CATHEDRAL CITY, Calif. - The No. 9 University of Oregon softball team (11-3) staked another key win with its 11-2 victory over Nebraska (10-3) to cap Saturday's action in the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic.

The Ducks posted their fifth win this year in less than seven innings, and also logged their second straight win in the series (and fourth since the teams' first meeting 1998).

Senior second baseman Kaylan Howard paced the Oregon offense with a 3-for-3 game at the plate and walked in her other at-bat.

In the circle, All-America senior Jessica Moore (6-2) struck out four, gave up three hits, walked one, and both of her runs allowed were earned.

Sophomore Karissa Hovinga worked the final inning, struck out one, walked one, and allowed no hits.

In the first inning, junior first baseman Kailee Cuico started UO's scoring with a homer to right center field, and drove in Howard (who had stroked a two-out single up the middle).

Cuico's two-out round-tripper marked her third game-winning RBI and fourth homer of the campaign - both team highs in '13.

Three Duck freshmen loaded the bases in the second inning with no outs, thanks to a hit by pitch of Danica Mercado, walk to Koral Coast and bunt single by Janelle Lindvall. Junior shortstop Courtney Ceo knocked in the next run on an error by the shortstop, and UO's other three runs scored on Howard's single and error by the left fielder.

UO struck for three more runs in the fourth inning, thanks to three walks to open the inning to Lindvall, senior right fielder Samantha Pappas and Ceo. Howard delivered a two-run single to right field, and sophomore center fielder Janie Takeda later scored from third base on a wild pitch.

Clubbing her first collegiate homer in the sixth inning, Takeda knocked in UO's final two runs on a 3-2 pitch that sailed over the right field fence.

Both of Nebraska's two runs came in the fourth inning on a two-run homer by senior Brooke Thomason.

In the circle for NU, starter Tatum Edwards (6-3) struck out two, walked four, allowed six hits, and five of her nine runs allowed were earned. Danica Bishop worked the final two innings, struck out three, walked one, yielded two hits, and both of her runs allowed were earned.

Earlier Saturday, Oregon held off Cal Poly (3-9) from staking its third upset of a top-20 foe this year with a 2-1 victory.

Freshman Cheridan Hawkins (3-1) struck out one, allowed only one hit, walked three, and her run allowed in the six-inning start was unearned.

Moore pitched the final inning and logged her first save of the campaign after she struck out one, walked one, and allowed no hits or runs.

The Mustangs scored their run in the second inning after a walk and error in center field was followed by an RBI double by Mariah Cochiolo.

UO tied the game in the fourth inning after Takeda led off with a single up the middle, then scored on a double by Cuico to left center field.

In the fourth inning, junior shortstop Courtney Ceo delivered her second game-winning RBI of the season, thanks to her two-out double down the left field line. Pappas scored the run after she had doubled to left field the prior at-bat.

Mustang starter Chloe Wurst (2-3) pitched her fourth complete game of the season, allowed five hits, struck out seven, walked two, and both of her runs allowed were earned.

Looking ahead to Sunday's final day action, UO plays UNLV at 11:30 a.m. and San Diego State at 2 p.m.
