The Lone Pine Lady Golden Eagles have been on a rampage, demolishing the Silver Valley Trojans 18-7 last Friday and sending the Mammoth Lady Huskies yelping back up the mountain Tuesday with a 23-8 win.
The Silver Valley win came after Lone Pineâs two-week spring break but there no signs of rust on the Eagles.
âWe came out pretty strong,â said coach Liz Jones, âwith 6 clean infield outs and only 2 errors.â
Amanda Barlese, with 4 hits on 5 at-bats, and Lacie Jones, at 3 for 4, led the hitting streak. âWe racked up a total of 14 hits,â said Jones.
The Lone Pine Golden Eagles nine have turned the corner, logging back-to-back wins over Silver Valley (8-1) last week and over the Mammoth Huskies (16-6) Tuesday.
The corner turned was the nasty error corner. The Eagles have solid pitching and strong offense, but until the game with the Silver Valley Trojans, have been plagued by defensive errors.
âWe had no errors against Silver Valley,â said coach Mike Button.
The win avenges the Eaglesâ season-opening loss, 10-13, to the Trojans last month, a defeat that was rife with errors.
It was great weather for basketball at Frazier Mountain Tuesday as the Bishop Broncos nine got blown off the side of the hill with a 2-10 loss, the teamâs first High Desert League loss since the 2009-10 season.
âIt sounds worse than it really was,â said coach Tim Reid. âWe didnât play that badly, we just made some defensive mistakes. You canât make mistakes against that good a team.
âSome positive things happened. We fought to the end and thatâs a good thing to see.â
