CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Georgia Tech softball was topped by Boston University, 2-0, on Friday afternoon at Sue M. Daughtridge Stadium. Despite the trio in the circle of Blake Neleman, Sophia Voyles and Chandler Dennis holding the Terriers to four hits, the Yellow Jackets never pushed a run home.
Neleman (2-2) received the loss with seven punchouts in four innings of work while Dennis also tossed a solid couple of innings to finish things off, only allowing one hit with a pair of strikeouts. At the plate, sophomore second baseman Grace Connelly picked up a single, representing the White and Gold’s lone hit.
BU broke a three-inning scoring drought to move in front, barreling an RBI triple in the top of the fourth. The Terriers tacked onto their lead an inning later, following a pair of singles with a fielder’s choice that drove in their second run. The Jackets were unable to get on the board in their final three opportunities, falling 2-0.
Georgia Tech will continue competition in the Queen City Classic, taking on Penn State and Kent State on Saturday for day two in Charlotte, N.C. The Yellow Jackets will open the day against the Nittany Lions at 10 a.m. and wrap up with the Golden Flashes at 3 p.m. Coverage information will be provided here.
