SEGUIN, Texas – The Ladies scored two runs in the bottom of the first to take a brief 2-1 lead, but the Mountaineers struck for five in the second and never trailed the rest of the way as Centenary (15-25) fell to Schreiner (23-20) 9-6 in an elimination game at the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Softball Tournament.

Trailing 1-0 after the top of the first, the Ladies struck for a pair of runs. With one out, junior Kelsey Ancelot hit an infield single and tied the game on junior Anna Dunn’s two-out single. After Dunn moved up to second and then third on a wild pitch, she scored on freshman Haley Campbell’s two-out hit.

Down 9-4, Centenary scored a pair of runs and brought the tying run to the plate. Senior Mallory Ford began the inning with a walk and advanced to third on Dunn’s double. Groundouts by Campbell and senior Lizzie Moran cut the deficit to three. A walk and an error put the tying run on bases with two outs, but a fielder’s choice ended the game.

Dunn and Campbell, the 3-and-4 hitters, both went 3-for-4 and combined for four runs and four RBI’s. Moran had one hit and two RBI’s in her final collegiate game.

Sophomore Mackenzie Stewart (1-2) took the loss, allowing three hits and four runs (three earned) in an inning of work.

Schreiner scored five runs in the second to take the lead for good in the game. Kaylee Atchley began the inning with a single and advanced to second on a wild pitch. An error on a sacrifice bunt and a fielder’s choice that produced no outs scored a run and put a pair into scoring position. A wild pitch scored the second run, and a walk, stolen base, and a single by Alyssa Maki put Schreiner up 4-2. A sacrifice fly, a passed ball, and a two-out RBI single by Samantha Cordon put the Mountaineers up four, a lead never less than two the rest of the game.

Cordon finished perfect in four at-bats with two RBI’s, while Maki went 3-for-5 with two RBI’s and a run scored. Jessica Vrana (10-11) picked up the win in relief for Schreiner, allowing four hits and three runs in the final 4.1 innings.
