— Colville topped Omak by identical 9-4 scores in a non-league softball doubleheader at Colville on Saturday.

“Overall, we are still happy with where we are at,” said Omak coach Rick Duck. “We played five games against three good teams this last week and competed well in all 5. Once we get the little things right we will see some W’s in these games.”

After two scoreless innings of the opener, each team scored three times in the third inning.

Colville broke open the game with five runs in the fourth.

“We got a few hits against a good Colville pitcher (Gracie Schaulf, 11Ks) in this one,” coach Duck said. “Just couldn’t string enough hits together. We left 10 runners on base.”

Jamie Utt drove in all four of Omak’s runs, including a 3-run homer in the third.

“Our defense (6 errors) was sloppy in this one,” coach Duck said. “Rhaney Harris pitched well enough to win, but we didn’t have the run support.”

Harris struck out 3, walked one and gave up 6 earned runs on 8 hits.

Colville committed one error.

Omak (4) – Priest 1-4, K. Duck 1-4, 3B; Boyd 1-4, 2B; Harris 1-2, 2BB; Utt 3-4, 4RBI, 3R, HR.

In the second game, Omak committed 5 errors while outhitting Colville 9-7.

“Again in this one, our defense had some soft spots,” coach Duck said. “I was happy with the top of our order, (which) is starting to hit. Priest, Duck and Boyd hit the ball well. Boyd had a hard hit line drive in the sixth with the bases loaded that was caught for out 3. Colville had a 5-run third, which made the difference.”

Omak (4) – Priest 2-2, 2R, 2BB; Duck 1-4; Boyd 2-4, RBI, 2B; Keaton 1-3; Utt 2-4, 2B; Ables 2-3.

Kara Keaton pitched four innings, giving up 6 earned runs on 7 hits.

Utt closed, giving up one hit and one earned run in two innings.
