Softball season comes to an end
By Connor Thompson
Grizzlies ended their season last week against the Westwood Lumberjacks. The Grizzlies’ season didn’t go as planned, as they only won one game but they tied for second in the Feather River League.
The Lady Grizz lost both games of their double-header against the Big Valley Cardinals on May 3 in Big Valley, 17-0 and 10-0.
The first game the Grizzlies’ defense had no answer for the Cardinals, as they allowed Big Valley to score tens runs in the first two innings. The Grizz tried to gain the momentum back from their opponent; however, the Cardinals’ pitching proved to be difficult for the Grizz to mount a come back.
The second game of the double header was called after the fifth inning due to the ten-run rule, beating the Grizzlies 10-0. The Cardinals maintained their dominance both on offense and defense, as their success led to ten runs in four innings.
The Lady Grizz lost both their games of their double against the Tulelake Honkers at home on May 5, 16-2 and 10-4.
The first game of the double header ended after four innings due to the ten-run rule. The first inning was the proving point, as the Honkers jumped out to an early 5-2 lead the grizzlies couldn’t overcome. The next two innings the Honkers scored 11 more runs and held the Grizz to 0.
Momentum shifted in the Grizzlies’ favor in the second game, and they came out with great offense, scoring three runs in two innings and holding the Honkers to two runs. However, the Honkers fought back to tie the game in the fourth inning, and managed to take a two run led in the sixth. The Honkers scored four more runs in the last inning to seal up the victory.
The Grizz lost both games of their double header against the Westwood Lumberjacks, 13-0 and 15-0, at home on May 10.
Westwood started the first game with great defense, and the Grizzlies had no answer to the Lumberjacks’ dominance. The Grizz managed to hold the Lumberjacks scoreless in the second inning, but the third and fourth inning Westwood took the momentum into their favor, scoring 10 more runs and helping them to victory.
The second game the Lumberjacks kept their momentum rolling, as they scored every inning and wouldn’t give the Grizz any chance to catch up. The first three innings proved to be the deciding factors in the game, as the Grizzlies let the Lumberjacks take an early 11-run lead and maintain their dominance in the next two innings.
