Georgetown College softball battled in the consolation bracket starting Friday afternoon in Bowling Green, Ky. The defending Mid-South Conference champions advanced to the semifinals with a 7-1 win over University of Pikeville, but stranded a lot of runners in a loss to Campbellsville University later that night.
The Tigers finish 18-18. They averaged seven runs per game this season and had an offensive onslaught that was eye-popping to say the least during the early portion of the season.
That firepower was evident against UPike (20-18) as Georgetown scored all seven runs in the first two innings. The team batted around in the bottom of the first for five runs and pushed across two more to seal the win.
Georgetown College softball scored two runs to cut into Lindsey Wilson College's early lead of the Mid-South Conference tournament semifinals. However, the No. 6 Blue Raiders (43-6) responded right back to put the Tigers (17-17) into Friday's consolation bracket with a 9-3 win late Thursday.
Action begins 3 pm EST as GC takes on University of Pikeville (20-18). Georgetown won three of the four games this season against the Bears.
A little small ball from Emily Snow got the Tigers going in the top of the fourth trailing 3-0. Shelby Engle roped a double into deep right center field, scoring Snow easily. Sandy Young's single and a bobble by the LWC defender plated Engle.
This is as close as it got. The Blue Raiders switched pitchers. Rachel Simms laid down a sacrifice bunt that moved Young into scoring position, but a strikeout from Marissa Massie ended the threat.
Georgetown College softball got back to destroying the ball in the quarterfinals of the Mid-South Conference Tournament Thursday afternoon. The Tigers (17-16) sent 13 hitters to the plate in the first inning and blasted the game out of competition in a 9-1 mercy-rule win over Cumberland University (12-31).
Shelby Engle was an at-bat away from attempting for the cycle. The junior had a single, double and a triple with three RBIs and a run scored. She brought in the first run with a single to score Chaselyn Allgeier, who started the bottom of the first with a walk. Engle then came in to score the winning run off an RBI walk by Rachel Simms.
