The East Georgia State College (EGSC) Lady Bobcats Softball Team picked up two wins Tuesday, February 2 in their home opener of 2021 against Brewton-Parker College JV. The Bobcats won game one by a score of 4 to 2 and game two with a score of 13 to 5.
The EGSC Bobcats were led on the mound by Britney Foster who struck out nine batters and allowed just two runs in seven innings of work.
At the plate Alaina Lee, Allana Hooks, Taylor Morgan and Jana Crews provided the Bobcats with run support. Hooks would knock in Lee and Morgan in the sixth inning on a double off the center field fence to break a 2 to 2 tie and give the Bobcats the win at 4 to 2.
In game two the Bobcats fell behind 2 to 0 in the first inning but came storming back in the third inning scoring seven runs.
Sierra Taylor, Jana Crews, Taylor Morgan, Makenzie Wilkerson, Alaina Lee, Allana Hooks, and Stephanie Ruffin all got hits in the inning, and the Bobcats never looked back in route to a 13 to 5 victory.
Madison Bussell got her first win of the season with four innings of work with Payten Strickland closing out the final two innings for the Lady Bobcats who are now 2 and 0 at home.
“We provided great run support for our pitchers Tuesday,” stated the Bobcat’s Head Coach Chuck Wimberly after the victories. “Game one was a pitcher’s duel and Britney Foster did really well holding on and getting the victory for us on the mound. Game two saw our bats come alive and post 13 runs which makes pitching a little easier. Alaina Lee and McKenzie Wilkerson both caught great games for us behind the plate, and Madison Bussell and Payten Strickland may have pitched their best games collegiately. Defensively we made no mistakes and that was key in our victories.”
