Cubs claim softball title by edging Union

UNION — The Cubs were able to wrap up a Special District 6 regular season softball championship with a sweep of Union/Cove Saturday. 

Enterprise/Joseph stole the first game 5-4 before cruising to a 15-5 win in Game 2.

In Game 1, the Cubs got on the board with a run in the third before going for four in the sixth. Union/Cove rallied with two runs in the bottom of the sixth and two more in the seventh, but stranded runners at second and third with two outs in the seventh.

“It was a good game,” Union/Cove coach Paul Phillips said. “We just didn’t get to (pitcher) Edison until the sixth. We had momentum in the seventh but it didn’t happen for us.”

Katie Edison got the win, going seven innings and striking out nine while allowing six hits. Dani Sturm took the loss, pitching four innings. The Cubs finished with 10 hits total.

Union/Cove needed a sweep to win the league title, so in Game 2 the Lady Cats were playing for pride.

Enterprise/Joseph led 7-4 after two innings before opening it up for eight runs over the final four innings to get the win. Sydney Cooney got the win for the Cubs.

“Our heart just wasn’t in it that second game, and we had a let down,” Phillips said.

The Lady Cats will play host to Wallowa Wednesday at 3 p.m. in the Special District 6 playoffs.

Union/Cove swept the Cougars Friday, taking the first game 13-4 before easily winning the second game, 24-2. Sturm struck out 12 in the first game to get the win.
