On Friday, Mar. 13, the 2015 Eutectic softball team claimed its first conference win of the season on the road over Benedictine University-Springfield, 10-5. First-year pitcher Allie Dewald went 2-4 with a double and a single, while recording the win for the Euts on the mound. She struck out five, walked ten, and gave up seven hits.
The Eutectics never surrendered the lead after scoring three runs in the first inning. The two-run double by Dewald in the third scored second-years Kara Terry and Taylor Craig and contributed to a three-run inning to put the Euts up by six. Then the Bulldogs scored two runs in the bottom of the fifth to close its deficit to 7-3 and pushed two more runs across in the in bottom of the sixth, bringing the score to 7-5. The Eutectics responded with three more in the seventh, and the Bulldogs could find no answer, succumbing to the Euts 10-5 in seven innings.
The second game of the double header did not go quite as well for the Euts as they lost 16-1. Dewald was once again asked to pitch for the Euts since second-year pitcher Bailey Johnson could not make the trip. But, fatigue became a factor for Dewald, who allowed nine runs in two innings, walked seven and struck out one. In the first inning, the Euts pushed across their only run of the game on an error. Terry had the only hit for the Euts and Dewald scored the only run.
The Eutectics are now 1-3 for the season (1-1 in AMC). The team will take time off to enjoy spring break at home before returning to competition on Wednesday, Mar. 25, when they host Lindenwood-Belleville for a double header with games at 3:00 and 5:00 p.m.
