WASHINGTON TERRACE -- It was not a one-run game the second go-round.
In their second of three league games this year, the Bees battered Bonneville 9-3 on Tuesday at CD Field.
Defending Region 5 champion Box Elder improved to 8-0, while also remaining undefeated at 13-0 overall -- joining Snow Canyon as the state's only two unbeaten softball teams.
In the first Bonneville-Box Elder game on March 19 in Brigham City, the Bees won 2-1 in 10 innings on a Lakers' infield error with one out.
Despite four errors Tuesday, Box Elder right-handers Baylee Reeves -- who has signed with BYU-Hawaii -- and Abbey Martin combined on a five-hitter with five strikeouts and no walks.
"I was nervous about this game," said Bees coach Mandy Hodgson. "Bonneville has one of the better pitchers in the region in (Andy) Hancock. I think coming off the Mountain Crest game (a 2-0 road win on Thursday), we've really focused on our hitting."
Sadie Blacker went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, a solo home run, three RBIs and scored two runs.
Molly Horne was 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI and two runs; Martin went 2-for-4 with a double, three RBIs and a run; and Karly Bunderson drilled an RBI double for Box Elder.
"This is the best we have hit the ball this year against a quality pitcher," Hodgson said. "We were able to get our bunts down today. We make sure we get the ball on the ground and advance (base) runners.
"I pulled Baylee when we went up 9-0 (after five innings)," she said. "I needed to give Abbey some work."
Cortney Porter went 2-for-4 with two doubles and scored a run. Hancock, who allowed 10 hits with six strikeouts, four walks and a hit batter in taking the loss, drilled a two-run double for the Lakers (6-6, 4-3).
"I think we're starting to hit our stride in this game," Hodgson said. "I also think the girls are playing to their potential all the time. We were making some adjustments at second base for an injured Myranda Hernandez, who twisted her ankle running the bases Monday in practice."
