LAS -- In a doubleheader at UNLV, the BYU women's softball team split with the Rebels in a 11-5 win and a 5-1 loss to advance to 27-14 overall and 4-2 in the Mountain West Conference.

During the first game, a big sixth inning clinched the win for the Cougars. They came into the top of the inning with a 1-0 lead after freshman Jessica Purcell scored on a UNLV error in the second inning. In the sixth inning BYU batted through the lineup and scored seven runs off of six hits, including a triple and a double from sophomore Amanda Vance.

UNLV tried to rally back in the bottom of the sixth but they were limited to only four runs to bring the score to 8-4.

In the top of the seventh the Cougars added three insurance runs when Purcell hit an RBI single and junior Stephanie Platt-Hopkins hit a two-run homer. In the bottom of the seventh BYU pitcher Christina Gwyn-Trice allowed one run off of two hits before freshman Paige Affleck came in to relieve Gwyn-Trice. Affleck recorded the game's final two outs and BYU won 11-5.

The second game proved to be a completely different story for BYU, as the struggled to move the ball offensively. The Cougars' only run came in the sixth inning when Vance hit a solo home run. With runners on first and second BYU looked to rally additional runs but the attempt was thwarted when a double play ended the Cougs at-bat.

The game remained a 0-0 deadlock until the bottom of the third inning when an error allowed both a UNLV runner on base and a runner to score. In the fourth inning the Rebels scored another run when BYU hurler Christie Zinanti allowed a single to right field, which brought in a base runner from second.

In the sixth inning two additional runs scored before Affleck relieved Zinanti, only allowing one more run to score.

The Cougars head to San Diego State to face the Aztecs on Friday at 6 p.m. and Saturday at 1 p.m. San Diego State leads the Conference standings while BYU trials just behind the Aztecs. Both games will be available via livestats at www.byucougars.com.
