Lincoln 2, Bear River 1
The Lady Bruins dropped their second straight Pioneer Valley League game Wednesday, falling on the road to Lincoln by a run.
Both teams got strong efforts from the circle as both the Lady Bruins and Lady Zebras got quality starts from their pitchers.
Bear River's Kaitlyn Maddux took the hard-luck loss after allowing just two unearned runs off three hits while striking out six and walking one.
Lincoln's Lexi Sheiring was dominant with 15 strikeouts to go with one hit and one run allowed.
Lincoln broke a scoreless tie with a run in the fifth inning, and added another in the sixth inning to go up, 2-0.
Bear River answered with a run in the seventh when Gabi Royston drove in Maddux with a sacrifice fly, but that would be it for the Lady Bruins offense.
Bear River (2-9, 1-2 PVL) will face Foothill at home in another league bout Friday.
Bear River 250, Center 277
The Bruins grabbed their second Pioneer Valley League victory of the season, beating the Cougars from Center by 27 strokes Tuesday.
Playing at the Par-37 Cherry Island Golf Course, the Bruins were led by David Aldrich with match-best 42. Hunter Monts was next for the Bruins with a 45, Tyler Cross followed with a 50, Devin Crabb shot a 55 and Hunter Smith rounded things out with a 58.
Bear River is now 2-4 in league play and will face off with Placer next Tuesday.
