At Filer, Sugar-Salem’s softball team dropped a pair of games to Filer in a doubleheader, 16-6 and 13-2.

In Game 1, the Diggers fell behind early, and they couldn’t make a comeback. Filer captured a 4-0 lead after two innings and made it 8-3 after three. Sugar-Salem did show some fight, putting up six runs across the final three innings, but it wasn’t enough.

In Game 2, Filer won on a walk-off, a single that sealed the deal. In that contest, the Diggers plated four in the first frame, and thanks to three-hit games from three different players, their offense hummed along.

Sugar-Salem (5-8-1) will host American Falls on Thursday afternoon.
