The Lady Warriors edged 2A powerhouse Enterprise 4-3 Friday afternoon to complete a perfect 20-0 season. But it wasn’t easy.

Brytni Gurney pitched her 20th win of the season and knocked home a pair of runs to help Snow Canyon hold on for the win. Enterprise trailed 4-1 going into the seventh, but got a pair of runs and had the tying run on base before Gurney closed the door on the win.

It was a well-pitched game as Gurney dueled with the Lady Wolves Dakota Robinson. Enterprise, 18-4, got a two-run homer from Jaycee Reber in that seventh inning.

Snow Canyon had clinched region two weeks ago, but now can finally focus on the state playoffs. The Lady Warriors play host to Payson, Uintah and Tooele next Saturday in one playoff pod. Payson and Uintah will play at 10 a.m. with Snow Canyon and Tooele meeting at noon.

Canyon View 7, Dixie 1

Kenzii Redd and Josie Platt each had two hits as the Lady Falcons secured second place in region. Savanah Eckhardt pitched the gem and will be instrumental as CV gears up for the state playoffs.

Canyon View, 16-9 overall and 9-3 in region, will play in the Spanish Fork pod. The Lady Falcons will battle Grantsville next Saturday at 10 a.m. in Spanish Fork. The Lady Dons will play Union at noon.

Dixie, 11-10 and 4-8, will miss out on the playoffs.

Pine View 15, Cedar 6

The Lady Panthers, 18-5 and 8-4, got the big win and will be headed to the playoffs as the third seed from Region 9. They will play in the Juan Diego pod and will face Bear River next Saturday at noon. Juan Diego plays Carbon in the other pod game.

Cedar, 9-11 and 4-8, is eliminated from playoff contention with the loss.

Hurricane 2, Desert Hills 0

The Lady Tigers won their way into the playoffs with the shutout victory. Hurricane, 7-8 and 5-7, got a stellar outing from Paisley Pearson and a pair of doubles from Cierra Stratton and KC Gubler.

Hurricane will play in the playoffs with the exact time and location to be determined.

Desert Hills, 1-17 and 0-12, will miss the playoffs.
