PREP ROUNDUP: Waldon propels EP to sweep

EUGENE — When the Eagle Point softball team needed a big hit in extra innings Wednesday, Hailey Waldon was there to lend a hand.

Waldon’s RBI double off the wall in left field broke an 8-all tie in the top of the eighth and allowed seventh-ranked Eagle Point to claim a 9-8 win and sweep its Midwestern League doubleheader against Churchill after recording a 4-2 win in the opener.

Waldon’s big hit in extra innings capped a big afternoon at the plate where she recorded six hits, including a 4-for-5 outing with a pair of doubles and three RBIs in Game 2.

Waldon was one of five players for Eagle Point (15-7, 9-3 MWL) to have a multi-hit game in the nightcap. Jovianna Marshall finished 3-for-4, while Sydney Boren, Isabel Poague and Jade Lierman all had two hits.

Lierman had a pair of RBIs in Game 2, while Sydney Bruner provided a big two-run single with the bases loaded in the third inning to help the Eagles build an early 5-2 lead.

Eagle Point starting pitcher Kyra Smith picked up the win in both games. In Game 1, Smith tossed a four-hitter, allowing just two runs and striking out six while walking two.

The Eagles tied the opener at 1-all in the top of the second on an RBI single by Sage Teixeira. They took a 3-1 lead three innings later on an RBI double by Waldon and Baylee Mullen’s RBI single.

After the Lancers (7-15, 5-9) cut the Eagles’ lead in half, Bruner gave EP an insurance run when she came in from third on a Churchill error.

Boren finished with three hits — including a triple — and a run scored in Game 1.
