UHV Softball Sweeps Jarvis Christian This Weekend

Posted: Updated:

Gabby Davila (JR/Houston, TX) and Angelica Davidson (SO/Portland, TX) each drove in a pair of runs to help the University of Houston-Victoria Jaguars to a three-game sweep over the Jarvis Christian Lady Bulldogs with a 6-2 win in a Red River Athletic Conference softball matchup on Sunday.

 

The Jaguars improved to 19-15 on the year and 11-7 in conference, while Jarvis fell to 4-19 overall and 2-11 in conference.

 

The Lady Bulldogs looked primed for an upset, scoring solo runs in the first and third to grab a 2-0 lead.

 

The Jaguars finally broke through with a three-run fifth to take the lead for good, before adding three more insurance runs in the seventh.

 

Alyssa Adames (JR/Victoria, TX) opened the fifth with her first home run of the season, a solo shot to left. Marissa Longoria (SO/Houston, TX) then reached on an error, stole second and moved to third on a ground out by Alyssa Dial (SR/Victoria, TX). Longoria then raced home on Davila's ground out to short.

 

Emily Flores (SO/Houston, TX) followed with a single to center and raced home on a double by Lisa Sosa(FR/Corpus Christi, TX).

 

Dial got the fireworks going in the seventh drawing a one-out walk and then stealing second and third. Davila's ground out plated Dial for a 4-2 lead.

 

Flores then tripled to center and Sosa walked, before both runners raced home on a single to center by Davidson.

 

Cheyenne Galindo (FR/Ganado, TX) went the distance in the circle to pick up the win for the Jaguars. She allowed two runs on four hits and no walks, while striking out two.

 

The Jaguars return to action Tuesday when the host NCAA Division III Trinity University in a non-conference doubleheader beginning at 5 p.m. at the Victoria Youth Sports Complex.
