CUW softball wins 1-0 over CU- Chicago

River Forest

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.
