Oregon Tech Softball Hosts Doubleheader
The Oregon Tech Owls softball team will play in the Basin again Friday, hosting Concordia. The game was scheduled at the OIT softball complex, but field conditions aren’t good enough, so the teams will play at Henley High School for a second straight OIT doubleheader.
Concordia is off a split against Northwest Christian earlier this week, beating the Beacons 12-6 in game one before falling 6-1 in the finale. Concordia scored six runs in the second inning, as the Cavaliers ended with seven of the nine batters getting multiple hits.
No. 6 Oregon Tech defeated College of Idaho in both games Monday. The Owls belted six home runs in the doubleheader, none of which came from Jess Plummer who is second in the Cascade Conference in homers.
The doubleheader begins at 2 p.m.
