BR falls on diamond

Ashley Proust pitched a solid game and Christine Exline connected in two of three at bats, but it wasn’t enough for the Bear River girls softball team to hold of Cordova Friday.

Cordova scored twice, while keeping the Bruins off the board, to win 2-0.

The loss dropped the Bruins to 1-1 in early-season play.

“It was a tough game,” said Bear River coach Duane Zauner. “We had girls get to second base a couple of times, but we couldn’t get them in.”

Cordova’s runs came in the fifth and seventh innings of the game.

Exline was 2-3 at the plate, including a double.

Bear River takes the field again at home on Wednesday when it hosts Truckee.

NU gets win

The Nevada Union girls softball team grabbed its second win of the young season with an 8-1 win over Golden Sierra Friday.

Kari Bauman started on the mound for the Miners and wen six innings. Bauman had four strikeouts while giving up three walks and allowing one run.

Amanda Poteet came in to relieve in the seventh and worked out of a bases-loaded, no-out situation.
