FULTON, MO -- The William Woods softball team lost game one in heartbreaking fashion 2-1 in 11 innings, however, the team got together and won game two 5-1, ending their three game losing streak.

The Owls gained a 1-0 lead in the top of the third inning, as Sydnae Hatton led the inning off reaching base on a bobble by third-baseman Courtney Neff. Hatton was able to score three batters later on a single by Illissa Facchini, giving the Owls an early one run lead.

The team continued to hold their one run lead thanks to starter MacKenzie Bowden, but the Lady Trojans were able to tie things up 1-1, as Neff hit a two out single to get things started. Taylor Lewis was up next and she ripped a double to left, scoring Neff, tying the game and forcing extra innings.

The game continued to stay 1-1, until the bottom of the 11th, as second-baseman Lewis hit a sacrifice fly to left field, scoring Danielle Stackhouse who reached base earlier in the inning, ending the game and giving HLG the 2-1 victory.

Bowden threw 10 2/3 innings which was her longest outing on season allowing two runs (one earned), on three hits and had a season high 16 strikeouts, on 123 pitches. Kachina Hudson also went the distance for the Lady Trojans, allowing six hits, one run, throwing 166 pitches in over 11 innings pitched. The Owls totaled six hits on the afternoon, with six different batters having at least one hit.

In game two, the Owls again got on the board first, as Shelby LeCuru hit a one out single and was able to advance to third on Facchini's single to right-center. On the play, LeCuru was able to cross home plate, after a bobble Erin Morrison, giving the team a 1-0 lead.
In the home half of the second inning, William Woods scored four runs on three hits getting RBI from Kacey Scharnhorst, LeCuru, Facchini and Kristy Pluchinski taking a 5-0 lead, which was more than enough for starter Becca Schemmer.

The Huntsville, Mo., native threw a complete game five hitter, allowing just one run and striking out two. Shelby LeCuru led the offense going 3-for-4 with one run scored and one RBI. The 1-4 hitters of the Owls offense had at least one RBI.

The team moves their record to 7-9 overall (1-3 AMC) and will be back in action on Tuesday in front of the home crowd against conference rival Columbia College. First-pitch is set for 2:00 p.m.
