OGDEN -- The last time Ogden and Grantsville faced each other, the Tigers went limping home with a 10-run loss.
The Tigers looked like a different team on Monday, jumping out to an early lead and never looking back, holding off the Bulldogs for a 10-8 victory in Region 11 softball action.
"We had to reinforce some team discipline a while back and it's starting to pay off," said Ogden coach Skylee Cypers. "Motivation wasn't a problem after we lost to them last time and we know we have the talent to stick it to 'em."
Six different players picked up RBIs for Ogden (9-7, 4-5 Region 11), including two apiece from sophomore Adelena Duran and freshman Gina Barnes.
The Tigers piled up 11 hits -- scoring four runs in the first inning and three in the fifth -- and took advantage of three Grantsville errors, which proved to be the difference.
Tigers' starting pitcher Chezarae Garcia shook off a three-run first inning and tossed a complete game, striking out six Cowboys in the process.
Trailing 10-6 in the top of the sixth inning, Grantsville (11-6, 6-3) rallied to within two runs with a triple and a double, but the Ogden defense stifled the Bulldogs for the remainder of the game, highlighted by Duran's diving catch on a line drive in the bottom of the seventh.
Ogden drew to with a game and a half of Stansbury, and two games of Grantsville for the final Region 11 state playoff berth.
Ogden hosts Stansbury on Wednesday, and league-leading Bear River on Friday.
