Southern Oregon shut-out No. 5 Oregon Tech behind great pitching from Jordyn Kurtz and 5 RBI from Katie Moy to send Oregon Tech to its 3rd straight CCC loss 8-0 in game 1 of a scheduled doubleheader. Game 2 was suspended due to rain in the top of the 2nd inning with SOU leading 3-0; no makeup date was scheduled. Southern Oregon improves to 17-16 overall and 7-10 in conference play. Oregon Tech slips to 30-7 and 13-4 in the CCC.
After a quite 1st inning by both teams in game 1, Southern Oregon erupted for 5-runs in the top of the 2nd inning taking advantage of 3-walks and 3-hits highlighted by a Katie Moy single that scored two.
Moy would add to the lead in the 6th crushing a 3-run homerun to right-center field to put the game away for SOU 8-0.
