(Photo by Mark Philbrick/BYU Photo)

COLLEGE STATION -- After a weather-related game cancellation Thursday at the 008 Aggie Classic in College Station, Texas, the BYU women's softball team dominated over Illinois with at 10-0 and fell to No. 3 Texas A&M, 3-1, Friday. The Cougars advance to a 12-8 record.

Senior first baseman Dani Snow, who went 5-for-7 including five RBI, led BYU. Snow hit a three-run bomb during the Cougars shut-out performance against Illinois.

Hurler and fellow senior Christina Gwyn Trice received the win against Illinois. She struck out 11 batters and gave up no runs on two hits, while walking only three batters.

The Cougars struck early against Illinois, with a run in the first inning from sophomore shortstop Amanda Vance. She hit an infield single and scored off of a single to right from Snow.

The score remained at 1-0 until the top of the fourth inning when freshman catcher Jessica Purcell scored, followed by a single from Snow to bring in Vance in the top of the fifth to extend BYU's lead, 3-0.

The Cougars rallied in the top of the seventh inning when Snow hit a three-run homer to left field. Following the momentum of the homer, the team recorded four more runs to finish the game 10-0.

BYU came out fighting in its second game against No. 3 Texas A&M. The Cougars were led by senior right fielder Emi Snow Willing and freshman second baseman Kristin Dealhoussaye, who both went 2-for-3 during the game.

Sophomore Christie Zinanti pitched 3.1 innings and gave up three runs on six hits, including back-to-back home runs. Gwyn Trice relieved Zinanti and gave up one hit and no runs in 3.2 innings.

Junior center fielder Monica Gonzales scored BYU's lone run in the bottom of the first. A single up the middle from Snow Willing knocked in Gonzales from third to give the Cougars a 1-0 lead.

BYU held its lead until the top of the third inning when back-to-back home runs from the three and four hole gave Texas A&M the lead. A single in the top of the fourth inning brought in another Aggie run and extended their lead, 3-1.

The Cougars tried to overcome the deficit, but left four runners on base during the remaining innings leaving the score at 3-1.

The loss marked BYU's lowest scoring margin against top-10 teams this season. They are now 4-1 against ranked opponents, and will play No. 22 Louisiana Lafayette on Saturday at 12:15 p.m., after facing Illinois again at 10 a.m. Livestats for both games are available at www.byucougars.com.
