Katie Young came up firing on a one-hop single into the outfield and caught Micah Seibert trying to stretch the hit to a double. It was just such defensive plays that allowed Georgetown College softball to take 10-2 and 5-2 wins over visiting Union College.

"We've been focusing on fielding and doing better on the defensive side, good to know they are listening," said GC coach Thomas Thornton with a smile.

His Tigers improve to 7-3 on the season and take a 3-1 series victory over the Bulldogs (2-7). Game two Kara Howard retired nine straight, including the stellar play that got Seibert off the base paths. Howard started the fifth with a walk, but quickly worked out of that with a sacrifice bunt out followed by a pop up and ground out.

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.

Kara Howard roped a double at the top of the fourth to ignite an offensive explosion host Union College did not recover from in game one on Tuesday. Georgetown College's softball team scored six runs that inning and cruised to a season-opening 10-1 win over the Bulldogs (0-1).

The Tigers (1-0) pounded out 10 hits, more than enough offense for freshman pitcher Audrey Dodd, who started her collegiate career with eight strikeouts. She scattered five hits and walked two in the 21 batters she faced in six innings of work for the win.
