Eagle and Boise Fight for Softball Supremacy
Eagle High has been the talk of high school softball not only in Idaho but across the country. Last year Eagle finished the season ranked #1 in the country, a first for any Idaho prep sports team.
In 2017 Eagle is still great but they have a challenger and that challenge comes from their own 5A SIC in the Boise Braves.
Combined the two teams are 23-3 in conference play 33-7 overall. Boise tops the SIC standings at 12-1 with Eagle #2 at 11-2.
Tuesday night however it was Eagle coming out on top as Kelly Kukla stroked a 2 run 5th inning homer to power the Mustangs past Boise 2-1. It was the Braves first conference loss.
Autumn Moffat tossed a 2-hitter, striking out 10 to get the win. Both teams will be back in action Friday as Eagle hosts Borah at 5 p.m. while Boise will entertain Columbia also at 5 p.m.
