Friday scores…..

Scores and more from yesterday:

NSA Softball State U14 tournament: Flame Abraham fall in first game
In Richland, the National Softball Association’s U14 state girls’ softball tournament got underway yesterday, and for the Issaquah Flame Abraham, the day did not go well, as they fell to the Washington Explosion 10-0. Abraham was limited to just one hit, and that one hit came from Mount Si HS freshman-to-be Heather Hinton.

In other action, the Flame THTH fell twice, first to Illusion 7-1 then to the Camas Storm 6-2. Snoqualmie’s Lauren Wilbourne went a combined 3-5 in the two games and scored a run. Also, the Carnation-based Redhawks won 4-2 over the Spokane Crash; we hope to have stats from their games at some point later this weekend.

Seattle Metro ASA Championships: No-hitter keeps Snohomish team, CHS players alive for title
The Snohomish Shock U18 softball team defeated the Diamond Dusters of Bonney Lake 10-0 last night to remain alive in the Seattle Metro American Softball Association championships. CHS’ Taylor Turner went hitless in two at-bats, but walked two other times, scored twice and drove in two more. Former Red Wolve Jerrica Kjorsvik, who graduated earlier this month from the school, also drove in a run on a sacrifice fly. The efforts of the Cedarcrest players past and present were a help to their pitcher, Snohomish High School’s Kelsi Goodwin, and she returned the favor in kind, pitching a no-hitter. Good stuff from them, that’s for sure.

Also, the Shock fell to TNT 5-2 in the opener yesterday, with Turner going 1-3. Kjorsvik also had an at-bat, and did not get a hit.

On the U16 side, Bellevue Blast Martin won twice to put themselves in position for the title. They defeated Sudden Impact 12-9 and the Acers 5-2. The Blast features CHS catcher LuAnn Townley.

Baseball: Teams travel all over the West
Local teams have traveled out of town this weekend for tournament action. In Reno yesterday, Chaffey U18 continued its strong showing at a tourney there, beating a team from Sacramento 16-8. Carson Breshears’ bat was as hot as the temperature in Washoe County, as the MSHS senior-to-be went 2-4, with a double, two runs scored and two more driven in to aid the Bellevue team.

In Portland, Rock Creek U18 won 1-0 over Showtime Baseball, with MSHS grad Connor Jensen going 1-3. Over at the Palouse Summer Series, the Federal Way Buzz beat the Washington A’s 13-5. Mount Si grad Connor Swift was hitless in two at-bats for the A’s, but walked a third time, scored a run and drove in another. Fellow Wildcat Austin Hall was hitless in his lone at-bat for the A’s.

In Spokane, Michael’s Toyota U18 scored another win at the Whitworth tourney, the final score was 3-2. MSHS’ Tanner Simpson was hitless in two at-bats for Michael’s.

Golf: WJGA hits the Valley for first of two district stops in our community
The Washington Junior Golf Association’s District 2 subdistrict tournament swing made the first of two stops in the Valley yesterday, as they hit the links at Carnation Golf Course. A total of nearly 20 golfers who either are from the Valley or represent local courses competed in the event, and the big news was that two more of those local reps qualified for the association’s district tournament later this summer. That included Juanita High boys’ golf star Frank Garber, representing the TPC Snoqualmie Ridge course; he fired a round of 71 to punch his berth.

Full scores after the break. Their next subdistrict meet is at Mount Si Golf Course in Snoqualmie July 8.
