Red Wolve softball wins slugfest while Mount Si falls in rout. Also diamond cuts from the ladies on this hump day Wednesday……

Time for softball. Cedarcrest High School’s softball team took on Shorecrest yesterday, and it looked as if it could be another long day for the Red Wolves after the Scots broke out to an early 4-0 lead. But CHS rallied and won a slugfest in the end beating Shorecrest.

Senior leadership led the way, as both Michaela Carter and Katelynn Smith homered, and the lineup as a whole proved to be dangerous as CHS won at home in Duvall 16-11.

Carter’s homer keyed a 3-5 performance in which she scored three runs and drove in six, and Smith also doubled as part of a three-hit effort herself, driving in four runs. Freshman Allyson Smith also delivered, with two doubles, two runs scored and four RBI’s.

After the Scots broke out to the lead, the Red Wolves struck in the second with the Smith’s doing the damage. Allyson reached on an error by Shorecrest, then Katelynn’s double scored Allyson to put Cedarcrest on the board. The Red Wolves tied the game in the third with three runs; the key play was a Carter single that scored the freshman duo of “Kat and the Mad Dog” – Kat Townley and Madelyn “Mad Dog” Davidson. Townley reached on a double and finished 1-5 with that double and two runs scored while Davidson went 3-3 with four runs scored.

Shorecrest scored five in the fourth to take the lead back, only to see Cedarcrest respond in kind in their half of the frame. The runs here were all scored on the two aforementioned homers. Carter’s shot brought in “Kat and the Mad Dog” while the Smith’s were part of the second –Katelynn hitting it out with Allyson on base. CHS took the lead with three runs in the fifth. CHS got the advantage with a Payton Pluschke single that scored Kenzie Brown, then a walk to Katelynn Smith scored Davidson, and Pluschke finished out the scoring on an error by Shorecrest’s catcher. Allyson Smith’s double in the sixth came with the bases loaded and scored Brown, Davidson and Carter to close things out.

Shorecrest’s two top hitters –Narissa McDuffie and Kaine Marcinkowski – were on their “A” games yesterday with McDuffie going 4-5 with a double, three runs scored and two RBI’s, while Marcinkowski went 2-4 with three runs scored and two RBI’s.

The Red Wolves host Snohomish Friday at 4:00 at Cedarcrest High School in Duvall.

Eastlake pours it on late to blast Mount Si softball
The Eastlake Wolves were up 6-3 headed to the sixth inning of their makeup game with Mount Si yesterday at Issaquah High School, then scored 12 unanswered runs in the final two frames to turn a competitive battle into a blowout for the Wolves.

Megan Cotton homered and drove in four runs for Eastlake in the 18-3 rout in a game being made up from an early-season rainout.

Abby Gronewald homered for Mount Si as part of a 2-3 effort, driving in two runs, but Eastlake was very dangerous all over the batting order. Cotton also doubled in the game, as did Belle Schmidt, who scored two runs, and Morgan Olynyk added two hits, scored three runs and drove in three more.

Wildcat freshman pitcher Kate Gotts fared well, allowing five runs, two earned, on six hits in 3 1/3 innings. Eastlake’s Leslie Hines got the win in the circle, allowing three runs on five hits in three innings of work.

Mount Si hosts Inglemoor today at Issaquah High School. First pitch is at 4:30 p.m.
