ST. GEORGE, Utah (April 14, 2014) - Back in action after over three weeks off amidst finals, the BYU-Hawaii softball dropped both games of a doubleheader to Dixie State on Monday afternoon, falling 10-0 in five innings, and 2-0 in the second game.
The Seasiders (10-16, 6-14) had to shake off the rust after game one and battled in a pitchers' duel in game two.
In game two, Keagan Hanny pitched a solid 6.0 innings, striking out three and gave up just two earned runs.
Dixie State's Michelle Duncan pitched a complete game one-hitter, striking out seven for the win.
The Red Storm scored in the fourth and the fifth innings to take a 2-0 lead, quieting the Seasider bats for the game.
In Dixie's half of the first inning, BYU-Hawaii gave up five runs, started off by a bases-loaded single to right to get on the board.
A walk and two singles led to three more and the Red Storm put up five in first to jump out to a 5-0 lead.
The Seasiders had Maria Micheli and Rebecca Mawson in scoring position in the second to try and answer but were unable to bring them in. They threatened again in the fourth with two on and no out but Dixie State struck out the next three batters to quiet any comeback, falling 10-0 in five innings.
BYU-Hawaii plays another twin bill against the Red Storm tomorrow.
