutout of game two. Hillary Plain led in game one with two of the Tigers seven hits. The senior was 2-of-3 with a run scored and an RBI. Shelby Engle was 1-of-2 with two RBI. The team rallied back from a 1-0 deficit to tie it in the top of the sixth and take control in the seventh. Kayla Williams picked up her second win of the week. She went all seven innings, scattering five hits and striking out two.
The Bulldogs jumped out early in game two with a 2-0 bottom of the first. Georgetown managed just seven hits against Allison Blackwood. The Tigers stranded seven runners and no batter go more than one hit against Blackwood.
Georgetown returns to action Tuesday hosting the University of the Cumberlands in a doubleheader at Tiger Softball Complex. Game one is set for 3 pm.
