Coming off two big, emotional victories, it would have been easy for the Lebanon softball team to overlook North Montgomery on Tuesday.
And while it wasn't the Tigers best performance of the season, they did more than enough to top the Chargers 12-2 in five innings.
Lebanon is now 13-0 and 8-0 in the conference.
"I was trying to get upset because we didn't play our best, but there isn't much to be upset about," Lebanon head coach Steve Smith said. "This is a game of emotion and they are young ladies that go through the full spectrum of emotions. We were still a little bit on a high from last night (a win over 4A-ranked Pendleton Heights) but in all reality that game wasn't as important as this because this was a conference game. But we found a way to win and I am proud of them for that."
The Tigers led 2-0 after a inning before pulling away in the second.
Three-straight singles by Payton Hollis, Kassidi Cadle and Ashlyn Montgomery loaded the bases for Brooke Montgomery, who hit a 2-run single to make it 4-0.
Hannah Dybalski followed with a 3-run homer to make it 7-0.
North Montgomery twice in the second inning but would get no closer against Lebanon starter Jessica Weaver.
