DIVISION IV SOFTBALL: Harris’ walk-off hit sends Pahranagat Valley to title game

Madison Harris’ one-out single in the bottom of the seventh inning Friday plated Kennedy Huntsman with the winning run to lift Pahranagat Valley to a 6-5 victory over Eureka in the winners’ bracket final of the Division IV state softball tournament at Bishop Manogue High School in Reno.

Huntsman opened the seventh with a single and moved to second on Jamie Hansen’s groundball. She took third on a wild pitch before scoring on Harris’ single.

Harris finished 2-for-4 with three RBIs, and Huntsman was 2-for-4 with a double for Pahranagat Valley (24-4), which will meet Eureka (26-2) again at 10 a.m. Saturday at Manogue. The Vandals won their way back to the final, but must beat the Panthers twice Saturday to win the title. Pahranagat Valley needs only one victory on Saturday.

Taylor Usry was 2-for-4 with a double for the Vandals, who led 5-3 after five innings.

Wells 8, Indian Springs 0 — The Leopards eliminated the Thunderbirds (9-11) from the tournament with a shutout victory in a losers’ bracket game.
