HELENA — Sarah Bury went 2-3 with a home run to help lead the Helena Capital softball team to a 6-1 win over Kalispell Flathead, then saw teammate April Davis drive in three runs in the Bruins’ 10-0 five-inning win over Kalispell Glacier.

“Our pitchers, Nicole Ames and Shelby Martin, were very good, giving up only the one run,” said Capital softball coach Mike Miller. “Catcher April Davis is doing a great job behind the plate calling pitches. The defense was great, no errors (Saturday). We had great hitting throughout the lineup, 27 hits in 12 innings of at-bats.”

Bury and Kaedin Rosling each tallied two RBI against Flathead, which took an early 1-0 lead after the opening inning. Capital scored four runs over the next two frames, then added their fifth and sixth runs in the fifth inning.

Ames pitched all seven innings, striking out nine Bravette batters.

Capital’s second game of the afternoon saw the Bruins tack on eight runs in the opening inning. Martin and Davis drove in six of the 10 runs in the contest, while Martin struck out eight in the five-inning affair.

Capital continues its conference schedule on Tuesday at Missoula Hellgate. First pitch in the doubleheader is scheduled for 4 p.m.
