Saturday, May 19, 2012

Shorecrest’s softball season ended with a 10-7 loss to Mountlake Terrace Thursday at Meridian Park School in the Northwest District 3A tournament.

The Scots' season ends with a 12-11 overall record while Mountlake Terrace moves on in District tournament play against Meadowdale in Sedro-Woolley Saturday, needing to win two games to qualify for the State 3A tournament next week.

In Shorecrest’s 10-7 loss to Mountlake Terrace Thursday, the Scots took a 7-5 lead with 5 runs in the top of the fifth inning, but the Hawks scored 3 runs in the bottom of the fifth and 2 in the sixth. Olivia Nolan hit a single, a double and a triple; Jeanna Berg and Anisa Gomez each hit home runs; and Callie Andersen and Alissa Kaufhold each hit doubles.

The Scots lost despite out-hitting Mountlake Terrace 15-14. Nolan singled in the fourth inning, doubled in the fifth and tripled in the seventh.

In Shorecrest’s 14-4 tournament victory over Ferndale Tuesday in Sedro-Woolley, the Scots refused to relinquish the lead after grabbing it early.

Seven runs in the first three innings allowed the Scots to put the game away early.

An RBI double and a two-run single in the first inning and a sacrifice fly and a two-run home run by Hartley during the second inning supplied the early offense for the Scots.

Hartley racked up three RBI on two hits. Eshelman got it done on the rubber on the way to a win. She allowed four runs over five innings. She struck out five, walked two and surrendered seven hits.

The Scots easily handled Ferndale pitching as seven hitters combined for 14 hits.

Shorecrest added four more runs in the top of the fourth. The inning looked promising, as Eshelman singled, bringing home Sophie Knutsen to kick things off. That was followed by Katherine Taylor's single, plating Kaufhold and Eshelman.
