Colonials Fall in a Close Single Game Match-up to Towson
March 24, 2010
WASHINGTON - The George Washington softball team briefly stepped out of Atlantic 10 play to host Towson on Wednesday afternoon at the Mount Vernon Softball Field. The Colonials fell 2-1 to the Tigers in the tough match-up.
In the third, the Colonials threatened to score again when Lauren Wilson drew a two-out walk. She advanced to third off a Terrazas hit, but the two were left stranded.
The second time through the line up, Towson struck in the fourth putting up a run on two hits and two errors.
Both the teams were unable to get a runner past second base until the top of the sixth when Towson's Mindy Bean led off the inning with a double to left center. Bean moved up to third on a passed ball and scored the winning run when Brianna Jones singled to right field.
GW starter Kara Clauss went six and one-third innings in the loss. She struck out five and walked one. Heidi Penna came into the game in the seventh inning with the bases loaded and one out. She shut the door on the Tigers, getting the next to batters to ground out.
The Colonials (4-13, 1-1 A-10) are at home this weekend to host A-10 opponent Rhode Island in a single game match-up on Friday, Mar. 26 at 3 p.m. and on Saturday, Mar. 27 at noon. On Sunday, No. 24 Massachusetts comes to town for a double header beginning at noon at Mount Vernon Softball Field.
