    LAS CRUCES, N.M. – Senior Kara Komp doubled to the deep left corner to score Courtney Heeley in the bottom of the fourth inning to record an RBI against Nebraska Saturday during the Hotel Encanto Invitational. The Huskers defeated the Flames 13-4 in five innings.

    “We can’t afford to give teams extra opportunities, especially teams like Nebraska and New Mexico State,” head coach Michelle Venturella said. “We will continue to work to get better every day. I am glad we are being tested early as I know our kids will respond.”

    In addition to Komp, Jacki Fletcher and Laura Swan also recorded RBI.

    UIC opened the game with back-to-back base hits by Natalie Hernandez and Kara Komp. Coryn Schmit then filled the bases as she was hit by a pitch, before Swan was walked to send Hernadez home for the Flames opening run in the opening frame. Komp then added another run to the board with Fletcher being rewarded the RBI with as she reached on a fielder’s choice.

    Nebraska then gained one run in the bottom half of the first, before recording a grand slam and solo homerun to post a 5-2 lead over the Flames.

    Bridget Boyle started inside the circle for UIC and recorded her first career strikeout in the bottom of the second as she blanked Kiki Stokes.

    UIC then chipped away in the third and fourth innings, scoring one a piece. In the third, Swan scored in the third inning, while Kara Komp doubled to deep left field to score Courtney Heeley in the bottom of the fourth.

    Nebraska then added seven runs to the board to close out the game in a 13-4 decision.
