Cougars Down Host Southern Utah, 10-1

ST. GEORGE -- In the opening game of the 2002 season, the BYU women's softball team won handily over the host Southern Utah 10-1, Friday at the Thurderbird Classic. The game was called after six innings due to the eight-run rule. The Cougars avenged an opening day loss against Southern Utah at the same tournament last season.

The Thunderbirds scored first, but the Cougars showed poise to come back strong. Junior Brooke Cadiente smashed a three-run home run and finished the game with four RBI. Kate Peterson, a transfer from Oregon, had a wonderful Cougar debut, hitting 2-3 with two RBI. Cynthia FallowField (1-0) picked up the win after pitching only one game last season.

"I was really pleased with our composure after trailing early," said head coach Mary Kay Amicone. "We kept our confidence and it's good to start the season with a win."

The Cougars had 13 hits and committed no errors as a team, showing no signs of the opening day jitters.

The Cougars (1-0) will face Oregon State at 10 a.m., the University of San Diego at 2 p.m., followed by St. Mary's at 4 p.m. tomorrow to finish the tournament.
