Vikings battle to doubleheader split with Marian

Posted on: April 22nd, 2010 by Joseph Vanden Acker

The Lawrence University softball team battled back to win the first game and split a nonconference doubleheader with Marian University on Thursday at Whiting Field.

Lawrence won the opener 11-10, and Marian broke open a close game late to win the nightcap 7-1.

Emily Perish went 3-for-4 and drove in four runs in the opener to pace Lawrence (14-12). Alex Goodson went 3-for-3 for the Vikings.

Shannon Murray went the distance to pick up the win in the opener. She struck out two and walked one and allowed only three earned runs.

Perish had a two-run single in the first to help Lawrence jump out to a 3-0 lead. The Sabres (16-13) then exploded for seven runs in the second, highlighted by Ashley Engler’s two-run homer.

Lawrence came right back and tied it at 7-7 with four runs in the bottom of the second. Cathy Kaye and Gaelen Lombard-Knapp both hit solo homers in the inning, and Murray and Perish had run-scoring singles.

Marian came back to take a 9-7 lead in the top of the fourth, but the Vikings scored three times in the bottom half of the inning. Courtney Steile hit her first collegiate homer, a three-run blast, to give Lawrence a 10-9 lead.

The Sabres tied it at 10-10 in the fifth, but the Vikings took the back for good in the bottom of the fifth. Katie Simonson was hit by a pitch to start the inning and moved to second on Goodson’s single. Perish then singled up the middle to score Simonson for an 11-10 lead.

Murray then worked around a lead-off single by Marian in the sixth, and the Sabres had runners at second and third with two outs in the seventh. Murray struck out Jenna Whitehead to end the game.

In the nightcap, Cherise Waltz went the distance and allowed only four hits to pick up the win.

The Sabres broke a 1-1 tie with three runs in the sixth, highlighted by Emilie Jansen’s two-run homer. Marian added three more runs in the seventh to seal the win. Maria Archie hit a solo homer in the seventh, and Jansen added a run-scoring double.

Whitehead went 3-for-4 with a pair of RBIs to pace Marian in the second game.
