NEWPORT -- Brooke Long finished a home run shy of the cycle, and Myah King shut down Newport's offense to give Line Mountain a 9-2 Tri-Valley League victory Saturday.

Long finished 3-for-5 at the plate with two RBIs, joining Joelle Snyder and Kiana Lukoskie as Eagles (7-3, 6-2 TVL) hitters to finish 3-for-5. Snyder ripped two triples, and Lukoskie raced for one. Line Mountain scored multiple runs in each of the first three innings.

King did not allow a run after the second inning, striking out five.

Abi Albright led Newport (2-9, 1-7) with three hits.

Warrior Run 6,

MONTGOMERY -- Warrior Run scored all six of its runs in the first two innings and held off Montgomery for the non-league win.

COCOLAMUS -- Makenna Yetter knocked in three runs and scored four times to lead East Juniata to the non-league win.
