Carson, Calif..--- San Francisco State University Gators (38-18) blanked the #2 Humboldt State University Lumberjacks (60-5) 1-0 in the second round of the 2005 NCAA Division II West Regional this afternoon at CSU Dominguez Hills Toro Diamond. SF State junior pitcher Sonja Garnett (Chino, CA/Chino HS) pitched her second complete game shutout of the tournament by four-hitting the Lumberjacks.

The games only run came in the top of the fifth inning when Gator first baseman Nichole Ramirez (San Lorenzo, CA/Arroyo HS) doubled to left field to open the inning. She advanced to third on a sacrifice by Lauren Dowell (Jr, OF, LaVerne, CA/St. Lucys Priory HS). With one out, Amanda Meyer (Fr, OF, Roseville, CA/Granite Bay HS) hit a sacrifice fly to right field which scored Ramirez with what proved to be the game-winner.
