HONOLULU – Zoe Schafer provided all three RBIs Monday in SIUE softball's 5-3 loss at Hawaii.

Schafer's bid for a game-tying home run to center field came up just short in the top of the seventh.

"The key is that we had our opportunities," said SIUE Interim Head Coach Jessica Jones. "We just didn't capitalize on them."

The Cougars are now 7-7 and are idle Tuesday before beginning the Rainbow Wahine Classic Wednesday against No. 5-ranked and undefeated Alabama (20-0) at 6 p.m. CT.

SIUE is scheduled to play five games total in the Rainbow Wahine Classic with two games against Alabama, two against Niagara and one more against Hawaii.

Schafer's bat provided the key hits that drove home all three SIUE runs. Her first two RBIs came in the third inning on a single to left field that drove home Alyssa Heren and Jill Niehaus. Heren would score once again in the fifth on Schafer's second hit of the day.

SIUE outhit Hawaii 8-5 with Sydney Bina joining Schafer with two hits.

Isabella Dino was credited with the victory and improved to 6-2 for Hawaii, which never trailed after scoring three runs in the first inning. Emily Ingles took the loss for SIUE after yielding four runs in the first two innings.

Corrina Rivas threw the final four innings for SIUE and gave up just hits.

"She is doing well right now," added Jones.
