HONOLULU -- BYU (0-3) fell short to Tennessee 11-6 in nine innings on Friday at the Hawai`i Paradise Classic.

The Lady Vols scored the first run of the game in the top of the first and the Cougars responded with a run to tie the game at 1-1 in the bottom of the third.

The game remained scoreless through the seventh inning, propelling the game in extra frames. This marked the first time this season BYU has gone into an extra-inning game.

Suspense then overtook the game as, Tennessee came out in the top of the eighth inning swinging, which led the Lady Vols to convert four hits into five runs and seize the momentum with a 6-1 lead.

The pressure was on the Cougars, but they answered to match Tennessee's five runs and tie the score at 6-6, in the bottom of the eighth. Freshman Krystle Chamberlain came through with a huge single to center field brining in freshman Jodi Norton who was the tying run.

The Lady Vols continued with their hot bats to score another five runs (11-6) in the top of the ninth. BYU once again felt the pressure to have another big offensive inning, but the Tennessee defense did not let BYU rally back into the game.

Tennessee's Monica Abbott (2-0) was the winning pitcher, while BYU's Brooke Boyce (0-1) got the loss. Abbott struck out 10 BYU batters in five innings on the mound. Boyce faced 43 batters in eight innings, striking out five Tennessee batters.

Up next, BYU will look for its first win of the season against the University of Alabama at Birmingham at 9 a.m. (HT), Noon (MT) and St. Mary's at 7 p.m. (HT), 10 p.m. (MT) to conclude the five-game season opening tournament in Hawai`i.
