  • CENTRAL POINT — The Crater softball team led early on in both of its Southern Oregon Hybrid games with Roseburg, but a combined 14 errors proved costly and allowed the Indians to sweep the doubleheader at Crater High on Friday.
    Roseburg won the opener, 10-3, before picking up a 9-6 triumph in Game 2.
    In the second game, Crater's Simone Smurzynski blasted a two-run home run and finished 3-for-4 and Brittany Berryhill hit a three-run double.
    Smurzynski's shot to left-center field came on an 0-1 pitch with two outs in the bottom of the first inning, when the Comets (3-11, 0-4 SOH) took a 3-1 lead. Olivia Ryerson added an RBI single.
    Roseburg's Mariessa Robles pounded a three-run homer in the fourth.
    Berryhill cut into the Indians' lead with her bases-clearing hit in the fifth, but six errors proved to be the Comets' undoing.
    In the opener, Crater took a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the third on an Alex Craft RBI double, a Roseburg throwing error that plated Courtney Martin and a Smurzynski RBI single.
    Disaster struck in the fifth, though, when Crater committed four of its eight errors and allowed five walks to help Roseburg (10-6, 3-2) score nine runs.
    Craft finished 2-for-2.
