Georgetown College softball broke game two of Senior Day wide open with seven runs in the bottom of the fourth, reclaiming the lead for good against Cumberland University. GC won 10-5 to earn the season split with the Bulldogs (11-21, 7-11).
The Tigers (14-10, 11-7) opened up a 3-0 lead in the first inning, but again the long ball from CU erased the deficit. In the top of the third, Kassydi Montgomery hit her 14th home run of the year for a 3-2 game. Jessica Roper followed a few batters later with a two run shot and a 4-3 lead.
Cumberland University scored five runs in the top of the first, highlighted by Sydney Broderick's three-run home run to win 12-6 Saturday over Georgetown College softball. The Tigers (13-10, 10-7) got runs here and there against freshman Leah Newsome, but two runs in the fourth and three more in the sixth put the game away for the Bulldogs (11-21, 7-10).
Kayla Williams made it two-thirds of an inning as CU batted around. Jessica Claxton came in to finish off the first and pitch five more innings. Kara Howard finished it off for Georgetown.
Georgetown College softball has found its once very potent offense become stagnant the past few games, but turned that around Friday evening in the nightcap with Cumberland University. The Mid-South Conference doubleheader was a split on day one. The Tigers (13-9, 10-6) used small ball to push two runs across the board and built a large enough lead for an 8-6 win of game two.
"Sometimes it is just about manufacturing runs," said GC coach Thomas Thornton. "We didn't get to play any games this week so it was a long layoff. We stranded a lot of runners in game one so we just wanted to get out of the gates quickly from the plate."
In the first four innings, Georgetown scored all eight runs with the winning pair coming across in the fourth.
Georgetown College softball rallied and put up four runs in the bottom of the third, but it was not enough as Kassydi Montgomery hit two home runs for a 9-4 Cumberland University win of game one.
The Bulldog third baseman drove a three-run shot to put her team ahead for good in the fourth 5-4. She added a grand slam in the sixth for the final margin of victory.
The Tigers (12-9, 9-6) managed just 10 hits against Leah Newsome. The freshman went the distance, striking out three and walking two.
Georgetown College softball continued to dominate from the plate this past week, going 4-2. Helping the cause was senior Cassidy Taylor. The third baseman earns her first Mid-South Conference Player of the Week honors. This is the second straight week for a Tiger to pick up the weekly honor.
Taylor was 10-for-19, .526, with hits in five of the six games. She had three hits in wins over Shawnee State and Union as well as two hits in the other game with Union.
To open the week, the Lexington, Ky. native went 1-for-3 with five RBIs and one walk. Her lone hit against the Bears in game one was a home run. Georgetown won 7-1 in that game.
