Nebraska Softball Shines with Double Victories on Saturday

LINCOLN, Neb. – The Nebraska softball team showcased an impressive performance at Bowlin Stadium this past Saturday, registering back-to-back victories against Colorado State and South Dakota. With these triumphs, Nebraska solidified its dominance in their fall exhibition matches, instilling confidence and enthusiasm among the Husker faithful.

In the first matchup against Colorado State, the Huskers clinched a 3-0 victory, largely credited to the brilliant synergy between newcomers Jordy Bahl and Peyton Cody. Bahl was nothing short of spectacular in the circle, presenting a nearly flawless performance. With only one hit allowed and a mere 84 pitches over a complete game, her prowess was evident. Complementing her effort, Peyton Cody shone offensively, driving in all three runs for the Huskers. Their early momentum was set when Cody’s sacrifice fly brought in the game’s first run in the bottom of the first. Nebraska’s two-run sixth inning, punctuated by Cody’s two-run double, further asserted their control over the game.

The second game of the day against South Dakota witnessed the Huskers again taking an early lead and maintaining it throughout the match. A significant four-run inning in the second set the stage, with Katelyn Caneda driving in three runs during the contest. Meanwhile, in the circle, Sarah Harness demonstrated her skill by allowing only one run over four innings, recording five strikeouts. Nebraska’s offensive streak was furthered by the likes of Sydney Gray and Ava Bredwell, who contributed valuable hits and runs to the team’s total. A noteworthy moment was Gray’s RBI triple, a testament to the Huskers’ aggressive and effective gameplay. Although South Dakota managed to get on the scoreboard, the Huskers’ early lead was insurmountable, leading to a 6-2 victory.

Nebraska’s back-to-back wins signify the team’s growth, adaptability, and camaraderie as they progressed through the fall exhibition season. These matches not only served as a testament to individual talent, such as the impressive performances by Bahl, Cody, and Caneda, but also to the collective prowess and potential of the entire team.

As the Huskers wrap up their fall exhibition season, they’re set to face Colorado State again in a pair of matches starting at 10 a.m. on Sunday. Given their recent successes, fans and followers eagerly anticipate another thrilling encounter at Bowlin Stadium.
