Oak Harbor comes from behind to stop Stanwood / Softball

Coming from five runs down, the Oak Harbor High School softball team tripped visiting Stanwood 10-7 Tuesday, April 16.

The Spartans scored all of their runs in the first two innings to go up 7-2.

At that point, Cierra LeGendre took over in the circle for Oak Harbor and blanked Stanwood (0-8, 0-14) the rest of the way on three hits and five strikeouts. She was backed by an errorless defense.

LeGendre’s efforts gave the Oak Harbor offense a chance to get back in the game.

The Wildcats scored four runs in the bottom of the second inning to make it 7-6. Walks to Emily Wilson and Maddy Tucker sandwiched around a single by Miranda Wilson loaded the bases and got the big inning started.

Emily Wilson scored on LeGendre’s ground out, then Kayla Crocker walked to reload the bases.

An error off the bat of Sam Scott plated Miranda Wilson, then Kait Sheer blasted the ball over the center fielder’s head for a two-run double.

Oak Harbor took the lead for good with two runs in the third when the Wilsons singled and scored on Tucker’s double.

The Wildcats produced a little breathing room with two runs in the sixth. Scott tripled and Scheer walked, then Abigale Fierro, running for Scott, scored on Madisyn Erbe’s ground out. An error on Ceirra Dean’s fly ball allowed Scheer to score.

Oak Harbor coach Alicia Ashburn was pleased with her team’s ability to fight back, and praised its improvement over the course of the season.

Miranda Wilson finished with two hits and three runs; Tucker had a double, two runs and two RBI; LeGendre produced two RBI on two hits; Scheer had two hits and two RBI; and Scott and Emily Wilson each added hits.

Oak Harbor (2-6, 4-10) now plays three straight road games, beginning at Marysville-Pilchuck (6-1, 8-5) at 4 p.m. Monday, April 22.
