The Homer softball team came away with two Northern Lights Conference victories and one nonconference loss after a tough weekend of travel to Kodiak.

The Mariners were originally supposed to travel to Kodiak for doubleheaders Friday and Saturday, but rough weather forced a flight cancellation, making Homer take the ferry to Kodiak on Saturday morning instead.

Homer notched a 10-0 conference victory Saturday night before winning a conference game 16-8 Sunday, then losing the nonconference affair 22-2. Homer is now 5-7 overall and 3-0 in the league.

In Sunday’s first game, Becca Chapman got the start for Homer but did not record an out in giving up two runs, one earned. Annalyn Brown came on and pitched the final six innings, giving up eight hits and six runs — five earned — while striking out eight and walking one.

Kodiak, the visitors on the scoreboard, had a 6-5 lead going into the bottom of the fifth inning before Homer scored six in the fifth and five in the sixth to take control of the game.

For Homer, Brown had three runs and two RBIs, Grace Godfrey was 2 for 2 with two runs and two RBIs, Briana Hetrick had three RBIs, Aspen Walli had two hits, Haylee Owen had three runs, Kaitlyn Johnson had two runs and Sadie Blake had two runs.

In the second game, Chapman and Hetrick could not silence the Bears bats. Chapman yielded 15 earned runs in two-thirds of an inning, while Hetrick gave up seven runs in 2 1-3 innings.

Homer had just two hits in the game.
