Box Score

WASHINGTON - For the third consecutive game the Georgetown University softball team ended up on the losing end of a 3-1 final score. This was their second time falling to Saint Joseph's at the East Carolina Tournament in Greenville, N.C. Additional games were to be played on Sunday but due to inclement weather the rest of the tournament has been cancelled.

Once again the Hoyas had solid pitching performances from Lauren O'Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) and Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake), combining to allow only four hits in seven innings. Two of the three runs they allowed came in the second inning on a Saint Joseph's two-run homerun off of O'Leary.

Also for the third consecutive game the offense could only manage three hits against their opponent. The biggest hit of the day for Georgetown came in the sixth inning when Hannah Slovacek (Austin, Texas/Westlake) drove in fellow junior Elyse Graziano (Floral Park, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy) from second with a single for her team leading second RBI of the season. Graziano's run made the score 3-1, answering the run that Saint Joseph's scored in the top of the inning. Slovacek would make it to third but was left stranded on base. Georgetown would get a runner on base in the seventh inning but could not turn it into a scoring opportunity.

The Hoyas head back to Washington a day earlier than expected and will use the extra time to practice for their upcoming tournament next weekend in Spartansburg, S.C. The team is scheduled to play four games in three days at the USC Upstate Tournament.
