Oregon Softball Drops Five Inning Game To Huskies

May 5, 2001

SEATTLE - The University of Oregon softball team fell 11-0 in five innings to the Washington Huskies at the Husky Softball Stadium in Seattle, Wash., Saturday afternoon. The Huskies improve to 35-19 overall, 9-8 Pac-10 while Oregon drops to 27-35, 1-16.

'We were plagued by errors and couldn't seem to get our offense going,' Oregon head coach Rick Gamez said. 'We just weren't mentally tough today.'

Oregon pitcher Lisa Wangler (5-10) took the loss for Oregon and Washington pitcher Tia Bollinger (31-5) picked up the win. Wangler gave up seven hits and six runs in 1.1 innings pitched. Freshman Anissa Meashintubby took over in the second inning, giving up five hits and five runs over 2.2 innings.

The Huskies took a 2-0 lead after the first inning then scored nine runs in the bottom of the second inning to extend their lead. The game was called after the fifth inning because of the eight run mercy rule.

Offensively, Oregon's only two hits came from Lynsey Haij and Andrea Vidlund, who finished the day 1-for-2.
