Softball splits with No. 5 CNU; Powell tosses complete game shutout in opener

Softball splits with No. 5 CNU; Powell tosses complete game shutout in opener

SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury University softball team picked up a Capital Athletic Conference doubleheader split with No. 5 Christopher Newport University on Friday afternoon at a breezy Sea Gull Softball Stadium. Salisbury won the opener, 2-0, before falling in the second game, 6-1.

Game 1: Salisbury 2, Christopher Newport 0

The Sea Gulls used two early runs and a stellar pitching performance from senior Shannon Powell to earn the opening game win.

Back-to-back two-out doubles got the scoring started for the Sea Gulls in the second inning. Senior Amelia Trotter sliced one to right field before Kendall Dixon followed with her own to right-center field, allowing Trotter to score for the 1-0 lead.

The next inning Jillian Jones doubled the Salisbury lead, outlasting Christopher Newport starting pitcher Trish Webb. Jones fouled off a number of two-strike pitches, and on the 13th pitch of the at-bat sliced one down the left field line, hitting the foul pole for an opposite field home run, making it 2-0 in the Sea Gulls' favor.

Powell kept the Captains at bay throughout the game, allowing just four base runners in the contest on three hits and a walk while striking out a pair. Only one of the base runner reached scoring position, and she did not touch third safely, with the Salisbury defense standing up behind Powell. The Sea Gulls turned a double play, and had two diving catches in left field by Trotter, including the final out of the game.

Game 2: Christopher Newport 6, Salisbury 1

The Captains (27-5, 8-2 CAC) threatened in the top of the first against starter Alexis Powell, loading the bases with no outs. Calah Savage came on to pinch hit, but Layton got a groundball to second base to end the threat.

The game was still scoreless into the third inning and one big inning for Christopher Newport proved to be the difference. CNU scored six times on three hits off Layton and Powell, who came on in relief in the frame.

Christopher Newport starter Emily Weatherholtz was equally as good as Powell was in the opener. Weatherholtz carried a no-hitter into the fifth inning before Kaleigh Edwards broke up the no-hitter and the shutout with one swing of the bat. After just pulling a deep drive foul, Edwards straightened the next one out just enough for her fifth home run of the year, a solo shot that brought Salisbury (21-10, 5-3 CAC) within 6-1.

Weatherholtz was able to retire the final eight batters after Edwards to close out the win.  

The Sea Gulls are back in action on Saturday, April 20, hosting Southern Virginia University in a CAC doubleheader beginning at 1 p.m. Prior to the game, Salisbury will recognize its three seniors, playing their final regular season games at Sea Gull Softball Stadium.
