SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – GC softball failed to match the frantic offensive pace of Evangel University on Friday and fell 9-0 at Springfield’s Cooper Sports Complex.
The Panthers again struggled offensively, amassing only three hits and striking out 11 times as a unit. Evangel jumped out to a 3-0 lead after two innings and exploded in the fourth with a six-run effort that sealed the five-inning tilt 9-0.
Receiving no run support, senior Lindsey Schuberth tossed 3.2 innings and surrendered nine runs on seven hits and was dealt the loss in the 9-0 decision.
The Panthers will finalize their 2012 Spring Break road trip tomorrow with a pair of afternoon contests. Game one will feature GC against Wartburg at 1:30, with game two against Evangel scheduled for a 4:00 start.
