Tigers remain undefeated, down Bruins


After losing 15-2 to Lebanon a week ago, the Tri-West softball team hoped for a better outcome on Friday against its Sagamore Conference foe.

Despite leading by a run heading to the seventh inning, Tri-West dropped a 7-4 contest in extras to the Tigers.

Although the Class 3A No. 5 Tigers came in with an undefeated record, Lebanon coach Steve Smith knew not to take defending 3A champion Tri-West lightly.

“We know the ability of Tri-West, and our first game was not indicative of what they are,” Smith said. “We knew they were going to battle. They didn’t give up, and we matched that.”

Tri-West coach Stacey Rogers said her team wanted another shot at the Tigers, and that she asked them to compete to their capabilities.

“After the loss last week, who knew what was going to happen today,” she said. “They focused, worked hard all week and we wanted another opportunity.”

Lebanon struck an opening blow in the first inning, as pitcher Ashlyn Montgomery scored from third on a passed ball. Montgomery was key in Lebanon’s victory, pitching eight innings and fanning 10. She also went 4 of 5 from the plate with three RBI.

Lebanon tacked on another run in the top of the fourth as Hannah Dybalski tripled to open the inning. Carly Greene’s RBI single brought Dybalski home and the Tigers took a 2-0 advantage.

With two outs in the bottom of the frame, an RBI double from Tri-West freshman Kenna Ross plated Claire Johnson to cut Lebanon’s lead in half.

“Kenna has come alive and doing fantastic things lately,” Rogers said.

Tri-West pitcher Marita VanDyke hit a triple in the bottom of the sixth, and Ross then homered off Montgomery to give the Bruins a 3-2 advantage heading to the seventh.
