Two straight feels great

Back to back beat downs of Jacksonville University helped the Georgia Southern University softball team push its record to 11-10 with a 5-1 win.

Junior pitcher Sarah Purvis responded well after allowing five unearned runs in her last start. She struck out nine batters and only gave up two hits.

GSU put together two solid efforts as the team followed up an 11 hit performance with five runs on eight hits.

Junior shortstop Kourtny Thomas helped her pitcher out with a solo home run to center field in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Thomas hit a home run but senior first baseman Tabby Douberley kicked off the scoring in the first inning with a two RBI single to right field.

Douberley and the Eagles will reignite the battle of the birds on March 9 when the team takes on the Elon University Phoenix at 1:00 p.m.
