Lincoln - The Nebraska softball team completed a perfect Saturday at the Big Red Fall Classic with a 9-0 win over in-state rival UNO in the Huskers' second game of the day. NU defeated Colorado State, 2-0, in its first game Saturday.

Against the Mavs, sophomore right-hander Emily Lockman fired a three-hit shutout, allowing three singles and only two walks. Lockman allowed only three UNO runners to reach second base.

With Lockman in control in the circle, a pair of freshmen and sophomore Hailey Decker powered the Husker offense's 16-hit attack. Kat Woolman went 4-for-4 with a run scored and classmate MJ Knighten finished 2-for-3 with a pair of RBIs and a run scored. Decker was 4-for-4 with a double, a triple and three RBIs.

Nebraska mounted the game's first scoring threat in the top of the second inning, fueled by a two-out single from Woolman followed by back-to-back walks to sophomore Sammi Noland and Knighten. But a pop out to third ended the threat.

The Huskers then broke through in the top of the third. Senior Taylor Edwards led off the frame with a single up the middle. Decker then laid down a sacrifice bunt and a wild throw from the UNO pitcher put runners on second and third with no outs. Senior Kylee Muir then gave Nebraska a 2-0 lead with a two-run single down the right field line. Following an out, consecutive singles from junior Mattie Fowler and Woolman loaded the bases with only one out. Noland followed with a hard-hit infield single that deflected off the third baseman, scoring Muir with the third run of the inning.

Trailing 3-0 with the bases loaded and just one out, UNO went to the bullpen and called upon Cheyenne Baxter, who jumped ahead of Knighten 1-2, before Knighten laced an RBI single to right field to make it 4-0. Baxter prevented any further damage by coaxing an inning-ending line drive double play.

The Huskers added to their lead in the top of the fifth. Fowler began the inning with a single through the left side before Woolman delivered her third hit of the game, a single to right field that put runners on the corners with no outs. Freshman pinch runner Lotte Sjulin scored Nebraska's fifth run of the game on a wild pitch on ball four to Noland. With runners on first and third, Woolman scored on an RBI single from Knighten. Leading 6-0, sophomore Kiki Stokes put down a sacrifice bunt to put Huskers at second and third with one out. Then with two outs, sophomore Hailey Decker laced a two-run double down the right field line to give the Huskers an 8-0 advantage. Muir followed with a double of her own on the next pitch to score Decker and make it 9-0.

That would be more than enough support for Lockman, who worked around a pair of two-out walks in the bottom of the sixth before retiring the side in order in the seventh.

Nebraska returns to action on Sunday at the Big Red Fall Classic. The Huskers will face Colorado State at Noon and UNO at 5 p.m.
