Sunday scores…

Here’s the scoreboard from yesterday’s games.

Softball: U14 team with Valley players scores tournament title
The Issaquah Flame U14 Zacher fastpitch team took home the crown yesterday at the June Final tournament, run by the American Softball Association’s Seattle chapter.

The Flame beat the Washington Hurricanes U16 team 3-2 in the championship game to get the title. Four North Bend players play on the Flame, and all had an impact on the day’s action for their team. Mount Si High School freshman-to-be Maddy Trout went 2-2 with a double and run batted in as the Flame tied the Hurricanes to open play yesterday, then in a 17-1 blowout of the Woodinville Reign U18 which sent the Flame into the finals, Trout once again went 2-2 with a double, but scored a run and drove in two more. Fellow MSHS frosh-to-be Emily Webb also doubled and scored twice, and Wildcat sophomore to be Bayley Barnett had a hit and run batted in.

Barnett pitched the game against the Reign and threw two solid innings, giving up one run on three hits, striking out two.

Another Mount Si HS freshman-to-be, C.J. Howatson, also drove in a run to aid the Flame in thar win.

Baseball: Chaffey finishes strong in Nevada tournament despite loss
The Chaffey U18 baseball team took fourth in their tournament down in Reno, NV, after falling in the third-place game in the event, to the Sierra Sun Devils of Reno. Carson Breshears went 2-3 with two runs scored and a third run driven in, but it was not enough as the Wildcat senior-to-be and his teammates fell 8-6 to the Sun Devils.

Little League baseball: Tournaments start and end for local All-Star teams
The “Majors” All-Star teams from all three local Little Leagues find themselves in the loser-out rounds after running into trouble over the weekend in the opening rounds of the District 9 tournament in Issaquah.

Sno-Valley North and Falls fell in their opening round games Saturday, while the Snoqualmie Valley Little League team, after a win Saturday, was routed in a big way yesterday by Mercer Island.

In the SVLL game Saturday, they beat Bellevue East 8-4. Blake Meister homered, and Will Caro added a pair of doubles to lead the local boys, who then ran into a buzzsaw known as the Mercer Island offense yesterday. MI hit a total of seven home runs, with one player, Greg Fuchs, hitting three himself, as they defeated SVLL.

Sno-Valley North had a homer on Saturday from Hunter Tollie, but fell to Bellevue West 14-5, and both Trevor Clem and Connor Baxter doubled to lead the way for the Falls team in a 10-3 loss to Sammamish, also on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the tournament for nine and ten-year old players is over for the local leagues, after both Falls and SVLL were handed 14-4 defeats on consecutive days by the Issaquah all-star team to end their tournament runs. Falls fell Friday, and SVLL fell Saturday.

Volleyball: Knoppi, NW Juniors break through at nationals
The Northwest Juniors Elite U18 volleyball team scored a win yesterday in the USA Volleyball nationals in Dallas.

NWJ, with Mount Si grad Gen Knoppi, posted their win against a team from Iowa, but also fell to teams from St. Louis and Omaha. They are continuing play today, which also starts the tournament for the other teams we will be following – the Sudden Impact 16s and KJ 15s. Both have returning Wildcat varsity players playing this week in the national event.

Baseball: Rock Creek, Michael’s U18 teams score wins in regional tourneys
Rock Creek and Michael’s Toyota U18 baseball teams, both of whom have Mount Si grads playing for them, took wins yesterday in out of town events.

RC scored a 7-4 win over the Bulldogs down in Portland, with 2013 alum Connor Jensen getting a hit and scoring a run for Rock Creek, and Michael’s won at the Whitworth tourney 6-2 with a hit and run scored from fellow grad Tanner Simpson.
