NEW CASTLE, Del. - - The Georgian Court softball team remained unbeaten in Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference play by sweeping Wilmington on Tuesday, 13-1 and 11-2, at Asbury Field.

The Lions (21-3, 14-0 CACC) used big innings to get by the Wildcats (10-12, 10-6 CACC), scoring eight runs in the fifth of game one and scored all 11 runs in the fourth inning of game two.


The day started by Georgian Court scoring two runs in the top of the first inning, picking up a walk with the bases loaded and scoring on bloop single into right on a drawn in infield.

The Wildcats tried to answer in the bottom of the first, getting a leadoff single by Haley Downin and a runner to second with only one out. Lauren Lopez chopped one through the left side and into left field, but Sara Miller was thrown out at the plate trying to score from second base.

Alexandra Ballester left runners on third base in the second and third innings, and the offense cut the score in half in the bottom of the third.

It was Haley Downin again that sparked the inning with a single inside the third base bag. Now with runners on first and third, Lauren Lopez attempted a squeeze bunt, but the Georgian Court starter Samantha Fohrman jumped on the bunt and glove flipped it home to get Downin at the plate. Annie Davila walked to load the bases and Alyssa Velasquez hit a long foul ball down the left field line which was caught, but deep enough to score Miller from third to bring the score to 2-1.

But the Lions answered with two out magic in the fourth, getting an two-out RBI single back up the middle, and a two run double over the glove of Courtney Dellinger in left center to make it 5-1.

Dellinger singled up the middle to start the bottom of the fourth but Fohrman retired the next three batters to quiet the Wildcats.

The Lions then put the game away in the top of the fifth, using 10 hits to score eight runs to enforce the mercy rule.

Haley Downin, Lauren Lopez, and Courtney Dellinger finished game one with two hits each.


The Wildcats jumped on top of the Lions in game two, scoring first with their first at bats.

Haley Downin started the inning with a double to left center, but was still there on second with two outs. Annie Davila then high a high pop up to second and miscommunication allowed the ball to land for an RBI double. Alyssa Velasquez then roped a liner to center, but the ball popped out of the glove of the center fielder and the Wildcats led 2-0.

Downin allowed a single in the first, a walk in the second, and a two-out single in the third, but left them all stranded to keep the Wildcats in front, 2-0, after three innings.

But the Lions' bats came alive in the top of the fourth, as they used eight hits and four walks, including a pair of two-run homers by Elisa Lopez, to score 11 runs and take command of the game.

Downin, Lopez, Davila, and Dellinger accounted for the four WilmU hits in game two.


The Wildcats host cross-town rival Goldey-Beacom on Thursday as they look to snap a four-game losing streak. The first pitch is slated for 2:30 p.m. at Asbury Field.
