Softball Falls Into Loser's Bracked After Opening Loss to Presbyterian at SAC Tournament

CLINTON, SC -- Presbyterian's Erin Stewart (Marion, SC) singled home the winning run with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning to give the fourth-seeded Blue Hose a 3-2 victory over fifth-seeded Catawba in the first game of the 2007 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Softball Tournament on Thursday morning at the PC Softball Complex.  Presbyterian improves to 30-14, while the Catawba Indians fall to 41-18.

The single was the only hit of the day for Stewart and it allowed Stephanie Payne (Myrtle Beach, SC) to score from second base.  Ashley Ford (Marietta, GA) got things going for PC in the inning, double with one out.  Payne entered the game to pinch run for Ford and scored on Stewart’s single.

Catawba scored the first two runs of the game in the top of the fourth inning.  All-SAC first team member Jessie Whitesides (Yadkinville, NC) led off with a double.  Kathryn Geouge (Canton, NC) followed with a bunt single to put runners on the corners.  Presbyterian starting pitcher Paige Cassady (Orlando, FL) threw a wild pitch to score Whitesides and eventually Geouge after an error by PC catcher Laura Tate (Spartanburg, SC).

Presbyterian picked up a run in the bottom of the fourth inning.  Rachel Bailey (Howard, OH) led off with a double and stole third.  She scored on a one-out squeeze bunt by Jessica Peterka (Sarasota, FL).  The Lady Blue Hose tied the game in the sixth on a two-single by Tate.

The two teams only combined for nine hits in the tightly contested game with PC out-hitting Catawba by the tally of 5-4.  Bailey was the only individual in either lineup to acquire multiple hits as she finished the contest 2-for-3 with a run scored.  Cassady picked up the win for PC, striking out eight Catawba batters and improving to 16-7.  Lindsay Ettinger (Pasadena, MD) fell to 22-9 with the loss.  She posted four strikeouts.

Presbyterian will now face the winner of game four that pits top-seeded Lenoir-Rhyne against eighth-seeded Tusculum at 11:45 a.m. on Friday.  Catawba will take on the loser of game four, also at 11:45 a.m. on Friday at the PC Softball Complex.
