Softball on this Monday….

Let’s wrap up our weekend with a look at softball.

Issaquah team finishes runner-up in local tournament
The Issaquah Flame 14’s Moe won a pair of games yesterday at the ASA September Final tournament in Kent to make it to the championship game in their playoff bracket. They ended up falling in that title contest, 8-1, to the Fury Black team and finished as the runners-up in the 14/16U “Silver” bracket. Among the members of the Flame is Valley middle-schooler Hailey Hoke.

Oregon Blaze 13, Northwest Ladysharks 16s Hagen 6: Mount Si High School player Rose Vogt went 2-3 and drove in two runs, but the Kirkland-based ‘Sharks finished on the short end of a slugfest at the Willamette tournament in Salem, OR, falling to the Oregon-based team.

Absolute Blast’ 00 14s 10, San Diego Breakers 2: Mount Si freshman Lexi Wetherbee went 2-2 and scored twice to lead the Woodinville-based Blast to the blowout of the southern California team at the Surf City weekend tournament in Anaheim, CA. Cedarcrest freshman Cassidy Derieg scored a run as well for AbB despite an 0-2 effort at the plate, and also pitched one scoreless inning in the circle, not allowing a hit. Fellow Red Wolve frosh Elaine Townley walked once and was hitless in another at-bat, also for the Blast.

Northwest Bullets-PDX 15, Northwest Ladysharks 16s Hagen 0: The Portland-based Bullets, who have an affiliate team located in Issaquah, blasted the ‘Sharks in Salem; Vogt went 1-1 with a walk. The Bullets’ Issaquah team is the Bullets Zacher squad, which features Mount Si HS player Maddy Trout. That team did not compete in this weekend’s tournament.

California Cruisers 2, Absolute Blast ’00 14s 1: Townley was on the short end of a pitcher’s duel in this one for AbB, allowing both Cruiser runs on just four hits in five innings, striking out five. She also went 0-2, while Wetherbee (0-3) and Derieg (0-2) also went hitless on the contest for the Woodinville team.
