WILMORE - Asbury University softball picked up a convicing 10-6 win over Carlow (Pa.) in the second of two games Friday night in River States Conference play. They dropped a close 11-9 conference in the first of the two games. Saturday included two games with Point Park (Pa.) to continue conference play and the Eagles came up on the losing end of both of those.
The games against Carlow included the biggest offensive outputs of the season. Nine runs for the Eagles came way of a three two-RBI days from Deana Philips, Sarah Woolums, and Kamry Wells. Amara Wylie and Alex Ledford pitched in to pick up one RBI each.
Philips ended the day with a 3-for-4 outing at the plate, as did Ledford.
Philips continued her stellar play in the second game to help lift AU to a 10-6 win over the Celtics in that game. Again the freshman went 3-for-4 at the plate with two RBIs. Jade Montoya and Kendall Anderson got on the RBI bandwagon and picked up a team and game-high three RBIs each. Ledford and Woolums each added another RBI each.
As a team the Eagles picked up six doubles in the contest to help Courtney Patton pick up the win from inside the circle. She went the distance and picked up two strikeouts while walking just two in seven innings.
AU came up short in two games with Point Park on Saturday losing 5-0 and 5-1 in those contests.
They'll return to action on Tuesday when they host Alice Lloyd (Ky.).
