Diamond Sports: Henley, Mazama tangle in Friday games

baseball softball

 

Things are tight atop the Skyline Conference softball standings, as the Henley Hornets and Mazama Vikings are nearly identical twins this season, including only having one league loss.

The main difference though? Mazama’s 6-5 extra innings victory in the first meeting between the two earlier this month. Henley looks to get one or two wins back on the Vikings when the two meet this afternoon in a doubleheader at Henley.

Phoenix, which beat Mazama, is one loss behind the Klamath Falls schools and plays Hidden Valley this weekend.

The Hidden Valley baseball team shell shocked Henley earlier this week, beating the Hornets 11-1 and tying things up in the league standings. Henley head coach Tim Cleland says finishing with only a loss or two in conference this season was unrealistic.

Henley hosts Mazama in a doubleheader this afternoon.

The Klamath Union Pelicans and North Valley Knights play a crucial doubleheader on Saturday (Noon – 960 the Sports Legend). Trailing the Skyline Conference leaders by a game, a sweep would be highly beneficial. North Valley won the first meeting 9-6, but then lost three straight. KU is 1-4 in its last five games.
