Feb. 10, 2013

Box Score

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown softball team played its fifth game in three days and pitcher Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) threw a complete game shutout as the Hoyas went on to defeat Florida International in their last game of the FIU Tournament 2-0 for their first win of the 2013 season.

Georgetown split the weekend series with FIU, losing 4-3 in the first game on Friday. Sunday's game saw the Hoyas take the lead early and never look back, scoring in the first inning for the third time in five games. Freshman Samantha Giovanniello (Floral Park, N.Y./Floral Park Memorial) led off the game with a single up the middle and reached second on a sacrifice bunt. Shikara Lowe (Beaverton, Ore./Jesuit) also singled in the inning and advanced to second following an error that also brought home Giovanniello for the first run of the ballgame. Lowe went 2 for 2 on the day with one walk.

The story of the game however belonged Megan Hyson. The sophomore avenged her last outing against the Golden Panthers on Friday with a three-hit shutout that included four strikeouts and only one walk. Hyson's performance was her fourth career complete game shutout after throwing three her freshman year.

The Hoyas had eight hits on the day including a single to center field by Hannah Slovacek (Austin, Texas/Westlake) that provided an insurance run for Hyson in the fifth inning. Along with the victory it was also the best defensive performance of the season for Georgetown, ending the game error free.

The team returns to Washington, D.C. for a few days of training before heading to East Carolina for another tournament weekend with game play starting Friday, Feb. 15.
