KOOSKIA — Clearwater Valley of Kooskia bounced back from a five-run deficit against Potlatch to prevail in Whitepine League action.
Connor Jackson had two hits with a double for the Rams (1-2, 1-1), and Luke Olsen and Anthony Fabbi had doubles of their own.
“He’s batting about .700,” coach Josh Bradley said of Jackson.
Both teams were scoreless through the first two innings before the Loggers completed five runs in the third. Clearwater Valley came back with five runs of its own in the fourth, then five more in the sixth to take the lead.
“In the fourth inning, we got the bats going a bit,” Bradley said. “Made them make some mistakes. Started putting the ball in play and hitting it.”

Lewiston 13, Moscow 0
Samantha Mader had a fourth-inning grand slam and struck out nine in the circle as the Bengals run-ruled the Bears in Inland Empire League play at the Moscow Community Playfields.
Lewiston (10-1, 5-0) got contributions up and down the lineup, something coach Kristin Delp said has been key to the start of the season.
“We just wanted to start with momentum and play at a high level consistently throughout the entire game, and we did that,” Delp said.
Mader allowed just one hit and five walks in the complete-game performance.
Karli Taylor had three hits, including a double, and three RBI. Taryn Barney doubled twice among her three hits, with three RBI. Loryn Barney had two hits, including a triple, and three RBI. Mader finished with three hits.
“Throughtout out lineup, everybody has been producing,” Delp said. “Today, it was more of a line-drive party.”
Addie Branen had the only hit for Moscow (1-4, 0-3)
