Incline is scheduled to play a league series at West Wendover this Friday and Saturday.

The Incline softball team dropped a pair of league games against visiting Yerington last Wednesday, 18-0 and 18-3.

While the Highlanders were held hitless in the first game of the doubleheader, they showed improvement in the second contest with four hits.

Junior catcher and pitcher Karyss Thompson went 2-for-2 with a triple and RBI, while senior Briana Barraza and junior Alyssa Flynn both went 1-for-2 with an RBI.

Thompson started in the circle and pitched all five innings, picking up two strikeouts.

Playing catch-up after Yerington opened with an eight-run first inning, Incline broke through for two runs in the fourth and another in the fifth.

Barraza started the first game and had one strikeout in four innings. The Lions struck early in that game as well, setting the tone with an 11-run first inning.
