Senior Chelsae Osborn led off the bottom of the sixth with a single and came around on a triple from Kara Howard as the go ahead run on senior day. Osborn, a four-year starting walk-on, celebrated senior day with Sydney Goyette in style – a 2-1 win over Kentucky Christian University.
"I've told them, sometimes we've got to win ugly," said GC coach Thomas Thornton. "We played the Knights a few weeks ago in Grayson and they've gotten better as you expect every team as the season goes on. They were ready to play.
"Chelsae had a couple good hits and was on in a key situation. Sydney pressed a little, but defensively made solid plays and sophomore pitcher Hannah Morton came in and played a great game."
Osborn went 2-for-3 with a run scored to finish her home stand as a Tiger with a flourish.
Georgetown College softball split day two with University of Pikeville. The Tigers (31-12, 14-7) used five runs in the third to put game one away, 6-3, but the Bears roared to life to avoid the sweep in game four. The host team hit four home runs and won 11-4.
Two bunts and a walk loaded the bases in the top of the third of game one and the flood gates opened. GC scored five runs on six hits and no UPike (15-27, 7-17) errors. Chaselyn Allgeier led the way with 3-for-3 with a run scored, while Kara Howard went 2-for-2 with an RBI. Chelsae Osborn had a two-RBI double in the third for her lone hit of the game.
Georgetown College softball opened up a close game one Friday with University of Pikeville in the top of the fifth and won 6-2. Game two it was all GC, winning the mercy-rule game 11-1.
Cassidy Janes' highlighted a two run, three hit fifth inning to take a one-run lead to three. The sophomore RBI double drove in Alli Watson. Katie Young and Corrin Robinson also had hits in the inning. The Tigers were also aided by two UPike errors.
Audrey Dodd picked up the win, going five innings. She scattered six hits, allowed two runs and struck out four. Hannah Morton got the save, pitching the final two innings of hitless ball with three strikeouts and no walks.
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.
Georgetown College softball forced Campbellsville University to extra innings. Unfortunately, the Tigers (26-10, 9-5) lost in the eighth, shifting momentum toward the No. 6 Lady Tigers (27-9, 16-0) and a pair of wins 5-4, 9-2.
GC trailed 3-0 in game one until Alli Watson got the offense going. The freshman singled to start the fifth. Hannah Howes drew a one-out walk. They both scored on a two-RBI single by Chaselyn Allgeier. CU added a run in the sixth for a 4-2 lead and with Georgetown down to its final three outs, Watson dug in again.
This time she drew a walk. Lead-off walks are notorious for being key in rallies and despite standing at third with two outs, Watson found a way to score on a fielder's choice. Katie Young, who singled in the inning, also scored on the play when Brittany Rippy dropped the ball.
