The Lady Titans softball team played a double-header on Sunday, February 15th, against Calhoun Community College. After a hard loss of 1-7, the Lady Titans came back determined and won the second game 1-0.
The first game began at 3pm at the Eddie C. Moore Softball Complex in Clearwater. The first two innings went by without any runs, but during the top of the third, Calhoun came out strong. After two outs, Calhoun had the bases loaded. Jennifer Schroeder (#9) was up at bat and made a great hit to outfield, which awarded the team three runs.
At the bottom of the fourth after one out, SPC’s Ashley Spell (#11) made the Titans’ first run. The next inning and a half went by with no additional runs.
In the sixth inning, Calhoun got the bases loaded. Shelby Kerr (#11) got up to bat and with two strikes St. Pete decided to swap pitchers. Amanda Chamber (#24) was swapped for Nikkie Kovalsky (#25). This swap was apparently good for Calhoun, who then made three runs off of Kerr’s hit. After two outs, Calhoun made another run before getting three outs. The last inning went by with no runs, making the final score 1-7.
After a team huddle and a thirty minute break, both teams were back for another game; St. Pete had an obvious desire for redemption.
Almost the entire game went by, six innings to be exact, without a run. The only moment of significance was in the first inning when St. Pete’s coach was seen talking to the umpire after a controversial call that gave the team their third out.
In the bottom of the sixth, St. Pete finally made the first and only run, winning the game 1-0.
