Glacier slugs way to wins in Great Falls

Apr. 17—GREAT FALLS — Zoey Allen hit two homers in the first game and Paishance Haller and Olivia Warriner each hit grand slams in the nightcap as Glacier won two non-conference softball games Tuesday.

Allen's five RBIs fueled the Wolfpack's 11-3 over Great Falls CMR in the opener; Warriner, Haller and Emma Cooke all homered in the second game, a 24-6 win over Great Falls High.

That ended after five innings under the mercy rule.

Glacier, 6-2, next plays host to Flathead in the first of two Crosstown games on Thursday. First pitch is at 5 p.m.
