A thrilling game to watch if you’re an Eagles fan, Wednesday evening’s matchup between Hood River Valley High School and the Bend Lava Bears appeared as though it was going to be a fierce battle in the do-or-die first round of the OSAA 5A state softball playoffs. Bend struck early in the game — moved from Hood River to The Dalles to avoid wet weather — with two runs in the opening inning to set the tone. The determined HRV girls answered back, however, with a relentless offensive performance that tallied nine hits and eight runs and a fortress of a defense that kept the Bears scoreless the rest of the game.
