With the weather finally cooperating, the Canyon View Falcons were able to open Region 9 play with two road games last week.
Thanks to big early starts, the team came away with two big wins in its region homecoming.
CV opened the week with nine runs in the first two innings before polishing off an 11-6 win at Pine View on March 27, then had a trio of four-run innings as part of a 14-1 victory in five innings at Dixie that gave them a 2-0 region record.
Against the Panthers, the Falcons started with three runs in the first and added six more in the second. Malia Vasi hit a two-run double that highlighted the first-inning rally and Camry Higgins hit a three-run homer in the second.
Ashlyn Wheelwright capped the victory with a two-run double in the sixth.
Canyon View followed up with four runs in the first inning at Dixie on March 29, then added four in the second and fourth as they put the game away early due to the mercy rule. Jordan Nielson earned her second win of the week for the Falcons and drove in four runs at the plate.
