ISLAND CITY —The La Grande softball team split a pair of Greater Oregon League games with McLoughlin Thursday.

The Tigers won the opener 2-0 and lost the nightcap 11-1 in six innings.

"I was very proud of the way our girls played the first game," La Grande coach Majalise Tolan said.

"We came out and played to win —unfortunately we played not to lose the second game, lost our aggressiveness, played on our heels and consequently lost. We look forward to ending our season on a winning note Saturday."

The Tigers fell to 6-12, while the Pioneers improved to 10-8.

Next up for the Tigers is their regular-season finale at home against Ontario at 1 p.m. Saturday.
