Polson 14, Columbia Falls 1

At Polson, two teams slated to contend for the Northwestern A Division crown squared off against one another in a nonconference game created to compensate for cancellations created by inclimate weather. Both the Lady Pirates and the Columbia Falls WildKats were originally scheduled to play against the visiting Belgrade Lady Panthers, but the soggy weather pattern that moved into the area Friday washed out those plans. So both teams opted to do the next best thing and play one another instead.

TOP OF 1ST - WildKat third base infielder Shaun “Rockin” Rowe drew a walk. She would advance to 2nd on a wild pitch, advancing to 3rd on a single by cleanup hitter Niki Birky to place runners at the corners. But Polson pitcher Shay Duford would get her first strikeout of the game to end the threat.

BOTTOM OF 1ST - Leadoff hitter Ashley Johnson opened with a single. Number two batter Jaylin Kenney drew a walk. Number three batter Shay Duford punched a home run ball over the left field fence to clear the bases and stake Polson to a 3-0 lead. Cleanup hitter Tina Marquardt would double, eventually advancing to third when number six batter Mak Wilson singled, but C Falls would get out of the inning without any further damage.

TOP OF 2ND - WildKat number six batter Erika Nelson would open the inning with a double. Pinch runner Tori Price would steal third after a strikeout of the subsequent batter. After a strikeout, a fielders choice by Polson would elect to get the second out, allowing pinch runner Price to score. A flyout would end the inning.

BOTTOM OF 2ND - Bottom of the order Lady Pirate batter Jordyn Evertz would bunt single and motor her way safely to first. Top of the order batter Johnson would advance the runner on a sacrifice. With two out, number three batter Duford would draw a walk. Cleanup hitter Marquardt would hit a laser to short, which was fielded, but the throw was off line just enough that the runner was safe at first. Had the WildKats made the play, they would have extracted themselves from the inning without any damage. Both the runner Evertz who opened the inning and cleanup hitter Duford would score. On the downside for Marquardt, she would get credit for no RBIs.

TOP OF 3RD - Back-to-back singles by leadoff hitter Tiffany Hummer and Jaylynn Cantu would place two runners on base. Number three batter Rowe hit a sacrifice fly to deep right field which allowed both runners to advance to scoring position. But a strikeout and putout would snuff the threat.

BOTTOM OF 3RD - Polson number six batter Mak Wilson would open the inning with a single. The following batter Jessica Bagnell would likewise single. Number eight hitter Riley Kenney followed with a third single to score Wilson. Bottom of the order batter Evertz stroked a potential hit toward the gap between second and third, but the shortstop was able to glove the ball and throw to third to get the force out. But strategic hits by the top of the Polson order with a single, sacrifice, single and single would score three more runs before the WildKats could close the door.

TOP OF 4TH - The side was retired with a putout and back-to-back strikeouts.

BOTTOM OF 4TH - Number six batter Wilson opened the inning with a walk. A succession of multiple singles and a fielding miscue would score a pair of runs. Pinch hitter Sidnee Brackey would be safe at first when the WildKats elected to negate a run at the plate with barely any margin for wiggle room. A sacrifice fly to right field would score another run. Cleanup hitter Marquardt would single in the top of the order batter Johnson. Middle of the order pinch hitter “Clobberin” Coleen Jacobson would smack and RBI double into the outfield to account for the remainder of Polson scoring before a strikeout would end the inning.

TOP OF 5TH - With one out, top of the order hitter Hummer singled. A followup fielders choice would negate any threat from the leadoff runner by forcing them out at second base. A routine putout would end the game on account of the ten run margin rule.

Also turning in 1-3 performances were Missoula Sentinel, Kalispell Flathead and Kalispell Glacier.

Class B-C

Florence sweeps Plains

At Florence, junior Courtney Byrne led the Falcons to a pair of Western B-C wins over the Trotters in their season-openers.

Byrne earned the win in both contests, which were shortened to five innings because of the 10-run margin rule. Florence won the first game 10-0 and the second 16-0.

Byrne tossed a one-hitter in the opener and a two-hitter in the late game. She struck out 13 and didn’t walk a batter on the day.

Florence coach Joe McKay said he was forced to start Byrne in both games because his other pitchers didn’t have enough practices in because of the flu outbreak at the school and a rash of automobile accidents.

“We have other players,” he said, “but we have to do what we have to do.”

Byrne went 2 for 2 with a double, triple and three runs batted in in the first game. She had a triple and two RBIs in the second one.

Paige Bodner went 4 for 4 with two triples, a double and an RBI to lead the Falcons’ 13-hit attack in the late game. Micayla Cole was 2 for 4 with three RBIs.
