Split with Phoenix gives Mazama title

Prep Softball Roundup

KLAMATH FALLS ' Mazama put a damper on Phoenix's playoff hopes and, in the process, the Vikings locked up a Skyline Conference softball title.

Mazama scored seven runs in the fourth inning to rally from a 2-1 deficit and defeat Phoenix 8-2 in the opener. The Pirates bounced back with a 3-1 win in Game 2.

Danielle Stratton doubled and homered in the opener for Mazama (15-2 Skyline) and the Vikings took advantage of four Phoenix errors.

We just couldn't string anything together, said Phoenix coach Brent Watts. (Mazama pitcher Ali Edwards) only had five strikeouts. They just played better defense than us.

Phoenix is 10-7 in conference and one game behind North Valley for the third and final state playoff berth.

The Pirates must defeat Henley on Tuesday and hope Hidden Valley beats North Valley to force a tie for third.

— Phoenix's Tawnya Tidwell went 3-for-4, while Rebecca Singleton had two hits and two stolen bases.

In the nightcap, Taylor Barrett gave up one run and four hits to notch the win.

Talia Engle drove home two runs in the eighth inning to give Phoenix the lead for good.
