Big inning can't stop Lightning in sweep over Lady Wolves


Goldendale had one of their better innings in a home game against La Salle, Monday night, in a battle of teams in search of their first league win. In the end, the Lightning took the lead on four unearned runs in the fifth inning and held on for a 19-12 win. The Lightning also won game two 12-2 to complete the sweep.

Kirsten Twohy was 4-5 at the plate in game one, including an adventuresome third inning. Twohy got on with an infield single. She stole second and was hit in the helmet with the throw from the catcher. Twohy took advantage of the errant throw and moved to third. She then scored on a wild pitch.

But, it was the fourth inning where Goldendale showed they could drive in runs. The Wolves sent 10 batters to the plate in the inning with sharp singles from Kiera Henderson, Kailey Garrigus, Sabrina Payne and Twohy. Two batters were walked and Sierra Lamping’s sacrifice fly made the score 7-6 and Twohy’s single tied the game. Kinnedy Whitner was hit to load the bases and Payne‘s single ate up the center fielder allowing three runs to score.

Lamping went the distance in both games. Many of the Lightning hits came off bunts.

Goldendale has games against league leading Naches Valley and another winless team, Granger, remaining.
