Eagles fly by 'Cats | Softball

The Oak Harbor High School softball team scored first but host Ferndale score much more often in the Golden Eagles' 14-2 non-league win Wednesday, March 26.

The Wildcats scored twice in the top of the first, but that was it for the Oak Harbor offense and Ferndale (4-1) took off from there. The Golden Eagles scored four runs in the first and five in the third to roll to the win.

Oak Harbor received hits from Natalie Fiallos, Tricia Sarns, Shea Davis and Sydney Ericksen.

A positive note for the Wildcats was an improved defense, according to coach Todd Showalter. Oak Harbor committed four errors, but none affected the scoring, Showalter said.

“We made a lot more fundamental plays and took a step forward,” Showalter said of his young team. The Wildcat lineup included one senior, one junior, five sophomores and three freshmen.

Oak Harbor (0-3) hosts Squalicum (0-4) in a non-league game at 4 p.m. Thursday, March 27.
