Huskers Fall to Stephen F. Austin

Houston - It was a frustrating day at the plate for the eighth-ranked Nebraska softball team on Saturday afternoon, as the Huskers were shut out in a 1-0 loss to Stephen F. Austin.

Nebraska out-hit the Ladyjacks 6-2, but an error accounted for the game's lone run.

Stephen F. Austin plated the only run in the bottom of the third without recording a hit. A leadoff walk, a bunt and a fielder's choice where no out was recorded gave the Ladyjacks runners at the corners with one out. Nebraska then failed to execute a rundown between home and third on a ground ball, as an error on a dropped tag allowed the game's first run to score.

Nebraska was never able to solve SFA ace Carlie Thomas. Thomas worked out of a jam in the first inning, before running into trouble again in the fourth. Senior Taylor Edwards led off the fourth with her second single of the day and sophomore Hailey Decker followed with another single. After a fly out, freshman Austen Urness worked a six-pitch walk to load the bases with one out, but a pair of strikeouts ended the inning.

Nebraska then lined into an inning-ending double play in the fifth and was retired in order in the sixth before missing a final scoring chance in the top of the seventh. In the seventh, Urness led off with a double and moved to third on a single by junior Mattie Fowler. With runners at first and third and no outs, sophomore Alicia Armstrong lined into a double play, before sophomore Dawna Tyson pinch hit and hit a ground ball deep in the hole between second and third. But shortstop Elizabeth Arana made a nice play in the hole and threw Tyson out to end the game.

Thomason (2-2) tossed a six-hit shutout in the victory, striking out five and working around three walks. Senior right-hander Tatum Edwards (3-1) suffered her first loss of the season for Nebraska, which fell to 5-2 on the year. Edwards did not allow an earned run in 3.0 innings of work, surrendering just one hit and striking out four. Sophomore right-hander Emily Lockman pitched 3.0 shutout innings of relief, allowing only hit and posting five strikeouts.

Taylor Edwards led the offensive effort with a 2-for-3 effort. Urness was 1-for-2 with a double and a walk.

Nebraska looks to rebound in Saturday's second game against Sam Houston State.
