Redmond high school didn’t stand a chance in either game of Saturday’s double-header against the Hood River Valley Eagles. With two more “W’s” notched for the Eagles and two more games ended in the fifth by the ten-run mercy rule, the girls officially clamed the Intermountain Conference title with the 14-0 and 14-2 victories on the Panthers’ turf.
In both games, the Eagles were relentless on offense. In game one, they nailed in seven runs in the first inning alone, leaving the Panthers little light at the end of the tunnel.
And that light flickered out completely in the first inning of the second game, when Hood River clobbered ten runs home before Redmond could end the rally. Adding insult to injury, Meghan Flem and Stefanie Draper had homers in the inning.
From the circle, Draper pitched a one-hitter in the first game with six strike-outs. In game two Chelsey Elliott took over the mound, giving up two hits and sending nine Panthers off the batters box with three strikes.
The Eagles have two more regular-season games remaining. They travel to Hermiston on Friday and to The Dalles next Monday to give the number-four and number-two teams in the IMC a second go-around with the conference champions.
