Apparently, no one in the Northern 2A want to play the Battle Mountain High School softball team.
For the third time this year, the Lady Longhorns had a league three-game series wiped off the board.
Silver Stage and Incline forfeited games earlier this season and North Tahoe did the same this past weekend.
However, Battle Mountain was able to get two games in this past Saturday in windy and dusty conditions.
Eureka made the short trip into Lander County and Battle Mountain swept the Vandals 17-3 and 17-5 to improve to 15-5 overall and 9-3 in the Northern 2A.
In the opener on Saturday, sophomore Jessa Spring allowed just one earned run, while giving up two hits in five innings of work. She struck out five and walked three.
The Vandals grabbed a 2-0 advantage in the top of the first inning but that proved to be just about all of their offense.
The Lady Longhorns rallied for four runs in the bottom of the first inning and did not trail again.
Battle Mountain added five runs in the second inning and blew the contest open with eight runs in the fourth inning.
The Lady Longhorns collected 10 hits, including a 3-for-4 performance from Spring, who also drove in four runs. Marena Fuller had two hits, two RBI and four runs scored.
Tahlia Gonzalez, Lilliana Haney, Hailee Andersen, Shea Jones and Kelcee Robey each had one hit. Jones and Gonzalez each scored three times and Samantha Leffler had two RBI.
Battle Mountain did not trail in the nightcap and got on the scoreboard early with five runs in the first inning.
The Vandals cut the deficit to 5-2 in the top of the third inning, but the Lady Longhorns countered back with eight runs in the third and four more in the fifth.
Fuller had another strong game at the plate with two hits, four RBI and three runs scored. Gonzalez, Haney, Galileah Benavidez and Robey each had a hit.
Haney picked up the win in the circle, allowing five runs (three earned) in five innings of work. She struck out five and walked three.
Battle Mountain returns to play on Tuesday, April 26, in Lovelock for a 4 p.m. game with Pershing County. The two teams play a doubleheader in Battle Mountain on Saturday, April 30 at 11 a.m.
