Softball gets split with Pfeiffer

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba College and visiting Pfeiffer split a doubleheader in softball action on Monday afternoon at Whitley Field. Pfeiffer picked up a 4-3 win in 10 innings to take the opener, while Catawba won game two 6-3. Catawba now stands at 24-21 on the year, while the Falcons are 8-27. Crystal Furmaniuk (Mooresville, NC) started the scoring for Pfeiffer with a two-run homer in the opening inning of the first game. Vivian Lee (Salisbury, NC) hit a sacrifice fly for Catawba in the first inning as the Lady Indians pulled within 2-1. Pfeiffer would get the run back in third as Erin Furness (Greenville, NC) collected a two-out RBI single. A two-out RBI double by Katie Phelps (Prince Frederick, MD) in the fourth and a two-out run-scoring single by Amanda Myers (Lynchburg, VA) in the fifth brought Catawba even at 3-3. Neither team could score in the first two extra frames, Pfeiffer leaving the bases loaded in the eighth and Catawba failing to get a runner home from third with one out in all three innings. Jody McCurdy (Mt. Crawford, VA) singled home the game-winner for Pfeiffer in the 10th inning. McCurdy led Pfeiffer with three hits and earned the win on the mound, tossing all 10 innings and allowed three runs on six hits with eight strikeouts. Stacey Handy (Advance, NC) had three hits for the Lady Indians, while Lindsey Ettinger (Pasadena, MD) took the loss in relief despite allowing just a single unearned run over six innings. Catawba jumped out to a quick 5-0 lead in the nightcap. Benefiting from a Pfeiffer error, Myers and Lee had RBI, while Phelps capped the frame with a three-run homer. Pfeiffer trailed 6-1 heading to the seventh and scored twice, including a RBI double from Furness, before Ettinger came in to retire the final two batters and earn the save. Handy, Lee and Janie Motsinger (Kernersville, NC) collected a pair of hits for Catawba, while Furmaniuk and Furness had two hits for Pfeiffer. Kristen Greenwood (Bel Air, MD) scattered six hits over six and a third innings to get the win for the Lady Indians. #####
