Aggie Softball Falls To Utah Valley 4-1 In Opening Game At WAC Tournament

Top seeded New Mexico State was stunned by Utah Valley losing 4-1 in their opening round game of the 2014 WAC Tournament in Seattle, WA. Playing the first game of the day in Seattle after having their game rescheduled from Thursday night due to constant rain delays, the Aggie offense never got untracked on Friday morning. The Aggies did not record their first hit until the bottom of the fourth inning, a Fiana Finau single.

Meanwhile, Utah Valley scored in the first, third and sixth innings to build a 4-0 lead, a lead that could have been much larger if not for some magic from Celisha Walker on the mound. The Aggies were able to get out of a bases loaded, no out jam in the top of the fourth inning after Walker was able to get a double play getting a force out at home and the second out at first base on a little tapper in front of home plate.
