For the Lady Titans, their inaugural season is looking promising as they are tied with Onalaska for fourth position in the league and split games with them this past April 29. Running a doubleheader with the Loggers, Pe Ell-Willapa Valley (P-WV) ran away with the first game 9-1.
"The bats were real solid in game one for P-WV with the 14 hits and with only 1 error," said Titan fastpitch coach Ken Olson.
Titan pitcher Dakota Brooks threw a no-hitter in the first game with nine strikeouts and only three walks. Sam Woodward went 4 for 4 from the plate with a double and a triple. Dakota Brooks slapped 3 of 4 with a pair of doubles.
"We played a very solid high school softball game in the first game," Olson said.
But the Titans could not hold out for the double when they went down in the second game 8-4.
"They jumped on us in the first inning with two outs after a throwing error and a double by their cleanup hitter," notes Olson.
"In the big second inning, a leadoff walk turned into a momentum builder for the Loggers and they scored three to put us in a hole that we chipped away at until inning seven, when they scored two more to ice it," Olson said.
Tied for the regular season it may come down to a coin toss for the two teams with the Titans running to Toledo for a doubleheader and their final league game and ending their season with an away non-league game in Hoquiam May 12.
