White Pine in fielder readies to make the play. The Lady Bobcats host Battle Mountain in important league action this weekend, a doubleheader Friday and a single game Saturday.

Unlike the baseball team, the White Pine High softball team did get both of its games at Silver Stage in last Friday, but the Saturday game was rained out, and they too, went back on Tuesday this week, but no score was given on that game.

The girls split the Friday games with the Nighthawks. Losing the first one, 5-4, but taking the nightcap 15-8.

In the first game, Silver Stage took a 3-0 lead right at the start, but the Ladycats came back and only trailed 5-3 in the top of the top of the seventh inning. They scored one run, but were unable to put across the tying run.

The girls had five hits in the game.

The second game was a White Pine victory, but no stats were available.

On March 31, White Pine had played a non-league double header with Tonopah, winning both 14-11 and 11-7.

This week, the Ladycats play host to Battle Mountain, two games on Friday, one on Saturday.

White Pine (6-8-1) is second to unbeaten Pershing County (12-0, 9-0)  in the 2A North.

Battle Mountain currently sits in fourth place (8-5, 6-3).

The games between White Pine and Pershing County were snowed out over the St. Patrick’s Day weekend, and have been rescheduled for May 4-5 in Lovelock.

At the completion of league play, the 2A Northern regional will be played May 11-12. The NIAA has not yet announced the tournament location.
