Print Article

COEUR d’ALENE — Hailey Lyons hit a three-run homer in each game to propel the Coeur d’Alene Vikings to a sweep of the Post Falls Trojans in 5A Inland Empire League softball play Saturday at Larry Schwenke Field.

Coeur d’Alene won 8-1 and 9-4.

Lyons finished 3 for 3 with four RBIs in the first game for Coeur d’Alene (7-2, 4-2 5A IEL). Halle Kane hit a two-run single in the second inning for the Vikings, and Alexis Blankenship drove in two runs, one with a fifth-inning double.

Natalie Sell struck out 14 and scattered five hits in the opener, and the lone run by Post Falls (7-6, 1-5) was unearned.

“Natalie pitched what could have been her best game of the year,” Coeur d’Alene coach Bobbi Darretta said. “The entire team played great behind her, got some timely hits and just worked really well as a team. We were able to string some hits together. I was really happy with how our team played today.”

In the second game, Lyons expanded a 6-4 Viking lead with her three-run shot in the sixth. Sell also added a solo homer.

Kahlea Dumas went 2 for 3 and scored two runs in the nightcap for Post Falls.

Coeur d’Alene plays host to Lake City on Tuesday in a 5A IEL doubleheader.

Post Falls plays host to Lewiston on Wednesday in a league doubleheader.

Lake City 15-7

Lewiston 1-0

COEUR d’ALENE — Ashley Kaufman struck out 11 in four innings in the first game, and hit a pair of two-run doubles and finished 3 for 4 with five RBIs in the opener as the Timberwolves swept the visiting Bengals in 5A IEL play.

Ashlynn Allen went 3 for 3 with two RBIs and three runs scored in the opener for Lake City (12-0, 6-0 5A IEL). Reilley Chapman went 3 for 3 and scored three runs. Abby Jankay and Olivia Zufelt each hit two-run singles for the T-Wolves.

In the second game, Lake City led 1-0 through four innings, before scoring three runs in the fifth and three more in the sixth to pull away.

Abby Gray hit a two-run homer in the fifth inning for the Timberwolves, and Jalyssa Beamer added a two-run shot in the sixth.

Amanda Curry struck out four in five shutout innings for Lake City, and Kaufman fanned four in two innings of relief.

“I am really proud of this group of girls,” Lake City coach Jesse Lenz said. “It really starts and ends with the core group of seniors we have had the majority of four years. Lewiston played really well in the second game, but we battled and were able to add on late. It has been a great start to the league season, but we have to continue to prepare for the second half of the season.”

Lake City is scheduled to play host to Moses Lake in a doubleheader on Monday.
