Falcons sweep Bulldogs

BILLINGS — Billings Skyview pounded 30 hits in two games Saturday as the Falcons swept Butte High in an Eastern AA softball doubleheader.

Skyview won the opener 8-5 before completing the sweep with a 21-5 win in Game 2 on the cold, windy afternoon. The second game was stopped after six innings by the 10-run rule.

The doubleheader is the only time the Bulldogs will face the Falcons in the regular season this year.

“We’ll regroup and they’ll be alright,” Butte High coach Ryan Stosich said of his young Bulldogs. “Hopefully they’ll keep learning”

Bulldog pitcher Kaidy McClafferty pitched both games against the powerful Falcon lineup. Stosich said it will serve as a learning experience for his ace heading into Thursday’s conference doubleheader at home against Great Falls High.

“Kaidy just kind of ran out of gas,” Stosich said. “She was up there in the pitch count. But it will help her against Great Falls High. She’ll have to do it again Thursday.”

First, Butte High will play at Bozeman on Tuesday afternoon.

Jenna Walker hit a double and a single and drove in three runs to lead the Bulldogs. Kennedi Ferriter and Jenna Maroney each hit two singles, while Brianna Ossello, Taylor Huff and Isabelle Bonney added one.
