Juco softball: SCF alive in tournament
GULF COAST 2, SCF 1 -- The State College of Florida Manatees are still alive in the FCSAA/NJCAA Gulf District 8B softball tournament held at Exchange Park in Pensacola.
SCF dropped its opener 2-1 to Gulf Coast on Friday to fall into the loser’s bracket of the double-elimination state tournament.
Former Bayshore standout Cortney Sadler blasted a home run to account for SCF’s lone run.
However, the Manatees found themselves on the other end of that 2-1 scoreline to oust Chipola for the first time in the Meredith Headings’ four years as head coach.
Chelsea Oglevie was the star from the pitcher’s circle, tossing a complete game gem that included eight strikeouts and surrendering just five hits.
The freshman hurler struck out Chipola’s Ariell Van Hook, who is the state’s player of the year, twice including the game’s final out with the Indians threatening with a runner in scoring position.
Oglevie also had two strikeouts in the first game as a reliever.
Ali Geiger (2-for-2, sacrifice), Angie Dascoli (2-for-2, sacrifice), Stephanie Juergens (2-for-2, stole base) and Kayla Schappacher (double, RBI) led the Manatees offense in the loser’s bracket contest.
Kelsey Maffucci drove in the other run with a sacrifice fly as the Manatees jumped out to a 2-0 lead after two innings.
SCF returns to the diamond at 10 a.m. today against Northwest Florida State.
