Softball - Wed, Feb. 15, 2017

Union College started and finished strong in game two Tuesday. The Bulldogs scored four in the first and the sixth innings, giving enough breathing room over the Georgetown College softball team as darkness set in to end the game. UC won 9-6.

The Tigers (1-1) rallied in the fourth to tie the game at four and took their first lead with a run scored in the fifth. Sydney Goyette walked, advanced on a ground out and then used two wild pitches for a 5-4 GC advantage.

Union tied it back up in the bottom half, but Georgetown once again scored in the sixth for a 6-5 lead. The Bulldogs then caught up to game-one winner Audrey Dodd, scoring four runs off three hits and knocking her from relief duty after just a third of an inning. Averie Lozano came in and finished the inning.

However, the rally took so long it prevented the Tigers from having a chance in the top of the seventh as darkness shadowed the field in Barbourville, Ky. and play was deemed unsafe.

Kara Howard pitched five innings, scattering 10 hits and allowing four runs. She left with no-decision as the game was tied 5-5. Dodd takes the loss, leveling her collegiate record at 1-1.

Cassidy Janes and Allison Watson accounted for half the GC hits. The pair both went 2-for-3 in the game. Watson had two RBIs, while Janes had a run scored and an RBI.

Georgetown returns to action Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the Martin Methodist College's Meltdown tournament. The Tigers face No. 15 Davenport University and Grace Bible College 4 and 6 pm respectively on Friday. Saturday is another 4 and 6 pm schedule against Calumet College of St. Joseph and Lawrence Technological University. Sunday, GC plays CCSJ at noon and then host No. 14 MMC at 4 pm.
