Saturday 4-7-18
Shorecrest 9 - Shorewood 7

Shorecrest varsity took on Shorewood Saturday afternoon and won 9 - 7 in a highly competitive game.

It was a very blustery day with sporadic rain showers, forcing an unscheduled 20 minute break to allow a nasty windy gust with rain go through before play could resume.

Shorecrest head coach Mike "Oly" Olsen said, "It was tough to pitch the ball due to the wetness of the ball, however both pitchers Allie Leicester and Bonnie Paulson did a heck of a job battling.

Olsen said, "We pitched to Allison Namba very carefully but she still hit a double. Mia Battle hit two big singles for the T-Birds as well.

"But, we had timely hitting which finally led to the victory."

Shorecrest collected 11 hits in its 9-7 win over Shorewood. The Scots scored 4 runs in the 4th with a home run by freshman Kaine Marcinkowski and a double by senior Shaylee Scott.

Kaine's home run pumped some adrenaline into the Scots. Shaylee Scott led the team with three big hits along with three RBI's, as well as Kat Houghtaling-Wheeler with two hits and two RBI's. Both Narissa McDuffie and Destiny Houghtaling chipped in two hits as well.
