For the second consecutive year North Texas is an early stumbling block for Louisiana softball who fell to the Mean Green Saturday.

Megan Kleist surrendered a solo home run, the first earned run against her in 2020, in the seventh in the 2-1 loss. Pinch hitter Koutney Williams hit the home run. Alissa Dalton drove in Louisiana's only run in the loss.

In game two against UTSA, the Cajuns run-ruled the Roadrunners for the second time in two nights, 11-1. The Cajuns hung 8 runs in the fourth, which included a Brittany Holland grand-slam. Julie Rawls also drove in four runs Saturday. She hit a third inning three-run home run.

The Cajuns play North Dakota Tuesday.
