The reigning SEC Champion Alabama softball team had a busy weekend as it closed out the short Fall season last Sunday afternoon with two wins over the Wallace State Lions in a doubleheader, after being honored at the homecoming game Saturday night.

The ladies of Team 25 took to Bryant Denny Stadium during halftime Saturday as they were honored for their SEC title and received their championship rings, less than 24 hours before Team 26 took to the field to finish out its final two Fall games.

The Crimson Tide won its first game of the doubleheader 5-1, with junior pitcher Lexi Kilfoyl throwing a complete game. Kilfoyl allowed only one run and two hits in the victory, tallying nine strikeouts.

Alabama's scoring started with an RBI double from junior catcher Abby Doerr in the bottom of the first inning that put them up 1-0. The final four runs were all scored in the bottom of the fourth inning on an RBI single from freshman infielder Aubrey Barnhart, a Kilfoyl RBI double, and a two-run single from senior infielder Ashley Prange.

The scoring didn't begin in the second game until the bottom of the third inning when a Wallace State infielder made a play on a grounder, tagging first and then throwing home, only for the ball to soar past the plate and two Alabama runners were able to come in on the errant throw and score.

Senior catcher Ally Shipman was 2-for-3 on the day, adding to the score with a solo home run in the fourth inning. A bases-loaded walk from freshman infielder Megan Bloodworth followed by a two-run single from Barnhart pushed the Tide to victory with a final score of 6-0.

Redshirt freshman pitcher Alex Salter pitched six innings of shutout ball with 11 strikeouts, and Senior pitcher Montana Fouts struck out the side in the seventh inning to bring the game to a close.

Alabama finished its short Fall season 7-1, only falling once in the opener at Lipscomb. The Crimson Tide defeated ULM, West Alabama, Memphis, Wallace State, and Lipscomb over the course of a two-week Fall schedule. Team 26 will roll again starting March 11th, 2022 in a three-game series against the LSU Tigers in Baton Rouge.

Their first home game will be the opener of a three-game series versus Kentucky at the Rhoads House on March 18th, 2022.
