Knights, Chieftains settle for Skyline splitMERLIN ' North Valley and Rogue River were fit to be tied entering Wednesday's Skyline Conference softball doubleheader.

Not much was settled after the twin bill, however, as Rogue River took the opener 2-0 and North Valley bounced back with a 9-5 victory in Game 2.

Both teams are tied for second in conference at 6-2.

Rogue River pitcher Karly Lusk gave up five hits in the shutout victory in Game 1.

We had our opportunities in the first game, said North Valley coach Jeff Conard. Karly did a good job spreading out our hits. Most of them came with two outs.

North Valley (10-5 overall) scored five runs in the fifth inning and pounded out 13 hits in the nightcap to secure the split.

— Nancy Carl went 4-for-4 with three runs to lead the Knights in the second game, while Rachel Conard was 3-for-3 with two RBIs and two runs and Sarah Ruatta went 3-for-4 with two runs and two steals. Kristen Allison had two hits in the opener for North Valley.

We came out and hit the ball where they weren't in the second game, said Jeff Conard. That was the difference.

Jordon Reyes and Lusk each went 2-for-3 in Game 2 for Rogue River (8-4 overall).
