Softball - Sat, Feb. 25, 2017

Georgetown College softball split Saturday games with Purdue University Northwestern. The Tigers (8-4) started the day with a rally win over the Pride, 9-6. Then it was a pitcher's duel that the visitor's clung on for the win, 4-3.

PNW started hot with a two-run homerun in the first inning. However, GC settled down, got the outs and got to work offensively, chipping away at the lead for a 2-2 tie headed to the third. Northwestern (1-1) tallied four in that inning, but GC notched three themselves in the bottom of the frame to stay in the hunt.

Cassidy Janes got the rally going with a lead-off double in the sixth. A pair of singles brought her in for the tie, but then a fielder's choice and a pop out made it seem as though the energy was shifting back to the Pride.

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.

Friday it all started with a narrow loss to No. 15 Davenport University, 8-6, and a huge win over Grace College, 10-5.

The win over MMC was a defensive battle. GC manufactured the first run as Chaselyn Allgeier walked, stole second and scored on Kara Howard's two-out single.

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.
