Softball Game One Halted, Set to Resume at 11 a.m.
ELON, N.C. - The Georgia Southern doubleheader against Elon is currently in a rain delay due to a lightning strike. The first game of the doubleheader was halted in the top of the fourth with two outs and a runner on second. The game is set to resume tomorrow at 11 a.m.
The Eagles came out swinging scoring three runs in the first inning. Marie Fogle (Rincon, Ga.) and Robyne Siliga (Oceanside, Calif.) walked with one out before Amanda Hall (Haddock, Ga.) singled, plating Fogle. Sam Russo (Snellville, Ga.) drove in two more runs with a base hit to center.
Brandi Jones led off the bottom half of the first for the Phoenix with a triple and scored on a base knock by Jacqueline Gonzalez. A base running error by Patti Weber allowed Georgia Southern to record two quick outs. Ashlee Crewe flew out to right; and Weber, assuming two outs were already recorded, was rounding third for the plate when Fogle threw her out at first.
The Eagles scored two runs and had another runner thrown out at the plate in the top of the second. Megen Smith (Springfield, Ga.) drove in the two runs with a double to left center.
Elon loaded the bases with two outs in the third inning, but Streetmon struck out Crewe to end the threat.
Nina Iduate (Norcross, Ga.) and Fogle led off the fourth inning with back-to-back base hits before Hall smacked a three-run homer over the wall in center to give the Eagles an 8-1 lead.
A doubleheader is set to follow the conclusion of game one.
