RESULTS VS. LENIOR-RHYNE COLLEGE (2009-02-21 00:00:00)

Misenheimer, NC – The Pfeiffer softball team dropped both games of a doubleheader against non-conference foe Lenoir-Rhyne University. The Falcons fell 1-0 in game one and then 4-3 in the late game. Pfeiffer’s overall record is now 9-5, while the Bears improve to 7-1.
The first game of the day was played tight by both teams. Pfeiffer managed only two hits, while Lenoir-Rhyne marked three. In what could be called a pitching duel, Pfeiffer’s Allison Braswell (Asheboro, NC) struck out four batters in 21 at bats and took the loss. Noel Belk (Charlotte, NC) pitched a full seven innings as well, striking out six. Belk tallied the win for the Bears.
Carlee Carpenter (Newton, NC) had the only RBI of the game, scoring Belk in the fourth inning.
Game two saw more action at the plate with Pfeiffer marking six hits and the Bears getting 11. Despite Lenoir-Rhyne getting on the board first with two runs in the second, Pfeiffer responded and tied the game with one run in the third and fourth. A Kylee Nichols (McMinville, OR) double sent Megan McNeill (Robbins, NC) home and Martina Bullard (Godwin, NC) ran in off a Ranzy York (Milton-Freewater, OR) single.
Lenoir-Rhyne tallied a run in the top of the sixth and another in the top of the seventh to put the Bears up by two. Pfeiffer was able to score once more in the bottom of the seventh when Brittany Waldon (Port Orchard, WA) doubled and send Andrea Wagner (Wasseon, OH) home, but it proved not to be enough before the final Pfeiffer batter flied out.
Pfeiffer returns to the diamond on Saturday to host Montreat in a doubleheader starting at 2:00 PM.
