Box Score

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - The Georgetown University softball team (15-24, 0-7 BIG EAST) took an early lead, but fell victim to Pittsburgh's two-run third inning, as the Hoyas fell to the Panthers, 2-1 in game one of a BIG EAST doubleheader at Vartabedian Field on Wednesday afternoon.

Senior designated player Mackensey Carter (Mission Viejo, Calif./Mission Viejo) drove in the Hoyas lone run, while freshman pitcher Lauren O'Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) tossed 6.0 innings, allowing four runs on two hits, while striking out five and walking one.

Georgetown took an early lead, as Taylor Koenig reached on a fielder's choice, moved to second when Shikara Lowe drew a one-out walk and scored on Carter's single to take a 1-0 lead. The Panthers answered in the bottom of the third, as a two-run triple put Pittsburgh in front for good, as the team's held each other scoreless over the last 3.5 innings.
