Billings West split a pair of conference games and won two of three overall against CMR and Great Falls High on Saturday at Poly Vista.

The Bears beat Great Falls 16-6 for an Eastern AA victory, and lost 14-1 to CMR to take a conference loss. They finished the day with a 6-5 non-conference triumph over CMR in nine innings.

Ashley Davis and Maranda Ratcliff each homered for West in the opener against Great Falls. Ratcliff had four RBIs. Pitcher Jalen Creech gave up six first-inning runs but blanked the Bison from then on.

Creech struck out seven of the first nine hitters she faced in the second game, but CMR scored its 14 runs in the final three innings. Lexi Mayhood produced West’s only run, a solo homer.

The Bears won the final game in the ninth on a sacrifice fly by Davis, which scored Lexi Mayhood.
