The Quincy Trojans opened strong with two runs in the bottom of the first in- ning, and then both teams added two runs in the third. Portola took a 5-4 lead with three runs in the fourth. The Tigers added one run in the fifth and Quincy scored one in the sixth to bring the score to 6-5 in favor of Portola. Each team registered two runs in the seventh inning, and Portola came away with a one-run win. Aj Hell and Greg Hinds shared the PtChing duties for Portola. Hell went four innings against 21 batters and gave up four hits and two earned runs. Hinds went three innings against 16 bat- ters, giving us four hits and four earned runs.

The Tigers beat Quincy 3-1 FRC softball wins three The Feather River College softball team made a state- ment in the Golden Valley Conference this past week- end by winning three of four games. The Golden Eagles began their weekend by hosting the Butte College Roadrun- ners April 4. The first game proved to be a tough contest as the Roadrunners got three runs in the sixth and two runs in the seventh to beat FRC 5-6. In that game, Danielle Ming, Codi Kaiser and Mon- ica Hibdon who all had two hits led the Golden Eagles by. Down 3-6 in the seventh inning the Golden Eagles rallied for two runs as Codi Kaiser hit a two-run, inside the park homerun. The Eagles continued the inning and get the winning run on base, only to finally go down in the seventh. The second game was just as intense. Feather River jumped out to an early 2-0 lead as All Blesse doubled down the right field line, plating Codi Kaiser and Monica Hibdon. The Eagles once again got on the score- board in the second with Andrea Gonzales' liner up the middle, scoring Amanda German. In the third inning, FRC pushed across the final run on a fielder's choice. Four runs is all the Golden Eagles needed as Heather Kelley worked a fantastic game, giving up only three runs on six hits while striking out six. "Kelley kept the Butte hit- ters off balance all after- noon. She mixed her pitches well and was consistently down in the strike zone," said head coach Josh Tay- lor. The Golden Eagles trav- eled to Lassen College April 5 for two very important Golden Valley Conference games. Pitching was the key for both of the games as both Heather Kelley and Lindsey Irving dominated the Lassen College hitters all afternoon. Game one saw Heather Kelley's best performance of the 2009 season with a 2-0 shutout. Head Coach Josh Taylor said "Heather was fantastic. She was able to throw four pitches for strikes and con- sistently get ground balls." Kelley gave up only three scattered hits over seven in- nings, while striking out four Lassenhitters. The offense was lead by Amanda German who had two hits including a big RBI single in the sixth to give the Golden Eagles a two-run lead. In game two, it was pitch- ing again for the Golden Ea- gles. Lindsey Irving domi- nated the Lassen hitters with a consistent mix of pitches on both sides of the plate. Irving surrendered only four hits over seven innings while striking out five. Danielle Ming, All Blesse, and Lindsey Irving, who all had two hits each, led the of- fense. Codi Kaiser also proved to be a thorn in Lassen' side, stealing five bases on the day and continually putting pressure on the Cougars de- fense. "These were big wins to- day," said coach Taylor, "this ball club continues to 'improve and work extreme- ly hard, I am proud of each one of them." The Golden Eagles host the number one team in the state Wednesday, April 8, when the Siskiyous Eagles come to town.
