PEMBROKE, NC -- Catawba won game two of a softball doubleheader to gain a split with host UNC Pembroke on Sunday afternoon at LRA Field.  UNCP held on for a 6-5 win in the opener, while Catawba pounded the Braves for a 12-2 victory in game two.  The Catawba Indians stand at 6-5 on the season, while UNCP is 5-8.

Catawba fell behind early in game one.  UNC Pembroke scored five times in the first and added another run in the second for a 6-0 advantage.  The big blow was a first-inning grand slam by Brea Hartley.

The Lady Indians chipped away at the deficit.  Catawba scored three times in the fourth on a RBI double from Sydney Hyder (Asheboro, NC/SW Randolph HS) and a two-run double by freshman Gina Gerone (Brooklyn, NC/Madison HS). 

Hyder and Gerone also drove in runs in the fifth to cut the margin to 6-5, but Carley Tysinger (Lexington, NC/C. Davidson HS) lined out to the pitcher with the bases loaded to end the frame.  Mollie Kovalcin (Latrobe, PA/Greater Latrobe HS) walked to open the seventh and got to third with two outs, but the Lady Indians could not push across the tying run.

Amanda Terry (Cordova, NC/Richmond Sr. HS) had two hits and scored twice for Catawba. Hyder had two RBI and Gerone three.  Shelby Holland had three hits for the Braves.

Tysinger improved to 5-0 with the win in game two.  She allowed one earned run over seven innings, scattering four hits and striking out a dozen.  Gerone had three hits and three more RBI, while Tara Gibbs (Waynesville, NC/Tuscola HS) also drove in three runs.

Catawba jumped out quickly as Gibbs and Tysinger had two-run doubles in the first.  Gerone singled home a run in the sixth to stretch the lead to 7-2 then plated two in a five-run seventh that blew the game open.  Hyder and Holli Chandler (New London, NC/N. Stanly HS) had two hits for Catawba.  Hartley had two of the four UNCP hits.

The Lady Indians will next host Barton on Wednesday afternoon at Whitley Field.  The doubleheader starts at 1:30 p.m.
