BYU Wins Two to Extend Win Streak to Five

SANTA BARBARA -- Behind a solid day on the mound, the BYU women's softball team defeated San Diego 2-1 and Cal-State Northridge 7-2 to extend their winning streak to five games. The Cougars improve to 8-3 on the season while the Toreros drop to 0-6 and Matadors drop to 6-6.

In game one, the Cougars trailed 1-0 heading into the first inning. Sophomore Lauren Watson started the inning with a key walk that was followed by a two-run home run blast by freshman Ashlyn Russell, her fourth of the season that ties her with teammate Oli Keohohou, and gave the Cougars a 2-1 lead and provided only scoring of the game. Russell finished with two RBI and two walks while senior Brooke Cadiente went 3-3.

The rest of the game was a battle between the pitchers. Sophomore Niki Andersen (3-2) pitched all seven innings for the Cougars giving up five hits and only one run while striking out six opposing batters.

"We're very pleased with the way our team has been playing and battling back in games," head coach Gordon Eakin said. "We are growing together as a team."

In game two, the Cougars struck in first inning off a three-run home run by Cadiente, the third Cougar to hit four homers on the season, to score Watson and Keohohou.

The Cougars took a commanding lead in the fifth inning with Watson leading the way on a opening double. Russell advanced Watson to third and Cadiente got on base on a walk. Freshman Ianeta Lei hit a sacrifice fly to score Watson to take a 5-2 lead. Senior Cynthia Fallowfield walked to put runners on first and second as junior Kate Walker hit a double score both runners and give the Cougars a 7-2 final score.

Senior Mandy Flint (2-1) started for the Cougars and picked up the win in four innings on the mound. Freshman Brooke Boyce came in relief for the Cougars a notched the save.

The Cougars finish up the Softball by the Beach Invitational tomorrow against Big 12 opponent Kansas at 1:30 followed by a rematch against Cal-Poly at 6 p.m. The Cougars lost 7-6 to the Mustangs 7-6 on Feb. 1 in St. George.
