Knights blank Coupeville 8-0 / Baseball

After dropping the series finale 8-0 to King’s at Shorewood High School Friday, April 5, things won’t get any easier for a Coupeville High School baseball team looking for its first win.

The Wolves (0-6, 0-10) challenge pitching-rich South Whidbey (8-1, 11-1) in a three-games series next week.

The Falcon staff has put together three combined no-hitters this spring and six shutouts. Coupeville, which has a season-high three runs in one game, has scored one run in three games and none in four.

South Whidbey also boasts a strong attack, averaging over nine runs per game.

The Wolves’ offense continued its struggles against King’s Friday, managing only three base runners over the seven innings. Daniel Olson singled and walked and Gavin Knoblich singled against Isaac Hines, who recorded 10 strikeouts.

King’s upped its North Sound Conference record to 4-2 and overall mark to 5-6.

The Knights scored three runs in the both the first and second innings to bury the Wolves early.

Coupeville pitched well after the second, allowing only one hit the rest of the way.
