Riverton and Skyridge each found their way to two victories on Tuesday afternoon as the final stages of the 6A softball tournament kicked off at the Cottonwood Softball Complex.

The Silverwolves shut down Weber in five innings by a score of 12-0 to move on to the quarterfinals. In the quarterfinals they met up with Fremont, who was coming off an extra-inning victory over Mountain Ridge that featured a walkoff hit from Savanah Palmatier.
