DANVILLE, Ky. — Sydney Goyette parked a Martina Riney pitch in the bottom of the ninth to boost Georgetown past Campbellsville in the finals of the elimination bracket at the MSC Tournament today at Millennium Park.
The 6-5 win was Georgetown's fourth straight over the Lady Tigers and ended a comeback by CU that saw it rally twice from 2-0 and 5-2 deficits.
Georgetown (35-13) used a two-RBI single by Chelsae Osborn in the first inning to stake the Tigers to a 2-0 lead that they would keep for four innings.
Jessica Claxton had a no-hitter until the top of the fifth when Kristin Benton's home run plated Brittany Rippy, who was hit by a pitch.
Georgetown came right back in the bottom half the inning after Campbellsville's Victoria Decker walked two batters, threw a wild pitch and allowed a single to Sandy Young. Before the dust cleared the Tigers were up 5-2.
Campbellsville came right back in the top of the sixth using one hit, two walks, a hit batsman and two errors to tie the game at 5-5.
After that Campbellsville could only get one runner on base.
CU managed but five hits while Georgetown collected eight.
The Lady Tigers will travel on Monday to Clinton, Miss. for the NCCAA Mid-East Regional at Mississippi College, hoping to earn a berth in the NCCAA World Series.
