Chugiak and Eagle River want to make the state softball tournament, they’ll have to do it the hard way.

Both the Mustangs and Wolves lost their opening-round games Tuesday at the Cook Inlet Conference tournament, falling into the loser’s bracket. On Tuesday, fourth seed Chugiak took a 4-0 lead into the fifth inning against No. 5 Service before surrendering 10 runs over the final three frames in a 10-5 loss at the Albrecht Fields in Anchorage. Abby Stewart went 2-for-4 to lead Chugiak, which was scheduled to play at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Albrecht.

Eagle River’s opening round was much more brief, as the seventh-seeded Wolves were no-hit by No. 2 seed Dimond in an 8-0 first-round loss. The Wolves were scheduled to play Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. Winners of Wednesday’s loser’s bracket games advanced to play Thursday; losers were eliminated.
