Boise State Has Defeated Notre Dame 3-1

Fantastic win for the Boise State softball team, 3-1 over Notre Dame in San Diego.  Christina Capobianco continued her hot hitting with a 3-3 performance at the plate and Aubray Zell allowed just five hits in getting another complete game win.

Kellie Caplan and Capobianco each laced two-out singles in the bottom of the third to get the Broncos going.  Allie Crump then sent a two-out double to left center that plated both runners and Boise State was up 2-0.   The Fighting Irish came back with a solo homer by Alexa Maldonado to cut the lead to 2-1.  It was the first home run allowed by Zell this season.

Tara Glover led off the fifth with her second hit of the game; Glover now has seven multi-hit games in 10 as a Bronco.  Glover advanced to second on a wild pitch and third on a ground out.  Capobianco then connected with her third hit of the game and Glover scored to make it 3-1.  

Boise State is off to its best start in school history at 7-3 and will try to continue that streak at the Cathedral City Classic February 23-25 in California.
