NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma’s NCAA record win streak in softball ended at 71 games on Sunday with a 7-5 loss to Louisiana in eight innings.

The Sooners claimed their third straight national title last season, then won their first 18 games this season before losing to the Rajin’ Cajuns at Love’s Field, the sparkling new facility that opened last week.

Oklahoma (18-1) committed three errors.

The Rajin’ Cajuns (10-12) led 4-2 in the seventh before Oklahoma rallied to force an extra inning.

Louisiana’s Sam Roe singled in the eighth to score two and gave the Rajin’ Cajuns a 7-4 lead. Oklahoma’s Cydney Sanders hit a solo homer in the bottom of the inning and Alynah Torres singled with two outs before Jayda Coleman, a first-team All-American last season, grounded out to end the game.

Chloe Riassetto earned the win. She went the distance and gave up four earned runs on 11 hits.

Oklahoma’s next game will be on Wednesday at home against Texas A&M Commerce.
