Broncos Fall In Series Opener At San Jose State
SAN JOSE, Calif. - The Boise State softball team dropped its series opener to San Jose State on Friday with an 8-2 loss at the SJSU Softball Field. The loss was the season-high fifth straight for the Broncos (17-14, 3-3) as they continue their inaugural journey through the Western Athletic Conference.

The Spartans (16-26, 3-4) were able to score early and often, scoring at least one run in each of the first four innings. In the first, the Spartans were able to capitalize on a Bronco error and took an early 1-0 lead. They added two more in the second to push the lead to 3-0.

Both teams were able to push across a run in the third frame. Jessi Hanna led off the inning with a walk and was sacrificed over to second by Allie Crump. Hanna later came around to score on a Spartan error to cut the lead to 3-1. The Spartans responded with a run of their own in the bottom half. The Broncos continued the scoring streak in the fourth with their second run. Kathy Cox, who went 2-for-3 on the day, led off the inning with single up the middle and later came around to score when Laurel Wyatt stroked a double into left center. That would be the last run of the afternoon for the Broncos as the Spartans rolled off two more runs in the fourth and a pair in the sixth.

The WAC-rivals will hit the diamond again tomorrow at noon (MT) for a doubleheader and the conclusion of the season series.
