GREAT FALLS — Great Falls got out to a great start in Game 1 but was forced to hold on as Belgrade made a seventh inning rally in a softball doubleheader between the teams Friday.
The Bison took an 8-4 lead by the end of the third inning. Keying their advantage were two home runs from Dani Senger and another by Ella Galloway.
Going into the final inning, the Bison held a 13-4 lead but the game was far from over. The Panthers rallied for 11 runs in the top of the seventh to take a 15-13 lead. However, the Panthers' comeback efforts were put to rest as Dyna Timboe delivered a walk-off, RBI single to secure a 16-15 win for the Bison.
The second game was no easier but the Bison prevailed again, winning 9-8 to complete the sweep. Belgrade nearly erased a six-run deficit but the comeback fell short for the second time in two games.
