BYU Stays Hot in Conference Opener Sweep Over UNLV

LAS VEGAS -- The BYU women's softball team keeps on rolling with a sweep over UNLV in their conference opener at UNLV 7-3, 6-1, Friday. The Cougars have won 11 of their last 12 games with the only loss coming at No. 2 Stanford and improve to 23-11, 2-0 on the season. UNLV drops to 18-24, 0-2.

In the first game, freshman Niki Andersen (6-3) gave up only two earned runs and struck out four in winning her sixth consecutive game. The Cougars were down 3-1 going into the top of the seventh, but scored six unanswered runs for another comeback win. Junior pitcher Cythia Fallowfield showed her ability to hit the ball going 3-3 with three RBI. Freshman Lauren Watson went 2-3 with one RBI. Seniors Liz Boydston and Kari Pringle also went 2-3.

In game two, Ariel Capra (8-2) picked up with win giving up only one run. Pringle went 2-3 with two RBI. Junior Brooke Cadiente went 2-4 with two RBI. All-American Oli Keohohou was walked four times in the doubleheader.

"I am thrilled with the way we came back in the first game," head coach Mary Kay Amicone said. "It's great to open conference play with a sweep on the road. I'm really impressed with the way our entire team has been hitting well lately."

BYU will finish the weekend at San Diego tomorrow taking on the Aztecs. The game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. "San Diego State should be tough tomorrow," said Amicone. "They are a solid team all around."
