COOLIDGE, Ariz--Despite dropping their third straight in the opener of the double-header, the #14 Arizona Western Matadors (22-8 overall, 11-3 ACCAC) bounced back to salvage a split at the Central Arizona Vaqueras (17-10 overall, 11-7 ACCAC) Saturday afternoon.
The Matadors failed to give Anahi Grijalva any run support in the first game and mustered just two hits against Central starter Sarah Norton, who racked up 13 k's.
The Vaqueras struck for a single run in the third before tacking on piling on five runs in the fifth to wrap up a 6-0 win over AWC.
The Matadors struck early in game 2 with a single run and maintained the 1-0 lead through the third.
The AWC offense opened up in the fourth, striking for six runs. They'd tack on 8 more in the final three innings and withstand five errors behind Kelly Katlabas.
Nicole Moran led the way with a 3-5 day, a homer and 6 RBI. Josie Hernandez added a 4-6 day with four runs scored. Iliana Manzano and Angela Oros each added three hits for AWC.
