Softball Splits With Newberry

NEWBERRY, SC -- Catawba and host Newberry split a South Atlantic Conference softball doubleheader on Friday afternoon at the NC Softball Field.  Newberry won the opener 6-3, while the Catawba Indians took a 4-3 win in game two.  The Lady Indians move to 27-14 overall and 4-4 in the SAC, while Newberry is 24-8 and 4-4.

Catawba jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the opener on Allie Marshall’s (Pleasant Garden, NC/SW Guilford HS) 12th home run of the season.  Kathryn Geouge (Canton, NC/Pisgah HS) was hit by a pitch to start the game and Carly Sabat (Warren, OH/Howland HS) walked before Marshall connected on a three-run shot. 

Newberry got two of those runs back in the first on a two-out double by Sara Powell.  Powell’s hit just eluded a diving Sabat, as her catch was ruled a trap.  The hosts went on top in the second as Jessica Reid drew a based-loaded walk and Felicia Taylor hit a sacrifice fly.

Amanda Huckestein made those runs hold up as she came in after the three run homer by Marshall and allowed just one hit the rest of the way.  She walked two and struck out nine.  Powell and Chelsea Chipoletti each collected two hits for Newberry.  Mollie Kovalcin (Latrobe, PA/Greater Latrobe HS) had the other hit for Catawba on a two-out single in the fourth.

A two-out Newberry error led to the initial Catawba run of the nightcap.  Brittney Thornburg (Kings Mountain, NC/Kings Mountain HS) made the miscue pay, following with a RBI single.  The Lady Indians got the rest of their runs in the second as Sabat had a run-scoring single and Marshall plated two more.

Newberry struck for three runs of its own in the third, the lone scores off Catawba starter Kelsie Hudson (Mechanicsville, VA/Lee-Davis HS).  Newberry got three two-out hits to do the damage.  Taylor had a two-run single and Huckestein singled home the final run.  

Hudson was solid from there, sitting down the final nine she faced to earn the complete game and improve to 8-2.  She scattered seven hits and struck out one.  Huckestein allowed five hits and three earned runs in the loss and struck out four more.  Her record now stands at 14-4. 

Jessie Teague had the lone two-hit day for Newberry in the nightcap.  Sabat had two hits for the Lady Indians.
