Lady Lions clinch share of SCL with wins over Fall River

Megan Dean receives home run congratulations from Coach Harold Bennett.

Megan Dean receives home run congratulations from Coach Harold Bennett.

The Etna Lions softball team played home run derby in their double header sweep of Fall River on Friday. The home squad launched seven long balls, with Cleo Smith leading the way with three. Katie Turner hit a pair of home runs, and Megan Dean and Cailey Rizzardo each had one.

Etna took game-one 9-6, and won the second tilt 11-1 in five innings. With the wins, the Lions clinched at least a share of the Shasta Cascade League crown.

While, in the end, Etna dominated the day, Fall River did have its moments in game-one. The Bulldogs were first on the board via a double, a sacrifice and an RBI fielder’s choice in the second inning.

It took the Etna bats a bit to warm up. But when they did, it was explosive. Megan Dean led off the bottom of the third inning with a big fly, tying the game 1-1. With two outs, Rizzardo singled. Carson Dickinson followed with a double, scoring Rizzardo. Katie Turner hammered a homer, for a 4-1 Lion lead. (more…)

In the bottom of the fourth, Rob Thom, Robinson, Steve Lampert, Trevor Downey, Connor Eastlick and Lane Clark all found their way home, extending the Etna lead to 8-1. Eastlick doubled, and Robinson and Lampet had singles. (more…)
