EAGLE POINT — The Roseburg softball team took care of business on the road Saturday, sweeping Eagle Point 11-1 and 10-0 in a Southern Oregon Conference regional doubleheader.

The second game was stopped after five innings due to the 10-run rule.

Stephanie Blix tossed a four-hitter with seven strikeouts, one walk and one hit batter for the Indians (6-3) in the opener. Shyla Mead was 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles, and Kami Gibson and Emma Murphy both went 3-for-5.

In Game 2, Haleigh Wambolt hit a three-run homer in the fifth inning for the Tribe. Gibson, Mead and Olivia Dedmon each had two hits. Gibson hurled a one-hitter, fanning 10 and walking none.

"It was a solid performance all the way around," Roseburg coach Dave Blevins said.

The Indians are scheduled to travel to Central Point on Tuesday to face Crater.
