The second day of the spring sports season was a difficult one for local high school teams, as all teams in action wound up in the loss column.

In softball, Oneida's Lady Indians traveled to Harriman and fell 9-1 to the Blue Devils. Harriman used a 5-run second inning to propel itself to the win.

Oneida's run came on a Jasmine Jones home run in the fifth inning. Jones, a senior, hit a two-out solo shot over the left field fence to score.

Scott High's Lady Highlanders, meanwhile, came up short in a double-header at Cumberland Gap.

In the nightcap, Cumberland Gap scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth to come from behind and defeat Scott, 12-11. The Lady Highlanders had an 11-9 lead going into the bottom half of the final inning.

Montana Wright scored three runs for the Lady Highlanders in that second game, while Mariah Hall added two runs. Alex Kazee, Darsey King, Tamera Dowden, Whitney Byrge, Megan Yancey and Cheyenne Alford all scored as well.

In the first game, which Cumberland Gap won 15-5, Hall scored a pair of runs, while Kazee, King and Anna Sexton each added a run as well.

In that first game, the Lady Highlanders rallied for four runs in the top of the fifth inning after entering the final inning trailing 15-1, but it was not enough to catch the Panthers.

In baseball action, meanwhile, Oneida traveled to Jamestown and fell to York Institute, 6-5.

The Indians' pitchers — Caleb Jeffers earned the start, followed by Bryant Harper, Caleb Lee and Matt Williams — collectively limited York to just two hits. But the Dragons still managed five earned runs, all of them in a pivotal third inning stretch.

Oneida had built a 4-0 lead through two and a half innings, with three of them coming in the top of the third. But things flipped in the bottom half of the inning.

With York leading 6-4 heading into the top of the seventh, Oneida added another run, but couldn't quite complete the comeback.

Cole West went two-of-four at the plate and scored two runs, while Tanner Sexton had an RBI and a run scored. Jeffers and Williams had RBIs as well, while Lee and Cage West scored runs.

Jeffers recorded three strikeouts from the mound, while Williams struck out four.

In Wartburg, meanwhile, the Bulldogs defeated Scott High 19-9 in baseball action.

In soccer action, Clinton defended its home field with a 2-0 win over Scott.
