Boyd drills walk-off homer

Omak stuck with pitcher Rhaney Harris and used a three-run, walk-off home run by Nashoni Boyd for a 6-5 non-league softball victory Saturday over Nooksack Valley.

“This was a well-played game by both teams,” Omak coach Rick Duck said. “Nooksack is a good team and they took advantage of the free bases we gave them to manufacture some runs.”

The westside Pioneers led 3-0 in the top of the third before Omak got its first run in the bottom of the inning.

Omak trailed, 5-3, when Boyd drilled her winning home run.

Omak finished with 12 hits and 2 errors compared to 2 hits and no errors by Nooksack Valley.

Harris finished with 8 walks, 2 hits and 5 runs in seven innings.

“Harris struggled early, but was able to re-group and get the job done,” Duck said.
