Softball Wins Three Games at Patriot Invitational

Two wins come in final at bat

FLORENCE, SC -- The Catawba softball team picked up three wins in five games over the weekend at the Patriot Invitational, hosted by Francis Marion University at the Freedom Florence Complex.  The Lady Indians rallied for two wins in their final at bat and got a two-hitter from Lindsay Ettinger to knock off Armstrong Atlantic in the opener.

Against Armstrong Atlantic, Ettinger allowed just the two hits with two walks and a pair of strikeouts in the first blanking of the Pirates this season.  Allie Marshall got the ladies on the board with a two-out, three-run homer in the third inning.  Jacqueline White pushed the lead to 5-0 with a two-run double in the sixth.

On Saturday, Catawba lost its first game 9-7 to UNC-Pembroke.  The Braves scored four runs in the first and held the lead from there.  Marshall got two runs back in the Catawba first with a double and the ladies closed within 7-6 with a four-run fourth.  UNCP scored twice in the seventh to pad its lead.

Catawba rallied for a 5-4 win over Coker in its third game of the tourney.  White’s two-out, two-run double scored Kathryn Geouge and Jessie Whitesides with the game-winning runs.  Geouge had tied the game at 3-3 in the fifth with a two-run homer.  Tiffany Farley got the win in relief, tossing four innings and allowing just one unearned run on two hits.

The Lady Indians defeated Kutztown 8-7 in eight innings on Sunday morning, scoring six times in the bottom of the eighth for the win.  Jenn Mehl tied the game with two outs in the seventh with a RBI double, but the Bears seemed to have put the game away by scoring five runs in the eighth.  Brittany Thornburg ended the dramatic comeback with a run-scoring single.  Marshall had tied the game with a two-run single.

Catawba fell 8-4 to West Virginia Wesleyan in the final game.  Marshall and Sarah VanBuskirk gave Catawba a 2-0 lead with run-scoring singles in the first.  The Jackets broke a 4-4 tie with four runs in the seventh.  Gordy, Marshall and Mehl each had two hits for the Lady Indians. 

Marshall collected 10 RBI for Catawba in the five games, while Whitesides hit .500, going 8-for-16 with three doubles.  Farley picked up decisions in three games, posting a 2-1 mark.
