Nebraska Softball Triumphs Over Omaha with Impressive 8-4 Victory

In an adrenaline-pumping match, the Nebraska softball team asserted dominance with an 8-4 win against Omaha this past Sunday at Bowlin Stadium. This clash marked the first of the eight exhibition games slated for the Huskers this fall.

From the beginning, Nebraska showcased their prowess, registering a commendable 12-7 hit over Omaha. A highlight of the game was the outstanding performance from the first three batters in the Nebraska lineup – Jordy Bahl, Katelyn Caneda, and Ava Bredwell. This terrific trio went 6-for-9, contributing three runs and a commendable six RBIs. Bredwell, showcasing top form, delivered a 2-for-2 performance, complete with a two-run homer. Caneda followed suit, finishing 2-for-3 with three RBIs, and Bahl complimented with a 2-for-4, featuring an RBI double, culminating in two runs.

Alina Felix and Dakota Carter weren’t left behind, both securing two hits. Carter’s performance was particularly noteworthy with two scores to his name.

Pitching was in safe hands with Bahl who, across 5.0 innings, restricted Omaha to four runs (only two earned) on four hits, topping it off with four strikeouts. The prowess of her game play was evident when she limited UNO to a staggering 1-for-18 with runners on base. Subsequently, Emmerson Cope seamlessly took over the last 2.0 innings, allowing no runs even while navigating through three hits.

For Omaha, it was Kamryn Meyer who bore the brunt of the defeat, conceding six runs (two of which were earned) on eight hits over 3.2 innings.

The Huskers’ spirit was evident right from the onset. Though they faced early challenges in the first and second innings, they displayed commendable resilience. Their breakthrough moment came in the third inning, led by Bahl and solidified by Bredwell’s iconic two-run homer, putting the Huskers firmly in the lead.

Omaha’s valiant attempt to claw back in the fourth inning brought a temporary tie. However, the Huskers, unwavering, pulled back in the bottom of the fourth, adding four runs to the scoreboard.

The contest continued with Omaha seizing an opportunity in the fifth, leveraging a couple of Nebraska errors. But Nebraska’s response was swift and decisive. They augmented their lead with two further runs in the fifth inning, setting the stage for their eventual victory.

With the win secured, Nebraska now sets their sights on Kansas City for next Saturday’s double-header. The Huskers will then return to their home turf on Sunday, ready to face Creighton at 2 p.m. at Bowlin Stadium, an event with free admission, promising a riveting game for the fans.
