Mount Si varsity blasts Bothell, while the Wildcat JV gets no-hit, plus the rest of the softball on this Friday…..

Good Friday morning. A lot on deck this morning, but first, softball.

What a difference a couple of days can make for Mount Si High School’s softball ladies.

On Tuesday, they were blown out 15-0 by Skyline, and yesterday, they rebounded from that in a big way, doing the routing themselves. Maddy Trout’s grand slam and a three-run shot from Lauren Wilbourne headlined a 12-run third inning for Mount Si, as they blasted Bothell 22-3 at Bothell High School in a Kingco 4A clash.

Trout, bound for Bellevue College this fall, was 3-3 with her grand slam and drove in five RBI’s leading the Wildcats, while Wilbourne’s homer keyed a 2-4 effort, with a walk, three runs scored and four RBI’s. Hayley Aman also had a big day, going 3-5 with three runs scored and four RBI’s pacing Mount Si. Every player who saw action had at least one run scored and most players had at least one hit.

Wilbourne went the distance for the Wildcats in the circle, allowing three runs, one earned, on six hits, walking three and striking out one. Megan Marino doubled and scored a run pacing Bothell.

Mount Si moved past Bothell into fifth place in the 4A standings with the win. The Wildcats are now 3-6 in league, 5-7 overall, and the Cougars dropped to 3-7 overall, 5-10 in league. Mount Si owns the head-to-head tiebreak on Bothell with a season series sweep, so if the two teams finish tied, the Wildcats would win the better postseason position.

The Wildcats are at Woodinville High School to play the Falcons in a scheduled Mount Si home game tonight to be played at WHS’ field. Game time is 6:00 p.m.

JV no-hit by Bothell duo: Grace Lium and Erin Powers combined on a no-hitter for Bothell’s JV as they rolled over the Wildcat junior varsity 11-0 at North Creek Park. Lium worked the first 2 2/3 innings of the five-inning mercy-rule shortened affair, walking two and striking out four, and Powers went the rest of the way (2 1/3 innings), walking one and striking out six. Powers was 1-3 with two RBI’s for Bothell, and Sydney Bergmann doubled, scored a run and also drove in two for the Cougars.

Mount Si plays Woodinville tonight.

Here’s some other high school scores for you this morning, all from Kingco. Scores and stats from Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on Apple IPhones and IPads in their app store.

Woodinville 1, Inglemoor 0: In Kenmore last night, it was a classic Kingco 4A pitcher’s duel where the hits were a bit hard to come by for both teams because both teams’ pitchers were on their ‘A’ games. Woody’s Taylor Rhinehart outdueled the Vikings’ Mackenzie DeKay with the help of Sierra Hein, whose eighth-inning solo shot off of the Inglemoor senior ace proved to be the difference. Rhinehart pitched a two-hitter and struck out 15, while DeKay allowed that one run on just three hits, with six strikeouts. Woodinville remained unbeaten on the season at 8-0 in league, 14-0 overall, while Inglemoor dropped to 7-2 in league play, 12-3 overall.

Skyline 12, Issaquah 0: Caroline Bowman fired a one-hitter as the Spartans raced past the Eagles in the Kingco 4A’s Issaquah district rivalry clash in Sammamish. Bowman walked two and struck out 10 and was aided by a balanced offensive effort. Lauren Lo led Sparty (8-2 league, 10-3 overall) with a double keying a 2-3 effort, scoring twice and driving in three runs. Molly Spaniac and Camille Goo also had two hits each, with both players hitting a double apiece. Both also scored twice and drove in two runs. Morgan Bevell had the lone Issy (1-9 league, 3-10 overall) hit.

Juanita 13, Mercer Island 3: The Rebels scored runs in every inning to take this Kingco 2A/3A battle in five innings. Kristina Warford and Sasha Mitchell both homered for Juanita (7-3 Kingco 2A/3A, 8-7 overall), with Warford driving in six runs and Mitchell adding four RBI’s to the Rebel efforts. Brynn Radke was 3-3 with a triple and run scored pacing JHS. Olivia Kane and Natalie Wilson each were 2-3 with a run scored for MI (4-6 league, 6-10 overall). Megan Murray went the distance in the circle for the Rebels, allowing three runs, two earned, on seven hits, walking one and striking out two.

Also from the colleges on this Friday:

Merrimack shuts out division rival: Merrimack (MA) blanked conference division rival Assumption 4-0 last night in Worcester, MA, for their fourth straight conference win, and Valleyite Tamarra Crowe participated for the Warriors. Crowe, from North Bend, a 2013 Mount Si HS grad, and the MC starting center fielder, recorded two putouts defensively in that position, but went 0-4 at the plate. Merrimack is now 29-12 on the season and well on their way to the postseason tournament.
