After delays throughout the week due to poor weather and field conditions, the Lady Vikings softball team hosted a doubleheader with Marshfield on Saturday that provided the Pirates with a two-game sweep.

It was the third match-up with the Pirates that week, with Siuslaw defeating Marshfield in the Far West League opener the previous day.

But on Saturday, the Vikings had trouble generating offense against Pirates pitcher Mackenzie Johnson, who threw a 1-hitter in game two before ending things in the fifth inning, 15-1.

Abby Coday provided Siuslaw’s only hit in the game, smacking a double to drive in the Lady Viks’ only run.

In the opener, however, Siuslaw pitcher Heidi Jones struck out 8 batters and, from the plate, went 2-for-3, scoring the team’s only 2 runs.

Marshfield rallied to tie the game at 2-2 in the top of the fourth inning, then generated 2 more runs in the top of the sixth to hold out for a 4-2 win.

The win puts Marshfield at 2-1, with the Viks at 1-2 in league.

Siuslaw will host Douglas (2-0) Friday for a doubleheader, beginning at 3 p.m.
