NORMAN, Okla.—The Centenary softball team dropped both of its games on the final day of action in the Worth Invitational hosted by the University of Oklahoma on Saturday. The Ladies fell 11-3 in their morning game with Evansville before losing 11-1 to the fifth-ranked Sooners in the afternoon.

 

Centenary (13-14) could not contain the powerful offenses of either team as the Ladies pitching staff surrendered 17 hits to Evansville in seven innings and 14 hits to Oklahoma in six innings.

 

Evansville (14-3) posted a single run in the second inning on a single and a double, but Centenary tied the score with a run in the bottom of the third. Emerald Doria got on board with an infield single and Allison Shepperd doubled her home to tie the game at 1-1 for the Ladies.

 

The Aces responded with five runs in the fourth on four straight singles, a walk, and a homerun. Evansville then added five more runs in the seventh inning on seven hits and two Centenary errors to put the game out of reach.

 

The Ladies did add two runs in their final at-bat when Dana Davis blasted her first homerun of the season and Doria singled home Amy Wiedeman.

 

In the nightcap, #5 Oklahoma (27-1) wasted no time in jumping out on top with four runs in the first inning. The game started with back-to-back walks to the first two Sooner batters and the third batter launched a three-run homerun.

 

A single followed by another homerun gave Oklahoma two runs in the third frame and the Sooners tacked on five runs in the sixth behind a grand slam.

 

Centenary’s only run came in the fifth when Davis lifted a sacrifice fly to center field to score Lin Virdell, who had reached base on an error by the Oklahoma third baseman.

 

Doria collected three hits in the doubleheader to lead Centenary offensively while Wiedeman was 2-for-3 on the day and Davis added two RBI.

 

The Ladies look to get back to their winning ways when they host Grambling State in a double dip on Tuesday at the Centenary Softball Complex beginning at 5 p.m.
