LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN -- The Covenant softball team dropped a pair of contests to USA South foe Pfeiffer on Saturday. The Scots fell in game one, 8-0, before suffering a 9-0 defeat in the finale.

Even though the two teams are USA South members, the games do not count toward league standings. Covenant drops to 2-5 on the year, while Pfeiffer remains unbeaten at 6-0.

GAME ONE: Pfeiffer 8, Covenant 0

Covenant had just three hits in the game and Pfeiffer scored in every inning to come away with the 8-0 victory in five innings.

The visiting Falcons scored twice in the first and three times in the second inning to open up a 5-0 lead. Pfeiffer then added single runs in the third, fourth, and fifth innings.

Faith Manning, Aileen Hill, and Madyson Gibbins all had one hit for Covenant. Manning had the only extra-base hit as she doubled in the second inning.

Carsyn Stone (1-3) started for Covenant and went 1.2 innings. Lauren Kierpa came on for the final 3.1 innings and surrendered one earned run while striking out two.

Kyndle Wallace (1-0) got the win in relief for the Falcons after going two scoreless innings. Five different Falcons had two hits apiece as Pfeiffer totaled 13 in the victory.

GAME TWO: Pfeiffer 9, Covenant 0

Pfeiffer opened up a close game with a four-run fifth inning and pulled away for a 9-0 win to complete the sweep.

The Falcons led 2-0 entering the fifth inning, but scored four runs in that frame, highlighted by Kari Westerbeek's three-run homer, to go ahead 6-0.

Gibbins and Jada Allmon had one hit each for the Scots in the loss. Sarah Huskey (1-2) went 4.1 innings in her start and struck out five.

Kiana Millsaps (3-0) received the win for Pfeiffer in the circle after tossing five innings.
