Softball battles back for split with Pfeiffer

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba College and visiting Pfeiffer split a softball doubleheader on Monday afternoon at Whitley Field. Pfeiffer took the opener 6-5, while Catawba won game two 5-1. Catawba now stands at 14-34-1, while Pfeiffer is 8-28. Catawba benefitted from an error and two wild pitches to score in the first inning of the opener, while Pfeiffer used a pair of Lady Indian errors to even the score in the second. Catawba would place together five straight hits to take a 2-1 lead after two and scored two more runs in the fourth off Pfeiffer wild pitches to lead 4-1. Pfeiffer would capitalize on a dropped fly ball with two outs in the fifth to plate four unearned runs and take the lead. Following the error, Kristen McVerry (Charlotte Hall, MD) doubled home a run and Emily Goad (Meadows of Dan, VA) followed with a two-run homer to put Pfeiffer on top 5-4. Jenny Volpicelli (Concord, NC) tripled home a run in the sixth for Pfeiffer, which was needed as Jen Ropp (Broadway, VA) doubled home a run with two outs in the seventh for Catawba, but Katie Phelps (Prince Frederick, MD) lined out to right to end the game. All nine Catawba players had a hit in the opener, while Val McDowell (Crofton, MD) had three singles and Ropp a single and double. McVerry and Nicole Baird (Portsmouth, RI) had two hits for Pfeiffer. In the nightcap, Phelps put Catawba on top with a two-out run-scoring double in the second. Jessica Rivera (Key West, FL) and Shannon Handy (Advance, NC) had RBI singles in the fourth to push the Catawba lead to 4-0. Volpicelli tripled home a run in the Pfeiffer fifth for the lone Falcon run. Handy and Liz Corbett (Severn, MD) each had two hits for Catawba. Phelps earned the win for Catawba, scattering four hits with a walk and a strike out. #######
