One bad inning hurts Central Whidbey in district opener / 8-10 softball

The Central Whidbey Little League 8-10 softball team dropped its district tournament opener 18-10 to Sedro-Woolley Tuesday, June 27, in Anacortes.

One bad inning doomed Central Whidbey, which includes three players from South Whidbey. Sedro-Woolley erased a 2-1 deficit by scoring 10 unearned runs in the second inning.

“The big stage ruffled their feathers a bit once things started to get away from them defensively,” Central Whidbey coach Fred Farris said. “They fought back hard to get back into the game.”

Second baseman Mia Farris (hit and two runs) and shortstop Taylor Brotemarkle (hit and run) led Central Whidbey on offense and played “great defense” with “crowd-igniting catches,” according to coach Farris.

Allison Nastali and Taylor Auld each scored twice and Mayleen Weatherford added a run.

Brionna Blouin played a solid defensive game at first base, coach Farris said.
