Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, March 31, 2010 3C Feather River sot :ball adds wins The Feather River College softball team moved to 6-2 in the Golden Valley Confer- ence after hosting College of the Redwoods and Shasta College March 19-20, and then traveling to Siskiyous College March 24. The FRC Golden Eagles split with Redwoods Friday, March 19, when they won the first game 5-0 and lost the second game 8-1. The next day, Feather Riv- er swept Shasta College by scores of 9-4 and 5-1. The Golden Eagles trav- eled to Siskiyous Wednes- day, March 24, where they won 3-2 in game one before falling 11-5 in game two. Redwoods In the first game against College of the Redwoods, the Golden Eagles proved too much for the Corsairs, as Er- ica Wieck dominated in the pitching circle. Wieck threw her third shutout of the season, going seven strong innings while striking out nine. The Feather River offense got on top in the fourth in- ning, highlighted by a Chelsea Venable lead-off triple and an RBI single to left field by Kylee Rogers. The Eagles broke the game open in the fifth inning, as Dani Ming and Chelsea Ven- able added three more runs on RBI hits. The first game concluded with a final score of 5-0. The second game leaned to the liking of College of the Redwoods. Behind a solid pitching performance by Caitlin Wallace, the Corsairs held the Golden Eagles to on- ly one run on six hits. The Corsairs scored six runs in the third inning and went on to win the game 8-1. Shasta Saturday's doubleheader at home brought the fifth- ranked Shasta College Knights to town for another conference match up. The Golden Eagles rose to the challenge, taking both games of the doubleheader, 9-4 and 5-1. In the first game, it was all Golden Eagles, as Wieck kept the Shasta bats off bal- ance all afternoon. Wieck went all seven innings, striking out eight and giving up five hits. The Feather River bats came to life in an impressive offensive performance. As a team, the Eagles knocked out 15 hits while scoring every inning but two. Venable led the offense with three hits, including two doubles and a home run. Dani Ming, Erica Wieck, Kylee Rogers and Maddie Wamsley all made big con- tributions with two hits each. Game two proved to be a pitchers duel until the sixth inning. The contest remained scoreless, as Annalee Rubio and Cierra Rivera battled to keep each team's hitters off balance. The Golden Eagles finally broke the scoreless tie in the sixth inning on Leah Jus- tice's single to score one Get your next home at the price you set with NO STARTING BIDS.

With the bases loaded and two outs, Dani Ming walked to the plate and quickly found herself in an 0-2 hole. Ming dug herself out of that hole on the next pitch, as she sent the ball over the left field wall for a grand slam. That gave the Eagles a 5-0 lead gong into the seventh inning--all Rubio needed-- as she went the distance and gave up only one run on four hits, while striking out two. Siskiyous The Golden Eagles took the long, four-hour journey north to take on the Siskiy- ous College Eagles, March 24. Feather River jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in game one with a one-out single by Leah Justice. Siskiyous answered with two runs in the bottom of the second. The third inning proved pivotal, as Siskiyous loaded the bases with only one out. Rubio came out of the bullpen to relieve starting pitcher Wieck. Rubio rose to the occasion, striking out the first batter she faced and getting the second batter to fly out to right field, holding Siskiyous to only two runs in the inning. In the fourth inning, Feather River tied the game Need help REPI f L it's mg  ; If can''ll fi somo can. STRUCTION SINCE t984 General Building Contractor Calif.

Potter fell behind in the count 1-2, then de- posited the next pitch over the left center fence for a so- lo home run. This was all the offense Rubio would need, as she closed the door and went on to win the game 3-2. "Rubio did a fantastic job out of the bullpen today to keep her team in the game," said FRC coach Josh Taylor. The second game was ini- tially all Siskiyous, as they jumped out to an early 8-0 lead. The Golden Eagles an- swered back and cut the lead to 8-5, but ran out of innings and went on to lose 11-5 in the second game of the dou- bleheader. Feather River travels to Oroville today, March 31, to take on Butte College. The Golden Eagles' next home game is Saturday, April 17, in a doubleheader against Siskiyous, beginning at noon.
