Riley Bunnell led Colville batters with two hits, an RBI, and two runs scored. Grant Micheliszyn added a double for Colville (8-0, 4-0) in the win over the Cardinals (1-7, 1-2).

Curlew breezes by Hunters
Hunters finally got to hit the field on the 2019 season when they took on the Curlew Cougars on the road Tuesday for a pair of games, ultimately falling in both 14-2 and 11-1.
In the first game Curlew took command of the game in the second inning after a scoreless first with a four run inning. They followed that up with another four in the third and six more in the fourth to take a commanding lead in the game.
Hunters batters had a pair of doubles in the game from Cook and Christen.
The second game saw Curlew (2-4, 2-2) jump out to a fast 7-0 lead after the first inning, and Cougars starting pitcher Gunnar Hilderbrandt held the Lions to just one run on four hits to lead the team to an easy 11-1 victory.
Three of the four hits in the game for Hunters went for extra bases, as Zehetmir had a double and teammates Cook and Moss added triples.
Hunters (0-2) will next host Selkirk April 13 for a doubleheader starting at 12 p.m.
Springdale toppled in doubleheader
Springdale took to the road for a Tuesday doubleheader with Lind-Ritzville-Sprague, being sent home with a couple more in the loss column after falling 8-1 and 11-1.
The Broncos put five on the board in the first three innings of game one to take a 5-0 lead before the Chargers got one home in the fourth. However, that was all Springdale could muster on offense, getting just three hits total off of Broncos pitching.
Avery Kitt got the start on the mound for Springdale, picking up the loss.
Game two saw the Chargers get on the scoreboard first with a run in the top of the first inning. Unfortunately, that was the last lead they’d have on the day as the Broncos responded with three runs of their own in the bottom of the same inning en route to the ten-run win.
Springdale (0-4) batters were held to just the one hit in the game by the Broncos combined pitching efforts.
The Chargers travel to Northport for a set with the Mustangs April 13 beginning at 2 p.m.
