Gaels Fall to No. 10 California

Feb. 20, 2007

Berkeley, CA - The Saint Mary's softball team dropped a tough game to the No.10 ranked team in the country. The explosive Cal Bears proved to be too much for the Gaels, winning today's game by a score of 9-1.

California managed to put up eight runs in the first three innings, including five in the second. Freshman Christina Schallig did most of the damage for the Bears. Although the first baseman was only 1-1 she accounted for a run and five RBI's. Sophomore Carly Winger proved to be the coup de grace for the Gaels. She came off of the bench to hit the game winning home run to seal the victory for Cal.

Although the Gaels fell to California, there were good signs. Molly Bergeson extended her hitting streak to five games, improving her average to .429. Lauren Mello recorded the lone Gael run in today's game. She now has five runs on the season. Bergeson and Mello now lead the team with six hits each.

The Gaels have dropped three in a row to tough opponents. They will look to right the ship this weekend when they will compete in the UC Davis Invitational this weekend. The Gaels will compete against Kentucky this Friday, February 24. They will then face off against UC Riverside and UC Davis Saturday, February 25. They will match up against UC Riverside again on Sunday before playing in a match against PCSC opponent Sacramento State. All games will take place from Davis, CA.
