Box Score

WASHINGTON - Georgetown softball (10-17) fell to St. Francis (Pa.) (8-8) 2-1 this morning and lost to Robert Morris (7-11) 1-0 on Friday afternoon.

The Blue & Gray looked to avenge a 1-0 loss suffered on March 10 against St. Francis (Pa.) at the Florida Gulf Coast Tournament. Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Calif./Chesapeake) got Georgetown rolling in the first, advancing to second thanks to a sacrifice fly from Elyse Graziano (Floral Park, N.Y./Sacred Heart), and to third when Shikara Lowe (Beaverton, Ore./Jesuit) popped up to center field.  Hyson was left on base.

St. Francis (Pa.) took the early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first off a home run from Taylor Parsons. The Red Flash returned in the second to score another run off a sacrifice bunt with two runners on base.

Hyson had a solo home run shot of her own in the third inning, making the score 2-1. The Red Flash went five-for-20, while the Hoyas went for two-for-21 at the plate.

Hyson pitched six innings for the Hoyas with five strikeouts.

In the afternoon game Hyson led off with a single to left field, advancing to second before the end of the inning. The Hoyas went cold for three innings before Cara Savarese (Syosset, N.Y./Syosset) ended the hitting drought with a single up the middle in the fifth. Robert Morris had already taken the 1-0 lead.

Savarese hit a single again in the bottom of the seventh to keep Georgetown's hopes alive. Jordan Hansen (Omaha, Neb./Millard West) advanced to first on a fielder's choice to get Cristina Fletcher (White Plains, N.Y./The Ursuline School) out at third.

The loss against Robert Morris marks the eighth time the Hoyas have fallen by one run to an opponent.

Georgetown returns to the UMBC Spring Classic on Sunday for two games against Sacred Heart and Mount St. Mary's on Sunday, March 18. First pitch against Sacred Heart is scheduled for 10:30 a.m.
