— Kansas University’s softball team split of pair of games Saturday, defeating Saint Francis, 10-2, and falling to Kentucky, 4-2.

Kessler (13-7) struck out five in her 15th complete game of the season.

In KU’s victory over Saint Francis, a pair of home runs started and finished KU’s scoring.

Sophomore Chaley Brickey’s seventh home run of the season in the fourth inning gave Kansas a 10-run lead.
