Tars Take First Clash with Fighting Knights

WINTER PARK, Fla. (April 26, 2019) – The Tars looked dominant throughout, on their way to a 6-1 win over Sunshine State Conference foe Lynn, at Rollins Softball Stadium.  The Tars improve to 36-11 overall, and 18-10 in SSC play.  The Fighting Knights fall to 16-34 on the year, and 6-22 in conference action.

Ashley Worrell went 2-4 at the plate, including blasting her seventh homerun of the season, pacing the Rollins offense.  Talia Kentoffio tallied a pair of hits, scoring one run, and driving in another.  Abigail Sexton went 1-3, with three RBI.

Worrell also picked up her 20th win in the circle for Rollins.  The freshman threw six innings and gave up just one run.  Abby Summers threw the seventh, striking out two.

Kayla Sheffield went 2-3 for Lynn, driving in the Fighting Knights lone run.  Allyson Jameston, tossed the complete game giving six runs, only two earned, and striking out a pair.

Lynn started the scoring, using a pair of Rollins walks to manufacture the first run.  The Tars would respond quickly, taking back the lead in the bottom of the first.  A Kentoffio fielder's choice scored Worrell to knot the game at 1-1, then a Sexton two-run double gave Rollins a lead they would never relinquish.

Sexton recorded another RBI with a groundout in the third, expanding the Rollins lead to 4-0.  Worrell helped her own cause, driving Jordan Davis home for a run in the fourth, then icing the game away with a towering homerun in the sixth.
