Vikings strike late, rout Bulldogs
Playing in a 4A Kingco Crown Division game on Wednesday night at Garfield High, it took some time for the Vikings to get to starter Marah Williams, but they did so late in an 11-1 rout that ended by the mercy rule after six innings.
The Bulldogs took the lead early as starter Hayley Lowe gave up an RBI base hit in the first inning, but that is all Garfield would get.
The Vikings took the lead for good in the fifth inning and struck for a seven-spot in the sixth to end the game.
Highlighting the offense was junior Taylor Peacocke, going 3-for-4 with a home run and a double, followed by Holly Sandborg at 2-for-4 with a pair of runs batted in.
With the win, the Vikings broke out of a three-way tie into sole possession of second place at 6-5 in league play, with Ballard and Bothell sitting at .500 (5-5).
Bothell fastpitch jumps on Roosevelt
The Cougars scored early and often in an 11-1 victory over the Roughriders on Wednesday afternoon at home, plating three runs in the first, third and fourth innings.
Leading Bothell's 12-hit attack was sophomore Arista Honey, who slammed a home run and a double, with Sammy Morris going 3-for-4 with a stolen base and two runs scored.
Starting pitcher Julia Warner held the Roughriders ini check, allowing just one run on two hits.
Bothell improved to .500 at 5-5 in league play and 8-8 overall with the win.
