    CHICAGO - Despite out hitting DePaul 15-7 Sunday afternoon at Wish Field in Chicago, Ill., the University of Houston softball team could not hold onto a 4-0 lead, falling to the Blue Demons 5-4 in nine innings. Houston is now 25-16 for the season and 4-5 in Conference USA play.

    Houston got on the board in the first inning for the third game in a row against DePaul when Kristen Glowacz crushed a two run home run over the left field fence. The Cougars added another run in the first when Brandi Clark pushed Jenilee Skender across the pay station with a two out double.

    The Cougars added their fourth run of the game in the third inning with a Brooke Johnson single which plated Arelis Ferreris to give Houston a 4-0 lead.

    The Blue Demons closed the gap to 4-3 in the sixth inning and tied the game in the bottom of the seventh on a two out home run by Saskia Roberson.

    DePaul grabbed the win in the bottom of the ninth inning as a Christina Douglas ground ball slipped past Cougar second baseman Jamie Adams, plating Sarah Martz.

    Houston had several scoring opportunities in the extra frames, but left the bases loaded in both of their at bats.

    Jenny Johnson took the loss for Houston, going two innings giving up just one hit and no earned runs. Jamie Falco started for Houston, pitching six and two thirds innings giving up three runs on four hits and striking out seven.

    The Cougars will be in action again Friday afternoon when they take on UAB in Birmingham, Ala. Friday's action will see a double header starting at 6 p.m. and Saturday will be a single game starting at 1 p.m.
