The College of the Redwoods women have been an exciting team to watch in softball in recent weeks.

For the third straight doubleheader, they secured a walk-off win o Saturday, splitting a conference doubleheader against Feather River at the Bear River Recreational Center.

The visitors took game one 3-1, before the CR women battled back to take game two 3-2, with the bottom of the lineup stepping up late.

Trailing 2-1 going into the final inning of game two, CR’s Allie Egbert hit a two-out base hit to right field to score Brooke Faraimo.

Thanks to a close play at the plate, Egbert made it all the way to third base and would score the winning run moments later on a Kyla Cockerham single.

It was a nice way for the seven CR sophomores to end their final home games.

“It was exciting on sophomore day to end our home games at Bear River with a win,” head coach Megan Valente said. “We are so grateful that we get to play at Bear River at this amazing field.”

Cockerham and Faraimo each finished 2-for-3 in the win, with additional hits by Sadie Hampton and Kyla Pontoni.

Faraimo got the start in the circle and pitched 6.1 strong innings, allowing just one earned run on six hits and five walks, before Egbert came in to close out and get the win.

Feather River scored a pair of first-inning runs in both games, and they made it count in the opener, with the CR bats flat for much of the day.

Faraimo, Egbert, Nas-Che-Wen Hunsucker, Renee Metz and Ashley Ballew each had a hit in the loss.

The CR women are third in the Golden Valley Conference with a record of 8-6 and 18-12 overall.

Feather River solidified second place in the standings with the split and are now 11-3 and 18-11.
