Errors allow T-birds to escape with win / Softball

Errors ruled the day in Oak Harbor’s 11-8 loss to the visiting Shorewood High School softball team Tuesday, April 9.

The Wildcats out-hit the Thunderbirds 11-6, but that couldn’t overcome a sloppy day in the field. Oak Harbor committed eight errors and all 11 of Shorewood’s runs were unearned.

The T-birds’ defense was only a tad better. They had five errors, which resulted in six unearned runs.

Shorewood (1-5, 6-6) scored three runs in each of the first two innings to go up 6-0, and then the Wildcats tied the game with two runs in the third and four in the fourth.

The Thunderbirds tacked on three runs in the fifth, and Oak Harbor countered with two runs. That was it for the Wildcats, as Shorewood scored twice in the sixth to secure the win.

The Wildcats received most of their offense from the bottom half of the order. Eleanor Tucker finished with three hits, one a double, and Kayanne McLane and Bailey Roggen added two singles each.

Maddy Tucker had a double, and Cierra LeGendre, Kayla Crocker and Sam Scott all singled.

LeGendre took the tough-luck loss in the circle. She pitched six and a third innings and allowed only four hits while striking out eight and walking four.

Oak Harbor (1-4, 3-8) plays at Mountlake Terrace (2-2, 3-7) at 4 p.m. Thursday, April 11.
