Pahranagat Valley catcher Jordan Cryts makes a diving catch of a foul ball in the game with Lake Mead on Tuesday. The Panthers won 19-3, and travel to co-league leader Tonopah this Friday.

Ike Taylor had three hits and two RBIs to lead the Panthers over the Bulldogs 12-5 in a non-league game at Mesquite last Friday.

Wade Leavitt added three hits, and Jake Carter and Shawn Wadsworth each drove in two runs for Pahranagat Valley, which led 12-1 before allowing four runs in the bottom of the sixth. Since 2008, PVHS and Virgin Valley have split their four meetings.

Lake Mead (3-12) was in Alamo for a non-league game April 29 and the Panthers clawed the Eagles 16-0 in the first two innings and coasted to a 19-3 win. Paden Higbee, Wade Leavitt and Christian Higbee limited Lake Mead to only two hits, with Higbee tallying five strikeouts.

Pahranagat (15-3, 8-0) has their biggest test of the season this Friday, playing at co-league leading Tonopah (20-2-1, 8-0).

Tonopah has won 16 of their last 18 games, but Alamo coach Brad Loveday said he has no scouting reports on the team at all, except junior pitcher Conner Friel is expected to be very strong on the mound in one of the games, as is Tabor Maxwell for the Panthers.

Alamo ends the regular season with three home games, a non-league meeting with Lincoln County May 6, and the final league double-header with Sandy Valley May 9.

The Division IV regional tournament will be May 15-17 in Alamo and the state tournament to follow May 22-24 in Reno.
