Softball - Tue, Apr. 11, 2017

Georgetown College women's softball scored 10 runs in the final two innings to blast its way to victory. After host University of the Cumberlands opened an early lead, the Tigers (28-11, 11-6) scored five runs in each the sixth and seventh innings to cruise 11-3.

The Patriots (13-28, 5-16) held the prolific GC offense to just six hits and one run in the first through fifth innings. However, with five outs left the bats came to life. Georgetown pounded out nine hits and scored a dime for the team's 28th win of the season. It is coach Thomas Thornton's 11th 28-plus win season at the helm of the Tigers.

Katie Young got it going with a bunt single with one out in the sixth. Corrin Robinson ended the rally as GC sent nine hitters to the plate. In the process, Hannah Howes, Chelsae Osborn and Kara Howard singled and Chaselyn Allgeier doubled. Sydney Goyette provided a sacrifice fly for a few more runs as well.

Alli Watson got it going in the seventh with a bunt single. Young blasted a double. Allgeier bunted and the onslaught was on again. Four more hits and a few more UC errors to give Hannah Morton more than enough cushion on the mound.

Morton picked up the win in her two and two-thirds innings of work. She improves to 8-1 this season. The sophomore gave up one hit, a two-out, seventh inning single, struck out four and walked two.
