Georgetown College softball battled No. 4 Campbellsville University Friday in the first doubleheader of the weekend series. The visiting Tigers (41-7, 25-1) needed late bursts to take both games, 7-1 and 14-3. CU scored four runs in game one to break it open and eight runs in game two in the team's final at bat.

"We had our moments, just didn't capitalize on everything the way we need to when you play a team like Campbellsville," said GC coach Thomas Thornton.

The visitors belted eight home runs – five in game two – that helped to put pressure on Georgetown.

Chaselyn Allgeier tied up a close game one as the speedy sophomore stole third and took home on a wild throw for a 1-1 game.

Campbellsville broke it open when a couple of walks loaded the bases in the fifth inning. The visitors plated two runs for a 3-1 lead.

Three of the final four runs in the last inning were scored off home runs as CU took a six-run lead.

Both teams traded runs in the first frame of game two. Two home runs scored three runs in the third, while singles and some miscues scored two more in the fourth for Campbellsville.

The visitors were up 6-1 at that point. Georgetown rallied with a run in the fourth and fifth to cut the deficit to three.

Campbellsville scored six of its eight runs off two home runs in the sixth inning of game two to break the game wide open.

The two teams square off noon Saturday in the first of another doubleheader. Georgetown will celebrate Senior Day between the two games.
