NW blanks Sedro-Woolley, reaches district semifinals / 11-12 baseball

North Whidbey earned a spot in the District 11 Major Little League semifinals with a 6-0 win over host Sedro-Woolley Thursday, June 28.

North Whidbey takes on South Whidbey at 6 p.m. Friday, June 29, for the right to face unbeaten Burlington-Edison in the championship series Saturday.

Both Whidbey teams lost to Burlington-Edison earlier in the tournament and will have to defeat B-E twice Saturday to win the district title and a trip to the state tournament.

The first game starts at 1 p.m. in Sedro-Woolley; the second, if necessary, will follow at 3.

Taryn Hardy led North Whidbey in the win over Sedro-Woolley by pitching a two-hit shutout. Hardy struck out seven, walked none and never allowed a Sedro-Woolley runner past second base.

North Whidbey scored single runs in the second, third and fourth innings, and then cemented the win with a three-run fifth.

Nate Moore singled in the second and scored on Holden Jesus’ ground out.

Gunnar Lutz singled and scored in the third, and base hits by Jacob Figarelle and Hardy led to run in the fourth.

After Will Ward singled and Connor Cash walked in the fifth, Moore ripped a two-run double. Figarelle singled in Moore for the final run.
