School Record Winning Streak Extended to 11

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - (March 21, 2003) - The BYU women's softball team (20-7) extended its school record winning streak to 11 games with wins over New Mexico 3-2, and Texas-San Antonio 8-3. BYU won the New Mexico State Tournament outright posting a 5-0 record over the weekend.

Lauren Watson led the tournament in batting with a .625 10 of 16. Keohohou was second 9-15 (.600) going three home runs in the tournament Kate Walker was 6-14 (.429)

"We played all-around well for the weekend," head coach Gordon Eakin said.

In the early morning game, BYU defeated conference foe New Mexico 3-2 in a non-conference match. The team fell behind 1-0 after the first inning and didn't get a hit until the fourth inning but battled back to win. BYU scored two runs in the fourth and one run in the fifth to take a 3-1 lead and held on despite a Lobo run in the sixth.

Sophomore Lauren Watson led the Cougars going 2-3 with a run and an RBI. Freshman Ianeta Lei went 1-3 with a run and an RBI. Junior Oli Keohohou went 1-2 with a run scored.

Senior Cynthia Fallowfield (5-2) pitched all seven innings for the Cougars and gave up six hits and two earned runs and struck out seven Lobos.

"I was pleased with the way the team battled back in a cold morning game after falling behind," Eakin said.

In game two of the doubleheader, BYU trailed 0-1 in the bottom of the first inning. With two outs, Lauren Watson doubled to center field and was brought home by Ianeta Lei, who singled to center field to tie the score at 1-1.

In the second inning, BYU put three more runs on the board with a single by senior Brooke Cadiente to start things off. Junior Belinda Osborn drew a walk and sophomore Mili Jones hit a double to score Cadiente. Keohohou hit a sacrifice fly to right field to score Osborn and Jones scored on a pass ball.

Texas-San Antonio responded in the third inning with two runs to bridge the gap at 4-3. The Cougars responded nicely in the fourth inning as Keohohou hit her third in home in three days, her 10th of the season, to score Osborn, who reached on a fielder's choice. Kohohou finished the game 2-3 with a home run and three RBI.

In the sixth inning, BYU put the game out of reach with a freshman Ashlyn Russel hit a two RBI single to left field that scored sophomore Debbie Dodds ,who pinch ran for junior Kate Walker, and Watson, who reached on a walk.

Freshman Brooke Boyce (4-1) pitched a complete game allowing eight hits and three earned runs in seven innings while striking out four and walking two.

BYU hopes to stay blue hot as they host Utah in the conference opener next Saturday in a doubleheader starting at noon at Gail Miller Field. Live stats will be available for the game.
