LAS VEGAS, NEV. - The University of Minnesota softball team came up just short in its season-opener, dropping a 1-0 decision against DePaul on Saturday afternoon at the Sportco Kick-Off Classic.

Minnesota allowed an unearned run in the bottom of the first inning, and that was all DePaul (3-1) needed to hold on for the win.

Junior pitcher Sara Moulton (0-1) went the distance for the Gophers, allowing just two hits and striking out seven Blue Demon batters. But DePaul's Kirsten Verdun picked up the victory by also surrendering just two hits and fanning 12 in the victory.

Sophomore third baseman Kaitlyn Richardson had a double in three at-bats, while sophomore shortstop Erica Meyer had Minnesota's other hit with an infield single.

The Gophers had runners in scoring position in the third, fourth, and fifth innings, but were unable to come up with a hit when they needed one.

DePaul's lone run scored when Allie Braden drew a walk to lead off the game, advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Samantha Dodd, then moved to third on a wild pitch by Moulton, and scored on a two-out fielding error by Richardson.

Minnesota will play its second game of the day this afternoon against Texas Tech. The first pitch is slated for approximately 5:45 p.m. CT.
