Softball Title Hopes End After Doubleheader Loss at Wingate
WINGATE, NC -- Wingate swept visiting Catawba in a South Atlantic Conference softball doubleheader on Wednesday afternoon at the Wingate Softball Complex. The Bulldogs claimed wins by the scores of 2-0 and 3-1 to improve to 25-18-1 overall and 7-9 in the SAC. The Catawba Indians fall to 28-16 and 9-7.
Wingate won the opener on a walk off two-run home run from Kayla Saliga in the bottom of the seventh. It came with one out, following a walk to Emily Usiak. That made a winner of Stacey Houser, who limited Catawba to just one hit with a pair of walks and four strikeouts.
The Lady Indians never mounted much of threat offensively in the opener. Twice Catawba got a runner to second, but both times it came with two outs. Emily D. Huneycutt (Oakboro, NC/W. Stanly HS) had the lone hit for Catawba with a leadoff single in the second.
Wingate tallied a run in the opening frame in game two. Kelsey Maffucci, who had two hits in each game, doubled to lead off and scored on a two-out single by Hayley Whitley. A pair of Catawba errors to start the second inning led to a pair of unearned runs on a two-out single by Maffucci.
Amanda Terry (Cordova, NC/Richmond Senior HS) scored Catawba's lone run which came in the third. She reached on an error and came around to score on a single by Tara Gibbs (Waynesville, NC/Tuscola HS).
Houser tossed her second complete game for Wingate to improve to 18-10. She allowed the unearned run off four hits with a strikeout. Brittany Loudermilt also had two hits for Wingate in the second game.
Catawba will close out the regular season as it hosts a doubleheader against Newberry on Saturday at 1 p.m. The Lady Indians will host the SAC Tournament beginning next week.
