“They (La Conner) started coming back in the seventh,” Hickman said. “We got the nerves. But we got over the hump. ... Everyone contributed in this game.”

Pitcher Kylie Clark went the distance for the Lions and picked up the win.

Jaidyn Swanson tripled for Concrete, as did Sadie Peif.

“We hit a lot of doubles,” Hickman said. “But Sadie’s triple, it was legit.”

Concrete is 1-3 in league play and 1-9 overall. The Braves are 0-1 and 3-4.
