Friday’s 2B Softball: Toutle Lake Sweeps Napavine
By The Chronicle
NAPAVINE — Napavine battled with Toutle Lake in two games, but the Tigers fell to the Ducks in both games of a Central 2B League doubleheader here on Friday.
In Game 1, Toutle Lake scored four runs in the first inning, and Napavine was never able to recover in a 6-2 loss. The Tigers scored runs in the third and fifth innings, but only had three hits total and five errors, including two errors in the first inning, in the loss.
“(Toutle Lake) doesn’t make a lot of mistakes. It was a really good chance to see how we matched up,” Napavine coach Chad Williams said. “I thought we competed. We have plenty of room for improvement, and the girls are excited in the direction we’re heading.”
Toutle Lake won the second game 14-4. Maddie Thompson was 2 for 4 with a run and Abbi Music was 2 for 4 with a double and three RBIs. Music also pitched all seven innings, striking out 10.
“We had some really big errors and we had a few walks. A couple really untimely errors that killed us, and you can’t do that against a team like Toutle,” Williams said. “There are a few teams like that. You just can’t make those mistakes.”
Napavine (4-2, all league) travels to face Adna on Saturday, April 8, for a noon C2BL doubleheader.
Pe Ell-Willapa Valley Scoots Past Toledo
TOLEDO — Pe Ell-Willapa Valley scored 33 runs in two games, sweeping Toledo in a Central 2B League softball doubleheader here on Friday.
In Game 1, the Titans scored 12 runs in the third inning to cap an 18-0 win.
Dakota Brooks faced 11 batters and struck out six with no walks. She was also 3 for 4 at the plate with a double and four RBIs. Katelyn McGow, Sid Pollard, Grace Hodel, Katie Adkins, Abby Hodel and Britney Patrick each had two hits for PWV.
Game 2 was more of the same, as PWV scored 13 runs in the first inning to put the game out of reach and cruised to a 15-0 win in three innings.
Brooks, Kamryn Adkins and Railey Smith were each 3 for 3 at the plate, with Adkins knocking in two runs and Brooks adding an RBI.
Sisters Kamryn and Katie Adkins combined to allow just two hits in the win in the circle.
“We were swinging the bats really well today, squaring up on a lot of balls,” PWV coach Ken Olson said. “Toledo’s building a program out there; give them a lot of credit. It’s hard, they stuck with it and fought till the end. … We’re just swinging the bats well.”
PWV has outscored its opponents 71-0 with 71 hits in 19 innings so far this season.
PWV (5-0, 5-0) travels to face Morton-White Pass on Saturday, April 8, in a C2BL doubleheader. Toledo (0-6, 0-6) hits the road to face Onalaska on Wednesday, April 12, in a league twinbill.
