Last Tuesday, the Georgetown College Softball team came back against MSC opponent Campbellsville University. At one point during the matchup, the Tigers were down 4-2 with only two innings left in the game.
No. 20 Campbellsville (31-12 overall, 19-4 MSC) fell to Georgetown College (28-11 18-7) after GC heated up on offense, and Cassidy Taylor tied up the game with a base hit that cleared the bases. Taylor Shaw brought Taylor home for the win. Several different players were very productive at the plate. Shelby Engle, Madelyn Brown and Cassidy Taylor went three out of three for the day. Taylor was quite impressive and had four RBI, while both Engle and Taylor scored a run.
Georgetown was able to get the job done and shut down their opponents in the seventh inning, as their offense was able to rally behind pitcher Kayla Williams. She allowed seven hits and four runs, while striking out three batters. The Tigers were able to score four runs in the sixth inning, after not scoring a run since the second inning.
The Tigers’ coach, Thomas Thornton, knew his team was doing good things, but they just weren’t getting the results until later in the game. “We were ready to battle and defend our home field. Good things were happening, but we just weren’t stringing them together. We did that in the sixth,” (georgetowncollege-athletics.com) the GC coach said.
There was going to be a second game, but the game was postponed until the 23rd, because the field umpire came under the weather. The regular season was supposed to end Monday, but it’s been approved for GC and CU to finish their game, due to the unusual circumstance.
