Softball Drops Two One-Run Games At Carson-Newman

JEFFERSON CITY, Tenn. -- Carson-Newman picked up a pair of wins over visiting Catawba in South Atlantic Conference softball action on Saturday afternoon at The Vick.  The Lady Eagles improve to 20-6 overall and 5-1 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 10-10 and 0-4.

Neither team could break through on the scoreboard in regulation of the opener as Catawba's Caroline Turner (Kenly, N.C./N. Johnston HS) and Lady Eagle Sarah Howard put up zeros over seven frames.  In the top of the eighth, the Lady Indians had two on with no outs, but Howard got an out a third on a sacrifice attempt then two more groundouts to end the frame.

Carley Tysinger (Lexington, N.C./C. Davidson HS) took over for Turner in the bottom half of the eighth and Cassie Lyons went to third on a wild pitch.  Talisa Fiame followed with a sacrifice fly to give C-N the win.  Howard (3-1) picked up the victory with eight innings of shutout ball, allowing only two hits with five walks and three strikeouts.

Turner and Natalie Naturile (Thomasville, N.C./E. Davidson HS) had the Catawba hits.  Turner surrendered just one hit with two walks and three strikeouts in her seven innings in the circle.  Elayna Siebert had the lone hit for the Lady Eagles.

Carson-Newman rallied for a game two win.  After falling behind 6-1, the Lady Eagles tied the game in the third and got the winning run on a leadoff home run, and the second of the game by Siebert, to start the C-N fifth.

Down a run to start the third, the Lady Indians pushed across six runs with two outs to grab the lead.  Taylor Adams (Smithfield, N.C./N. Johnston HS) plated the tying run by drawing a bases loaded walk.  Naturile and Gina Gerone (Brooklyn, N.Y./Madison HS) singled home runs then Delane Smith (Wake Forest, N.C./Wake Forest HS) singled home two more.  A Holli Chandler (New London, N.C./N. Stanly HS) base hit got the final run of the inning home.

Carson-Newman came right back in the bottom half of the third.  Bre Lockett tripled home two runs and Siebert capped the inning on a two-run homer.  Catawba had only two more hits after the third inning outburst.

Siebert drove in three runs on three hits with the two homers for C-N in game two.  Lockett had two hits and two RBI.  Naturile and Smith each had two hits for Catawba.  Lindsay Dean (4-5) got the win in relief for the Lady Eagles.  Turner (4-5) took the loss in relief of Tysinger (6-5) in game two.

Catawba hosts Newberry on Wednesday in another SAC doubleheader at 2 p.m.
