IRVING, Texas – The Centenary softball team dropped a doubleheader on Sunday afternoon at the University of Dallas. The Ladies (5-7, 2-6 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference) were edged 3-2 in the opener of the day before falling 10-1 in the finale.

The Maroon and White’s offense was stymied on the afternoon as it amassed just 10 hits in the twinbill along with a .229 batting average. Raney Bryant garnered three hits on the day while Emily Sexton grabbed two to total half of the Ladies’ offensive production in the doubleheader.

Trailing 3-1 in the opener, the squad attempted a rally in the final at-bat as Lizzie Moran’s RBI-bunt single scored Bryant to nip the deficit to a run, but the effort was cut short and UD picked up the victory.

Michelle Tasin placed the Ladies on the board first in the outing with a RBI double that scored Bryant and knotted the contest at 1-all. The Crusaders answered with a pair of runs in the bottom half of the inning to reclaim the lead.

Melanie Wilson (3-2) took the loss in the circle with 4.0 innings of work and allowed two runs – both earned - on seven hits. Haley Miller tossed the final 2.0 frames and allowed a run on three hits with a pair of strikeouts and a walk.

In the finale, Dallas jumped on the board early to garner the nine-run win. The Blue and White scored six runs in its first three trips to the dish and added four insurance runs in the fifth and sixth frames.

Centenary’s lone run in the contest as Anna Dunn scored on a groundout by Elizabeth LaFisca in the top of the sixth.

Laura Perilloux (1-5) tossed 2.1 frames in the loss. The sophomore allowed five runs – all earned - on five hits with a walk. Miller pitched the final 3.1 innings and surrendered five runs – all earned - on four hits with two walks and a strikeout.

Centenary returns to action on Saturday, March 21 as the Ladies host Southwestern in a SCAC weekend, four-game series. First pitch is slated for 12 p.m.
