Bruins best Patriots

LIZTON — The Tri-West softball team was certainly ready for prom Saturday morning.

The Bruins withstood an early fight from Bethesda Christian to win 10-0 in five innings for the 9 a.m. start time Saturday.

Tri-West led 3-0 through three innings and two outs before exploding for seven runs.

“It took a little bit to come alive today, it’s Saturday morning early, they’re all thinking about prom,” Tri-West coach Stacey Rogers said. “It took a couple innings and we started hitting the ball, so it worked out for us.”

Bethesda Christian left four on base in the second and third innings and had slowed down the Bruins. The game just got away from the Patriots in the third inning.

Patriots coach Terry Benge said, “We’re all freshman and sophomores and made a few mistakes, pressure got put on and our pitcher didn’t have her best stuff today. You try to hold them right there, three runs, we had runners on several times but just couldn’t turn it.”

In the bottom of the third inning, Bethesda Christian nearly had Tri-West off the field with no runs scored and two outs. That’s until a double by sophomore Marita Vandyke scored senior Kari Sellers and opened the flood gates. Senior Kaitlyn Settlemoir scored junior Samme Miller and Vandyke. Sophomore Lizzie Meyer, sophomore Claire Johnson, senior Alyssa Clark and senior Taylor Baggett each brought in runners on the next four at-bats for six straight hits and seven straight runs.

“We have tended to score in groups,” Rogers said. “Not consistently throughout the whole game, but we’ll have a really good inning.”

Senior Kendra Okey had two hits for the Patriots. Sophomores Kylie Minton and Sara Harrison and freshmen Heather Gordon and Lauren Buck each added a hit individually.
