BOX SCORE

STOCKTON, Calif. (Feb. 26) – Seattle University softball fell, 3-0, to CSUN Sunday morning at the Libby Matson Tournament. Paige Bouska and Susanne Morris each had two hits for the Redhawks.

“We had opportunities today,” said Coach Geoff Hirai. “We just need to improve in those situations. Overall, we’re making strides in a positive direction.”

Bouska hit a one-out double in the top of the first inning, but the rally went no further. In the second, Morris singled, but SU (3-11) could not move her around. CSUN put together two singles and a walk to score a run and grab a 1-0 edge.

Bouska had a hit in the third and Morris singled again in the fourth, but neither scored. In the fifth, Nicole Bolasky led off with a single and then Kaylee Ree later had a base hit, but the Redhawks were retired to end the threat.

Morris reached for a third time in the sixth inning, this time via walk, but again, the Matadors kept her stranded at first. CSUN then came up with a pair of home runs in the bottom half of the frame, tacking on insurance for a three-run advantage.

The Redhawks continued to work, as Sara Dominguez singled with one out in the seventh, but two flyouts closed out the contest.

Morris went 2-2 with a walk, while Bouska was 2-4 with a double. Andie Larkins gave up six hits and three runs in six innings of work in the circle.

Seattle U travels to Hawaii for the Malihini Kipa Aloha Tournament next weekend. The Redhawks will play five games in Honolulu March 3-5.
