Softball Drops A Pair to Francis Marion
SALISBURY, NC -- Francis Marion swept a softball doubleheader from host Catawba on Sunday afternoon at Whitley Field. The Patriots won by the scores of 9-1 and 7-2 to improve to 12-4 on the season. The Catawba Indians fall to 8-4.
The Patriots pounded out 16 hits in winning the opener. Francis Marion took the lead in the second inning with a four-run outburst which was capped by a three-run homer by Monica Wofford (Myrtle Beach, SC).
That was enough support for Michaela Wolf (Littleton, CO), who allowed just four hits and one unearned run with six strikeouts. Kathryn Geouge (Canton, NC/Pisgah HS) drove home the lone run for Catawba in the fifth.
Wofford added another homer in the seventh and collected four hits in the opener. Melanie Bisek (Oregon, WI) had three hits.
Catawba led 2-1 after three innings of game two. Geouge scored in the first after singling and stealing second when Jessie Whitesides’ (Yadkinville, NC/Homeschooled) single to right was misplayed. Geouge scored in the third on a wild pitch.
Francis Marion tied the game in the fourth on single by Bisek then broke the game open in the fifth when it scored five times with two outs. Jessica Birchmeier (Port Richey, FL) broke the deadlock with a two-run double on a 3-2 pitch. Allie Aleman (Santa Ana, CA), Bisek and Wolf each followed with run-scoring singles.
Bisek and Wofford each added two more hits in the nightcap. Bisek also picked up the win as she pitched the complete game, scattering eight hits and allowed one earned run. Geouge and Whitesides each had three hits for Catawba in game two.
