The Douglas softball team got past North Valleys 3-2 Thursday afternoon in Minden.

Douglas’ Leonna Mortimer hit a solo home run in the second inning but North Valleys answered with two in the top of the third.

Douglas’ Kelly Sonnemann rounded the bases to tie the game after North Valleys’ center fielder dove and missed a line drive into center with two outs in the bottom of the sixth.

Shaena Robinson ran for Kaitlyn Bowman, who’d drawn a two-out walk, and Makayla Shaver belted a triple to drive Robinson in for the game-winning run.

Bowman struck out two and walked two, scattering six hits in the win.

Illiana Brown and Katie Chieffo both singled for the Tigers.
