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.

“We had no errors against Silver Valley,” said coach Mike Button.
The win avenges the Eagles’ season-opening loss, 10-13, to the Trojans last month, a defeat that was rife with errors.
