St. Mary-of-the-Woods sweeps Rose-Hulman in softball doubleheader

TERRE HAUTE — St. Mary-of-the-Woods took advantage of its opportunities to defeat visiting Rose-Hulman 6-1 and 8-6 in a college softball doubleheader Thursday.

In the first game, the host Pomeroys scored twice in the bottom of the first inning. Shelby Barnett led off with a double and Kelsey Rosselli reached on a bunt single. On an aborted double-steal attempt, Barnett was picked off at third base for the first out.

But that didn’t stop the Pomeroys.

The next batter, Shelby Turner, singled and advanced to second on a throw home from the outfield, even though Rosselli stayed at third. Then Sara Goelz singled to right-center field to send home Rosselli and Turner.

The Engineers tallied their only run of the contest in the second when Alyse Mueller took a Goelz pitch over the right-center fence for a home run.

The fourth turned out to be St. Mary-of-the-Woods’ big inning. After Barnett reached on an infield fielding error and the first out, Turner and Goelz singled to load the bases. Libby Wright then grounded into a forceout, leaving the bases still loaded for right-handed Carly Painter with two outs.

Painter deposited a Brianne Widmoyer pitch over the right-center fence for a grand-slam homer that increased the home team’s lead to 6-1, where it remained for the rest of the game.

“Carly’s a low-ball hitter and that’s exactly where the pitch was — down around her knees,” Woods coach Gary Rodgers pointed out. “It came at a great, opportune time for us … We’re thankful for those four runs.”

Keep in mind that Wright’s forceout — one batter before Painter — would have been the third out of the inning if not for the error that enabled Barnett to reach base.

“No complaints from me,” Rodgers said, adding that he’s been on the opposite end of similar situations in the past.

“That [grand slam] kinda put the nail in the coffin, so to speak,” Rose coach Brian Shearer admitted. “I think our girls played well. All year, we’ve been struggling defensively. Defensively, we played pretty well in that first game. We only committed the one error … and it happened to be the one to come back and bite us.”

Four Rose-Hulman batters — Carly Heibel, Widmoyer, Mueller and Samantha Springer — posted two hits apiece in the opener.

Goelz picked up the victory with four strikeouts and also went 3 for 3 at the plate. Turner ended up 2 for 3.

“Sara is not a real strikeout pitcher, but she’ll usually be around the plate,” Rodgers mentioned. “I thought maybe in the sixth and seventh, she started to struggle a little bit. But as usual, Sara settled herself down and finished strong.”

In the second game, the Pomeroys racked up four runs in the first, starting with a Goelz double to plate Rosselli. The hosts manufactured three more runs with consistent batting, scoring on three straight singles.

The Engineers answered quickly, scoring five runs in the second, powered by a three-run double from Heibel. Lindsey Watterson singled to bring home Springer and Jenna Martinek also scored off a single by Jessica Ahlborn to provide the other two runs.

Rose added a another run in the third to take a 6-4 lead when Martinek singled home Mueller.

But The Woods scored two runs in the fifth and two in the sixth to seize the victory.
