#1 Oklahoma 17
Marist 0 (5)
The Marist Red Foxes lost their opening game at the Norman, OK Regional to the number one team in the country Friday night.
Not much to say about this one from the Marist point of view. The Red Foxes were overwhelmed right from the beginning, as the Sooners put up eight runs in the first inning and never looked back. Oklahoma learned a hard lesson four years ago when they were upset on their home field by North Dakota State, and did not stop pressing in this tournament game. They finished with 13 hits; Lauren Chamberlin led the way with five RBIs. Kyrsten Van Natta had the Red Foxes' only hit of the game.
Marist will have a good shot at winning their first ever NCAA Tournament game when they face the Fordham Rams Saturday at 4:30 pm EDT in Norman. Oklahoma. The loser of that game will be eliminated from the tournament.
