In Saturday's home game, the Lady Eagles fell 18-2 to visiting Miyamura High School.

A nine-run first inning for the Lady Patriots put a lot of pressure on Belen, which was unable to score in the bottom of the first.

Miyamura stacked on five more runs in the second, with the Lady Eagles adding their only two runs of the game in the bottom of the second.

Belen's Emma Gonzales pitched the four and a half inning mercy rule loss. Lady Eagle Alexis Maese went 2-3 in the contest with a run, a double and an RBI.

On Tuesday, the Lady Eagles traveled north to Los Lunas High School to meet with District 6-4A powerhouse Los Lunas.

The Lady Eagles lost the county rivalry match, 17-0, giving Belen a 8-10 overall record, and putting them 1-4 in District 6-4A play.
