At Feist Field in Tautphaus Park, the Idaho Falls High School softball team scored four runs in the bottom of the sixth inning en route to an 11-4 conference win over Blackfoot.

A day after committing three errors in a 2-1 loss at Blackfoot, the Tigers had zero errors to Blackfoot’s eight. The win gave the Tigers a regular season split with the Broncos, with whom they now share first place in 4A District 6.

“We were neck and neck in hits,” Idaho Falls coach Traci Wilkinson said. “The errors cost both games. Our defense was pretty solid today. It made a big difference.”

Madi Burton went 3 for 4 with a double and two RBIs, Macie Cordon went 3 for 4 with a double and Kaitlin Moss went 3 for 4 with two RBIs for Idaho Falls (15-3, 5-1 4A District 6), which plays Tuesday at Shelley.

Chloe Cronquist went 2 for 4 with a double while Kyah Henderson, Grace Callister and Demry Wixon each went 2 for 4 for Blackfoot (9-2, 5-1 4A District 6), which plays Wednesday at Hillcrest.
