AUSTIN - Megan Willis delivered a RBI-single in the bottom of the seventh to score Shannon Thomas as No. 2 Texas won a 3-2 seesaw battle over the University of Houston softball team in the championship game of the Time Warner Texas Invitational Sunday afternoon at McCombs Field.

"The thing I told the team after the game is that we played a great game," head coach Kyla Holas said. "It came down to key hits and Texas was able to come with the clutch hits."

Both teams left combined to leave 16 runners on-base. The Cougars left multiple runners on in three separate innings.

Willis knocked a 1-0 pitch past an outstretched Angel Shamblin and by Jessica Valis to centerfield to score Thomas from second base to extend the nations longest winning streak to 22 games.

Valis led UH (16-7) on offense going 2-for-4 picking her team-leading 12th multi-hit game of the season.

Texas (24-1) jumped out in front 1-0 in the third inning on a two-out single by Desiree Williams to centerfield.

The Cougars fought back in the fifth inning and grabbed a 2-1 advantage. Laurie Wagner drew a bases-loaded walk to even the game. Houston took the lead on a wide throw by Texas catcher Megan Willis. She was attempting to pick off Valis at third base and the throw sailed into the outfield allowing Valis trotted home to give UH the 2-1 edge.

 

 

Texas turned to Cat Osterman with the bases loaded to get out of the inning forcing Brandi Clark to fly out to right centerfield.

The Longhorns responded when Williams struck again with another two-out single to score Thomas tying the score at 2-2 in the home half of the fifth.

Houston continues its nine-game roadie with a doubleheader at Texas-Arlington. First pitch against the Mavericks is slated for 5pm. Live stats for both games will be available on UHCougars.com

"This is another challenging week ahead for us," Holas said. "We've got another stretch of seven games in six days against big regional opponents not to mention we open conference play."

Houston returns to the Cougar Softball Stadium to open Conference USA play against East Carolina with a doubleheader Saturday. First pitch against the Pirates is slated for 1pm.
