PROVO -- Cougar softball took a split against the Vikings of Portland State losing in the game one of a double-header 1-3 and winning 10-0 in game two in Portland, Ore.

BYU managed just one run on five hits and making one error in the loss. The Cougars lone run came off an Ariel Capra home run in the first inning. BYU head coach Gordon Eakin said he doesn't think the team is playing to its potential.

"We are not playing with passion as a team," Eakin said. "I think we have a 17-4 record because of our talent, but to become a great team, we need players that will play with passion every game."

With a fire lit under them after a disappointing game one loss, BYU bounced back quickly taking control of game two scoring four runs in the first inning and adding another in the second and a 5-0 lead. Freshman Daniella Urincho pitched an outstanding shut out game for the Cougars with eight strikeouts. BYU finished the game strong scoring one in the sixth inning and four more in the seventh.

"I sent a stern message to the players today," Eakin said. "It will be interesting to see which team shows up tomorrow."

BYU plays 15th ranked Oregon St. in a double-header Friday, March 25 in Corvallis, Ore. Game one is set to begin at 2 p.m.
