HEAR FROM COACH GILLISPIE
“We played great defense, Doocy did a great job on the mound as well. We just didn’t get the bats going and we had some missed offensive opportunities.”
HOW IT HAPPENED
Iowa started off the game swinging with hits from sophomore Aralee Bogar and senior Mallory Kilian but left both runners on to end the first.
The Hawkeyes and Hurricanes found themselves in a pitcher’s duel with Doocy throwing a no hitter into the fifth inning and Tulsa’s Chenise Delce stymying Iowa’s offense.
Iowa and Tulsa were scoreless through seven innings as the game headed into extra innings.
Junior Havyn Monteer got her first hit of the game and Bogar smacked one up the middle for her first double of the season, advancing Monteer to third. However, the Hawkeyes couldn’t take advantage of the runners in scoring position.
