The UTPB softball team got its latest tournament off to a good start, winning two games Friday at the Cactus Classic at Lincoln Park.

The Falcons (7-5) defeated California University of Pennsylvania 7-6 in the first game and beat Fort Lewis College 3-0 in the second game.

UTPB got off to a fast start against the Vulcans (0-1), scoring five runs in the first inning and leading 6-0 after two. 

The Vulcans made their rally and got within 6-4 in the top of the fifth before an RBI double from Choco Munoz gave the Falcons the insurance run they needed. 

UTPB jumped out against Fort Lewis (2-5) with two runs in the second inning and added another in the seventh.

Abrie Castillo pitched a complete-game shutout for the Falcons, scattering six hits with a walk and a strikeout.

The Falcons continue play Saturday with two more games starting at 4 p.m. against Lindenwood and 6:30 p.m. against Simon Fraser.
