ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - It took nine innings but the New Mexico softball team (27-23, 1-5) finally got its first conference win of the season. The Lobos beat Utah 7-6 in the bottom of the ninth of game two on a wild pitch by Brianna Gourdin that scored senior Jen Sena who pinch ran for sophomore Iraina Ogas.

The scoring started in game two with a four run inning put together by the Lobos in the second. Sophomore Jamar Bynum doubled to right field to drive home senior Sabrina Sandberg and junior Ashley Shartzer. One batter later, sophomore Stephanie Kennedy launched a two-run home run to right field that scored Bynum.

In the fourth inning, the Kennedy singled to right, allowing freshman Ryanne Hodgins to score from second. Senior Ora Hensley also had an RBI single in the fourth, bringing home Kennedy.

Utah chipped its way back into the game, scoring two runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings. Kate Nygaard had a two run home run in the fourth and in the sixth. Texie Criddle tripled and scored a run in the fifth.

Ogas earned the win in game two, pitching three innings of relief for two hits, two walks and two strikeouts. Senior Amy Dumas started the game, going five innings. Junior Ashley Perkins also pitched one inning of relief.

Bynum went 3-5 with two RBI and one run scored in game two. Kennedy and Hensley were both 2-4.

The pitching dual in game one lasted until the eighth inning when Ogas gave up a home run first-pitch home run to Devina Quintero. The Lobos managed to get a runner on base in the bottom of the inning but couldn't score, falling 1-0.

Ogas gave a five-hit complete game performance for the loss. Brianna Gourdin had an eight-hit complete game shutout against the Lobos for the win. Hodgins led the Lobos at the plate, going 2-3.

The Lobos host BYU tomorrow for a doubleheader at Lobo Field starting at 1 p.m.
