Cougar pitcher Sami DeFord probably wishes Falcon leadoff hitter Stephanie Brunette had missed the bus to River Forest.
DeFord was masterful, holding the rest of CUW's hitters to a collective 0-24 while Brunette chalked up all 4 of the Falcon hits and scored the only run of the game.
The other fly in DeFord's ointment was Falcon hurler Danielle Burke who shut out the Cougars on 7 hits, working out of a couple of jams for her 13th win of the season.
The game's only run scored in the third when Brunette singled and came around via a pair of Cougar errors.
The win boosted Steve Crook's team to 22-15 while CU- Chicago fell to 10-29.
