Softball splits two with Kilgore College
The Murray State College Lady Aggies softball team split a double header with the Kilgore College Rangers on Wednesday, September 17th. The Aggies scored first in the top of the 3rd with a three-run home run by sophomore Meagan Blake. With Aggies freshman Jordan Dabney pitching and an almost flawless defense, the Rangers could only string together two runs in the 4th and one run in the sixth inning. Murray State College defeated Kilgore College with a 3-4 win with McKenzie Clapp (sophomore) scoring the winning run in the 7th inning.
In game two MSC scored first again with Morgan Tice crossing the plate in the first inning, but the Rangers answered back with three runs in the 2nd. The Aggies tied it up in the 3rd, but Kilgore was able to manage one more run in the 7th inning. In the bottom of the seventh Bryanne Knox (sophomore) made a diving attempt to steal home on a pass ball to tie the game, but was just shy of the plate ending in a nail biting 4-3 victory for Kilgore College with a 4-3 win. MSC pitching in game two was split between freshmen Stephanie McKee and Allie Saunders.
The Aggies softball team next plays at home on Saturday, September 27th at 1:00 versus Mid-American Christian University.
