Wednesday, May 15, 2013

The Shorecrest softball team plays a Northwest District 3A tournament elimination game against Ferndale after a 7-3 victory over Everett and a 4-3 loss to Mountlake Terrace Tuesday at Phil Johnson Fields in Everett.

In Shorecrest’s 4-3 loss to Mountlake Terrace, Amanda Hartley did all she could to give Shorecrest a boost, but it wasn't enough to get past MLT. Hartley went a perfect 2 for 2 at the plate. She homered in the first inning and singled in the seventh inning.

MLT's lineup had no answer for Amanda Eshelman. MLT managed just three hits off of the Shorecrest pitcher, who allowed no earned runs, walked one and struck out five during her 4 2/3 innings of work.

Shorecrest jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first. After Jeanna Berg singled, Shorecrest kept the pressure on MLT pitching, as Hartley homered, driving in Berg.

Terrace never surrendered the lead after the third inning, scoring three runs on a two-run double and an RBI single.

One run in the bottom of the fifth helped Shorecrest close its deficit to 4-3. An RBI double by Berg sparked Shorecrest's rally, which ended when Anisa Gomez flied out.

In Shorecrest’s 7-1 victory, Everett didn't stand a chance.

Shorecrest scored three runs in the second on an RBI single by Callie Anderson and a two-run error.

Anderson boosted her batting average thanks to a perfect 4-4 day at the plate to pace Shorecrest.

Winning pitcher Hartley pitched 6 2/3 innings and allowed one earned run, six hits and no walks while striking out four.

The game was never in doubt after the first, as Shorecrest scored two runs on a two-run single by Gomez.

After a quick strike from Everett, Shorecrest responded with two runs in the sixth. Shorecrest scored on an RBI single by Anderson and an RBI double by Hartley.
