The Lady Falcons softball team ended the season away from home after it faced its toughest opponent yet in Bear River May 17, in a game that proved to be too much for the Lady Falcons as they fell 4-0.

However, one has to give the Lady Falcons a lot of credit getting to that position at all. The young team was starting the season looking to gain experience and start to build for next season with some of its younger players. It got everything it wanted and then some.

The Falcons ended the season dead even with the Lady Reds and both would hoist the Region 9 title high in the air and get ready for the playoffs. The Falcons ended the season with more than enough momentum to push them in the playoffs. They beat all Region 9 opponents except for Cedar in its last six games; the six-game winning streak to end the season also included a 10-1 win against Manti.

The Lady Falcons kept things interesting in their first playoff game against Uintah on May 12 when the Falcons played away from home. Coming back from five runs down and scoring six unanswered runs, the Lady Falcons beat Uintah by one run and prepared for the defending state champions from Bear River.

The game started off smoothly for the Falcons defensively, a good thing considering their trouble getting on the board throughout the game. Both teams went scoreless through the first two innings before Bear River’s offense decided enough was enough.

Bear River would only need the third and fourth innings to seal the deal on the Falcons, scoring one run in the third and three more in the fourth. The rest of the game would go scoreless and the Lady Falcons couldn’t find an answer for Bear River pitcher Jordan Theurer and lost the game 4-0.

The Falcons would win later that day facing Juab and forcing the ten run rule on them, winning the game 19-9. The final game of the day for the Falcons would be a loss to Wasatch 2-1 to send Canyon View back to Cedar.
