It was worth the wait. After rain wiped out the first two Coupeville High School softball games, the Wolves finally got to play, defeating rival South Whidbey 6-3 in Coupeville.
The Wolves scored three runs in each of the first and fourth innings to secure the win.
Coupeville mixed walks to Madeline Roberts, MaKayla Bailey and Haley Sherman with a single by Bree Messner and three passed balls to score three in the opening inning.
In the fourth, Emily Licence and Roberts walked then scored on a single by Messner and a ground out from Sherman. Hailey Hammer singled in the third run.
While the offense was piling up six runs, Bailey struck out eight to stymie the Falcon attack. She walked only one in contrast to the 11 walks yielded by South Whidbey.
Messner and Hammer finished with two hits each.
Coupeville (1-0) goes to Sultan (1-0) at 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 25.
