Cougars Split On Opening Day Of Crowne Plaza Classic

Feb. 20, 2004

Box Score

HOUSTON, Texas - Behind the two-hit pitching of sophomore Crystal Briscoe and senior Jenny Johnson, the University of Houston salvaged a split in their two games at the Crowne Plaza Classic, defeating Centenary College, 1-0. Earlier in the day the Cougars were victimized by a no-hitter by Nebraska's Peaches James, falling to the eigth-ranked Cornhuskers, 2-0.

Houston improves to 9-4 on the year and will face Florida at 5 pm and Indiana at 7 pm in Day Two of the three-day tournament.

The Cougars only run against the Ladies came off the bat of senior Arelis Ferreris, who smashed her first home run and 30th of her career leading off the fourth inning. Houston threatened again in the seventh with runners at first and second with two outs, but junior Kim Nesloney lined out to third to end the threat.

Briscoe was on the verge of her first career no-hitter as she entered the seventh inning, but Centenary's Micah Rhodes ripped a single up the middle to break up Briscoe's bid. Johnson came in to shut the door, recording her fourth save of the season in the process. Briscoe struck out eight in six innings of work to run her 2004 record to 3-0.

The Cougars and Cornhuskers matched each other's goose eggs until the seventh inning. Nebraska's Brittney Yolo led off the top of the inning with a single to right field. After two outs Trisha Tannahill singled up the middle to put runners at the corners. Nicole Trimboli ripped a single past UH first baseman Michelle Keith to score Yolo, and when Cougar shortstop Jaci Gonzalez muffed the throw in from the outfield, Tannahill raced home with Nebraska's second run.

 

 

Houston managed only three base runners all game, with James striking out 13 Cougars in the process.

In the bottom of the fourth the Cougars landed their first base runner, when sophomore Brandi Clark reached first on a one-out fielding error by Nebraska shortstop Devin Porter. Junior Kristen Glowacz grounded into what appeared to be an inning-ending 4-6-3 double play, but Porter airmailed the throw to second, allowing Glowacz to reach second base. The Cougar threat was thwarted when senior Arelis Ferreris grounded out to second.
