Box Score

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University softball team (15-22, 0-5 BIG EAST) dropped a doubleheader against DePaul (20-12, 4-1 BIG EAST) at Guy Mason Field this afternoon by a score of 4-0 in each game. The Hoyas remained in striking distance for the duration of both contests, with the Blue Demons taking advantage of offensive opportunities.

In game one DePaul scored four runs in the first inning and held on to the lead for the next six. After a single to left to drive in one runner, Mary Connolly slammed a three-run shot to left.

Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) recovered to allow just two hits for the Blue Demons for the remainder of game one. The freshman allowed one walk and threw two strikeouts.

Five different Hoyas recorded a hit in game one, including Hyson, Shikara Lowe (Beaverton, Ore./Jesuit), Mackensey Carter (Mission Viejo, Calif./Mission Viejo), Elyse Graziano (Floral Park, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy), and Hannah Slovacek (Austin, Texas/Westlake).

Georgetown looked poised to get some momentum going their way in the bottom of the sixth. With Lowe on third and Jordan Hansen (Omaha, Neb./Millard West) on second, Cara Savarese (Syosset, N.Y./Syosset) nearly loaded the bases with two outs on a close call at first.

In game two DePaul’s Kirsten Verdun hit a two-run shot in the top of the third. Freshman pitcher Lauren O’Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) held the Blue Demons to just three hits prior to the final inning when DePaul scored two more runs.

“I thought we played hard, we competed,” said Georgetown softball head coach Pat Conlan. “DePaul got the clutch hits when they needed them. I liked the way we played. We have to bring that same effort every day.”

The Hoyas will get another shot at DePaul tomorrow at Guy Mason Field. The final game of the series is scheduled for 11 a.m.
