A combination of hot hitting and strong pitching helped the LSU Eunice softball team to a Friday afternoon doubleheader sweep over visiting St. Charles Community College, winning game one 12-0 before a 7-0 victory in the second game.
"Our pitchers did excellent; they threw a lot of strikes and were ahead in the counts and had a lot of strikeouts," head coach Andy Lee said.
"Offensively I thought we saw the ball well. A lot of doubles and squared up balls. We had a lot of opportunities with runners in scoring position and we didn't leave runners on like we did the other day," he added.
The Lady Bengals (10-2) scored six runs in the opening inning of game one, more than enough support for starter Julienne Broussard, who tossed three shutout innings and allowed just one hit with five strikeouts and zero walks.
LSU Eunice added three runs in the second inning and three more in the fourth for the final score in the five inning contest.
Kelsey Hollier led the way with a 2-for-2 batting line, connecting on a pair of singles, bringing home two RBI and also scoring twice.
Seven other Lady Bengals each registered one hit, with Brooke Clark collected two RBI. Brooke Ort, Codi Covington, Randi Vosburg and Pam Wainwright each finished with a hit and an RBI, while Ali Jung collected an RBI on a bases loaded walk, as she officially finished 0-for-0 at the plate with two walks.
Elizabeth Delafield came on and tossed the final two innings for LSU Eunice, allowing a hit while striking out a batter in relief.
Game two saw start Brooklynn Gulliot strike out 10 of the 15 total batters she faced, allowing just one hit and zero walks for the win.
Jung tossed an easy final inning in relief to close out the game.
Emily Nolan, Ashley Subervielle, Ort and Clark each finished with two hits in the second game, with Clark collecting three RBI and Ort, Nolan and Subervielle each driving in an RBI of their own.
Hollier added an RBI single for her lone hit of the second game, while Morgan Tauzin also registered a hit for the Lady Bengals.
LSU Eunice turns around and hosts Baton Rouge Community College tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. before another matchup with St. Charles, scheduled for a 2 p.m. first pitch.
Both games tomorrow can be seen on Bengal All-Access.
