GW Drops a Tough One Versus Lafayette to Open Rebel Games
Colgate Brings the Wood in Game Two
March 17, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington Colonials Softball team lost their opener at the Rebel Games to Lafayette, 5-4. GW was comfortably ahead 4-1 in the fifth until a controversial catcher interference call erased a double play, and helped Lafayette to a four-run inning. Game two of the day saw Colgate put on an offensive display that led to a 12-3 win.
In the first game, freshman Elana Meyers (Douglasville, GA/Lithia Springs) pitched effectively over seven innings giving up only one earned run. She went 1-4 for the game with an RBI and a stolen base.
Sophomore Ruthie Aerts (Boonton Twp., NJ/Mountain Lakes) gave GW a lift on offense by going 1-3 with a stolen base and two runs scored. Senior Sammi Sordi (Boothwyn, PA/Chichester) tallied the other hit for GW, who were the benefactors of three Lafayette errors during their three-run fifth inning. But, the Colonials were unable to mount a comeback and fell 5-4.
In game two of the day, Colonial pitchers were roughed up to the tune of 12 runs and 13 hits and were unable to stretch the game to the full length as the game finished, 12-3.
Colgate had an impressive second inning where they tallied back-to-back-to-back homeruns, which helped them stretch the lead to 9-0 after the second inning. The Colonials broke through in the top of the fourth by scoring three runs, but they couldn't manage any more offense as the game ended after the top half of the fifth.
The Colonials will look to break into the win column tomorrow, March 18, when they face Wisconsin-Green Bay and Fairleigh Dickinson in day two of their trip to the Rebel Games.
