OREM -- The BYU women's softball team rocketed ten home runs to bring the Cougars to a 22-2 win over Utah Valley on Wednesday. The Cougars advance to 30-14 on the season.

Senior Daniela Snow led the team when she set a new single-game RBI record, when she brought in eight runs. She homered three times during the game and went 4-for-4.

Senior Emi-Snow Willing and sophomore Angeline Quiocho each knocked out three long balls of there own, while freshman Jessica Purcell had two home runs.

BYU started off the game loading the bases to bring up Snow, who knocked out the first ball of the night. The Cougars batted through the lineup before the inning ended and recorded another run when Snow-Willing hit her first home run of the day.

In the second inning Snow and Quiocho had back-to-back homers to bring the Cougar lead to 7-0. In the bottom of the inning Utah Valley answered claiming its only two runs of the game.

In the third inning sophomore Amanda Vance recorded an RBI when she brought in Kristin Delahoussaye from third. It was followed by a grand slam from Snow-Willing, her second homer of the day.

Delahoussaye singled to start a rally in the fourth inning that brought in six runners off of seven hits, including home runs from Quiocho and Purcell. In the fifth, Snow and Quiocho hit their second round of back-to-back homers, and an additional bomb from Purcell gave BYU the 22-2 lead.

The Cougars return to conference play to defend their Mountain West Conference title on Friday when they face Utah. The game will mark another meeting between the Deseret First Duel universities, and is available on BYU-TV.
