     The tournament seeding held up on the first day of the 4A Great Basin Conference softball tournament Saturday at Canyon Ridge in Twin Falls.

     No. 4-seeded Wood River (10-13) won its first-round game by a 9-2 score over the No. 5-seeded Burley Bobcats, then coach Dale Martin’s Wolverines lost 11-2 to top-seeded Canyon Ridge later in the day Saturday.

     Sophomore pitcher Britney Bradley threw a four-hitter at Burley with seven strikeouts and got plenty of hitting help from Lacy Harrington (2 hits) and Chloe Evans (3-run double). Bradley helped her cause with a two-run double.

     Against Canyon Ridge’s college-bound senior pitcher Emma Stephens, Wood River managed three hits and couldn’t score after jumping to a 2-0 lead in the first. Bradley pitched again, yielding nine hits. Harrington had a RBI hit.

     Wood River dropped into the loser bracket of the six-team double elimination tournament and faced Burley again Tuesday, that winner going against No. 3 Jerome. In other first-round games, Jerome whipped Minico 13-1 and then fell 9-7 to No. 2-seeded Twin Falls.

     Canyon Ridge, undefeated in league play, faced off against reigning conference champion Twin Falls on Tuesday for one of two automatic berths from the GBC to the State 4A tournament May 17 in Post Falls.
