At Eureka on Friday, visiting Mission-Arlee-Charlo (15-2-1) sent their entire lineup and then some to the plate in the top half of the fifth inning. Leading by double figures with two out, Rheid Crawford put the exclamation point on the contest by smacking a home run. The host Lady Lions (9-7) countered with a home run of their own when Rhianna Hawkins hit a two-run shot in the bottom half of the inning. But the host Lions couldn't close the gap any further.

At Missoula Loyola, Izzy Evans and Jerny Crawford homered, while both Liev Smith and Payton Smith drove in runs to propel the visiting Lady Bulldogs to a 1-0 win against the Breakers.

Sophia Forgey of Arlee pitched the distance for Loyola.

Mission-Arlee-Charlo was set to host a crucial rematch with Florence on Tuesday after the Leader went to press (check leaderadvertiser.com for results). Florence handed the Lady Bulldogs their lone Western B/C loss this season.
