WP Lindsey Richardson 10K.  LP Mackensey Carter
High stakes for both teams, each needed a sweep to have a chance of qualifying for next week’s Big East tournament.
Both pitchers played strong offensive roles.  Richardson led off the game with a walk, scored with two out on Savarese’ double.  Richardson led the 3rd with a single; Toscano singled with one out, Medina reached on an error at 2nd, two runs scored.  The Hoyas got on the board in the 5th when Carter jacked a 2-run home run.  A wild pitch and throwing error yielded a final run for the Bulls in the 6th.

South Florida 5,  Georgetown 0
WP Capri Catalano.  LP Jennifer Connell.
Kafalas beat out an infield hit in the 1st, scored on Olnick’s rbi single.  Olnick boosted the score in her next at bat with a home run.  The clincher was supplied by Savarese who jacked a 3-run home run.  (SPY note: try at least once a season to get to that cozy park in Georgetown to watch my alma mater play; in this instance, enjoyed talking to coaches of both teams but also to numerous long-time softball watchers.)
