Cowgirls Fall To Hood River Valley
After winning their first league game of the season on Thursday, the Crook County Cowgirls softball squad took a step backward on Tuesday as they were dominated by the Hood River Valley Eagles.
The host Eagles were in control the entire game, rolling to an 11-1 win in six innings of play.
Berkley Puckett was the offensive star for the Cowgirls, going 2-for-3 at the plate with a pair of singles. Puckett also scored the Cowgirls' lone run in the game.
Autumn Coffelt was 1-for-2 with a double and one RBI. Liz Barker had the only other hit for the Cowgirls.
"We had our opportunities with runners in scoring position, but could not capitalize," Crook County head coach Jeremy Puckett said.
With the loss, the Cowgirls fell to 1-11 in league play and 8-15 overall, while Hood River Valley improved to 8-4 in league and 16-6 overall.
The Cowgirls are back in action tonight when they go on the road to take on the No. 1-ranked Ridgeview Ravens, 10-2, 17-2, in a doubleheader. Game one is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m.
The Cowgirls then close out the season on Tuesday when they host the Redmond Panthers, 3-9, 9-13, in a 4:30 p.m. game.
