The Chico State softball team beat Montana State Saturday night 9-1 in the Tournament of Champions after a rain storm in Turlock limited the team to only one game on the day.

Due to the rain changes were made to the schedule. The Wildcats were scheduled to play two games Saturday evening against Montana State and Hawai’i Pacific but game one was pushed to the evening and game two against Hawai’i Pacific was cancelled.

The Wildcats scored first in the first inning when Wendy Cardinalli scored off of a throwing error by Montana State’s catcher. Cardinali finished the game with three hits.

Bailey Akins, who had two hits and two RBIs in the game, followed with a single up the middle scoring Kristen Worley.

The ‘Cats later scored three runs in the fifth inning and three more in the sixth to give Chico State a 9-1 win.

In the top of the first inning Worley stole her 24th base on the season which is second in the league for most stolen bases. Ari Marsh had two hits in the game which earned her her 40th hit on the season, the most by any player in the league.

Haley Gilham limited Montana State to only three hits in the game earning her her 14th win on the season which ties for most wins in the league.

Following Saturday nights victory the Wildcats are now 29-3 on the season and 3-0 in the tournament thus far. They continue tournament play at 11:30 a.m. Sunday when Chico State takes on Simon Fraser.
