GEORGETOWN - The Southwestern University softball team split their finale with Centenary on Sunday afternoon, winning game one 9-0 (5) before dropping the finale 3-2 to split the SCAC series at two games a piece.
A three run first inning to go with a six run third as well as a combined one hitter from sophomores Lindsey Longuet and Bailey Meyer gave the Pirates a commanding 9-0 win.

Longuet pitched three innings, allowing only one hit and getting her second win of the season, while Meyer pitched two complete and struck out four.
In the second game, a Scott homerun in the fourth tied the contest at two, but Centenary got a seventh inning go-ahead homer from Hallie Smith to take a 3-2 lead and ultimately split the series.
The Pirate bats were slowed in game two, only coming away with four hits. Scott was 2-for-3 with a double, home run, two runs scores, and a RBI while Copher was 1-for-3 with a RBI.
In her longest outing of the 2018 season, Longuet (2-1) earned her first loss of the season, going seven complete while only allowing one earned run on six hits to go with six strikeouts.
Southwestern goes to 13-9 overall and moves to 3-5 in SCAC play. They return to action this Saturday as they welcome in Austin College for a four game series beginning with a doubleheader at 1 PM.
