Rain washed out three Central A Conference softball games on the Havre Blue Ponies' slate last weekend.
Today, the Ponies will make up one of them.
Havre High will host the Browning Indians in a varsity-junior varsity doubleheader at 3 p.m. this afternoon at the Sixth Avenue Memorial Field. The Ponies were supposed to play Browning last Friday in Havre.
HHS already has one win over Browning this season, winning on the road several weeks ago.
Now the Ponies will try and make it a sweep over the Indians and further help their chances of securing a berth in Class A state tournament, which is just a mere four weeks away.
With the makeup game against Browning today, and a makeup trip to Lewistown set for Thursday, it's going to be a busy week for the Blue Ponies and head coach Mike Thill. And that will put added pressure on the arms of starting pitchers Davee McLeod and freshman Rachel Majers. The Ponies will play twice in Lewistown on Thursday — those games were originally slated for last Saturday. Havre will then turn right around and play Lewistown in a single game Saturday, which could determine wether or not the Ponies make the state tournament.
Saturday's game is part of the annual Havre Invitational. The Pony varsity and JV teams will host games at both the Sixth Avenue Memorial Field and the Hospital Park on Saturday, with teams from Cut Bank, Conrad, Glasgow, Lewistown and Shelby in attendance.
Saturday's game against Lewistown, and the rest of the Havre Invite will mark the final time the Ponies play at home this season as well. In the final two weeks of the regular season, the Ponies travel to tournaments in Butte and Laurel.
Today's varsity game against Browning will get underway at 3 at the Sixth Avenue Memorial Field in Havre.
