DAYTON – Due to poor weather conditions, West Side’s home softball game against the Firth Cougars on Thursday was cancelled, as was the Cache Box track meet.
The softball team did, however, travel on Saturday to Arimo to play the Eagles of Marsh Valley.
It was another victory for the Pirates, making their win-loss record two to two.
The Pirates won’t have another game until April 10 when they take on American Falls. West Side’s season started with American Falls, a game which the Pirates lost 17-8 after a bad inning put them in a hole. That game will be held in American Falls.
“The game against the Beavers will push us, but that is what we need,” said Whitnee Smart.
“Our first game against them didn’t’ go so well. We were ahead and then we started making stupid errors that made it difficult for us to stay with them,” said senior Courtney Priestley.
“We were nervous that first game. But we have become way more comfortable with our positions and duties, so I believe that when we face them next week we will be able to take them.”
Then on Saturday, April 12, West Side travels to Glenns Ferry for a double header. After those two games, the Pirates start playing district opponents.
At Marsh Valley the Pirates were up 18-8 in the fifth inning. Both West Side and Marsh Valley wanted a win. Both teams fought back and forth for all seven innings. The game took three hours, but in the end the Pirates won 27-17.
