Riverhawks top Loggers to stay unbeaten


The Toledo softball team won its third straight game on Friday, as the Riverhawks topped Onalaska 5-1.

Peyton Holter was excellent in the circle for Toledo (3-0, 1-0 C2BL), allowing five hits and one run while walking four and striking out nine in a complete game.

The Riverhawks gave her some run support early, scoring once in the second and three times in the third before adding an insurance run in the seventh.

On the opposite side, Lisa Liddell settled in after allowing four runs in the first three innings. She also went all seven innings, allowing six hits and five runs (three earned) while walking two and striking out six.

It was her first start back after missing the beginning of the season due to an injury, and Onalaska coach Rich Teitzel was “very happy” with her performance.

Teitzel wasn’t as pleased with the amount of baserunning and fielding errors that the Loggers (0-2, 0-1 C2BL), but he did note that those mistakes are fixable.

“We just need to tighten things up, relax a little bit, and play ball like we know how,” Teitzel said.

Both Toledo and Onalaska are in action on Saturday. The Loggers will head to Coupeville for a doubleheader, while the Riverhawks are heading south to Kiwanis Park in Yakima to face Davis and Kittitas.
