Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajun softball team was victorious in the opening day of the Baton Rouge NCAA Regional on Friday, defeating the Northwestern St. Demons, 3-0, at Tiger Park.

Louisiana, playing in their 15th-consecutive post-season regional, and their 23rd in the last 24 years, scored in the bottom half of the opening inning, when Sara Corbello drew a bases-loaded walk, scoring Nerissa Myers, to give them a 1-0 lead.

The game stayed that way until the bottom of the fourth, when Sarah Draheim delivered a clutch two-out single, scoring Myers, to extend the UL lead to 2-0.

The Cajuns tacked on an insurance run in the bottom half of the sixth inning, when Shellie Landry singled, driving home pinch runner Meagan Thomas, to make it 3-0.

That was more than enough for sophomore right-hander Jordan Wallace, who secured her 29th win of the year, agianst only seven defeats, as she twirled a one-hit shutout, while walking six, and striking out 11.

Kylie Roos (17-9) suffered the loss for Northwestern St.

With the win, the Cajuns improved to 44-13 on the year, while the Demons dropped to 40-14.
