DAVIS, Calif. – On the final day of the NorCal Challenge, Santa Clara softball was topped by UC Davis 7-0 and Sacramento State 6-3.
UC Davis (18-11) got its bats going from the start, scoring three runs in the first against Santa Clara (4-20) starter Aubree Kim and then scored four in the next two innings to add to its lead.
Marisa Given was 2-for-2 with a double, a home run, and two RBIs to lead the Aggies offensive attack. Alex Sotomayor was also 2-for-2 with a double and an RBI with Frankie Mendoza and Isabella Leon adding RBIs as well.
Kate Kibby (7-4) went 5 shutout innings out of the bullpen to pick up the win. She allowed just two hits with two strikeouts.
Kim (2-9) lasted just 1 inning, allowing three runs on two hits with two walks.
The Broncos offense consisted of four singles from four different players.
Despite picking up just two hits on the game, the Broncos (4-21) were able to get the tying run to the plate in the seventh after an error made it 6-3, but Morgan Modesto flied out to left with runners on the corners to end the game.
After scoring in the first, the Hornets (14-8) put up a run in the third and one in the fourth before taking a 5-0 lead in the fifth on a two-run home run by Suzy Brookshire.
Brookshire went 3-for-4 in the game with two home runs, three runs scored, and three RBIs. Sydnee Strong also hit a solo shot and Nene Alas picked up a pair of hits and scored a run out of the leadoff spot.
Danielle Sperry (3-1) tossed a complete game while allowing three runs, two earned, on two hits with four walks and four strikeouts.
McCall James (0-3) also went the distance, but got the loss. She allowed six runs on 13 hits with a walk and two strikeouts.
Kelsie Barnard had both Santa Clara hits and added an RBI as well.
The Broncos return to action Saturday at 2:45 p.m. vs. Georgia Tech at the Matador Classic in Northridge.
