Butler Women’s Softball V Seton Hall


The Butler Bulldogs softball team faced Seton Hall in a pivotal three-game BIG EAST series this past weekend. Let’s break down the action.

In the opener, Butler battled Seton Hall in a tight contest, but fell short in extra innings, losing 2-1. Paige Dorsett’s solo home run gave Butler an early lead, but Seton Hall rallied late to secure the win.

Game two saw Butler fighting hard, but ultimately, Seton Hall’s early lead proved insurmountable. Despite a late surge from Butler, highlighted by back-to-back squeeze plays, Seton Hall held on for a 6-3 victory.

Butler came back strong in game three, dominating Seton Hall with a final score of 5-2. They showcased their offensive skill, scoring runs in the first four innings and shutting down Seton Hall’s offense in the final frames.

These games highlighted key players’ performances. Paige Dorsett’s power-hitting, Kaylee Gross’s base stealing, and Katie Petran’s pitching prowess were instrumental throughout the series.

Despite the series loss, Butler showed resilience and determination. The following game against Dayton was canceled. This upcoming week, Butler will face off against DePaul in a Big East three-game series.
