Watford City got off to a fast start at the State Class B Girls Fastpitch Softball Tournament in Jamestown on Thursday as the Wolves defeated Hillsboro-Central Valley, 5-2. But the Wolves wouldn’t see another win come their way as they were 10-runned by Kindred, the defending state champions, in Friday’s semifinals and then lost to Des Lacs-Burlington, 8-4, in the third place game on Saturday.
