COLLEGE STATION -- Bhe BYU women's softball team defeated McNeese St. 7-1 before losing to No. 24 Texas A&M 9-1 in five innings at College Station, Texas, Friday. The Cougars are now 3-3 on the season and will play the same teams at the same time on Saturday. Live internet stats and audio are available for the game.

In a game that Oii Kehohou was not sure whether she would play or not, the junior slugger hit a long solo home run in the second inning to give the Cougars an early 1-0 lead. The home run is the third of the year and 42nd in her career. Oli also recorded a double in the fourth to bring in a run.

BYU quickly loaded the bases in the same inning as senior Brooke Cadiente stepped to the plate and hit a grand slam with two outs. This marked the first home run of the season for Cadiente, whose last home run was also a grand slam against San Diego State in the MWC Tournament last season. Brooke hit another home run, a solo shot, late in the game to mark her third career game where she homered twice.

Junior Kate Walker went a solid 3-4 at the plate for her best offenseive game of the early season.

Senior Cynthia Fallowfield (1-0) pitched a complete game on the mound giving up only one run.

In game two, Niki Andersen (1-2) picked up the loss for the Cougars giving up four hits and four runs in one inning on the mound.

BYU trailed 6-0 in the second inning before freshman Ianeta Lei, who also recorded a double, scored to bring the gap within five. The Aggies scored three runs in the fifth inning off freshman Brooke Boyce to end the game early.

The Cougars mustered only two hits while giving up 14 hits to the Aggies.

"We've got to give credit to their hitters who hit the ball really well," head coach Gordon Eakin said. "We are trying not to put too much emphasis on the game and score more runs that they do tomorrow."
