Softball - Sun, Mar. 9, 2014
Georgetown College softball scored eight runs on seven hits and made an early lead stand in staying undefeated in Mid-South Conference play. The Tigers (8-3, 3-0) crossed the plate five times in the bottom of the first and three more times in the second in an 8-6 win over the University of Rio Grande.
Shelby Engle hit an RBI double to start the first at-bat onslaught. Chelsae Osborn brought in Emily Snow and Sandy Young's double plated Engle and Osborn. Young came around a few RedStorm bobbles and it was 5-2 after the first frame.
GC built on that cushion the next inning. Taylor Shaw started with a single and came in on a single by Chelsea Riney. The speedy senior stole second and third and scored her second run of the day off Osborn's single. The Tigers stranded two that inning, but held the decisive edge 8-2.
Rio rallied with two runs in the third and a run in each the sixth and the seventh, but could never overcome the early deficit.
Kayla Williams went six innings for the win, allowing five earned runs off nine hits and struck out one. Sydney Goyette came in for the save, giving up one hit and striking out one.
Riney was the lone Tiger to collect two hits. She went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI. Osborn and Young each had two RBI on 1-of-3 hitting. Cassidy Taylor, Shaw and Engle were the other three with hits for GC.
