Hyaks 5, Loggerettes 4
OYEHUT — Maria Garman’s run-scoring triple capped a wild seventh inning to give North Beach a dramatic win over Wishkah in a non-league game Wednesday at Oyehut.
Down 3-1 after six innings, Wishkah rallied with three runs in the top of the seventh. Hannah Olson’s two-run double tied it and her sister Emily followed with a run-scoring double to give the Loggerettes the lead.
Mariah Pope doubled, however, to open North Beach’s half of the same inning and scored the tying run on Nikkie Linderman’s bunt single.
One out later, Garman tripled into the gap in right-center to end it.
The Hyaks (2-0) have won both their games with seventh-inning rallies.
“The girls are showing great resiliency,” North Beach coach Maynard Reed said. “They’re going out and are confident in their hitting.”
The Pope sisters, Mariah and Cora, were cited for fine play. Cora Pope was the winning pitcher and helped her cause with a solo homer.
Teagan Louthan had three hits, including a triple, for the Loggerettes (2-1).
“Our mental errors got to us a little bit at the end,” Wishkah coach Tove Reibel said. “They’re growing and I’m really proud of where we’re at. We see this big advancement and that’s what I want from this team.”
The Hyaks host Oakville in a doubleheader today. The Loggerettes travel to Naselle on April 10.

Papermakers 9, Bulldogs 2
CAMAS — Class 4A Camas slammed 13 hits, including two homers and a pair of triples, to beat Montesano in a non-league game Tuesday at Camas.
The Papermakers, who placed in the state 3A tournament last year, also benefited from eight Bulldog errors. Many of those were outfield muffs that allowed batters to take extra bases on hits.
Camas, which scored in every inning but the first, is coached by former Aberdeen coach Ken Nidick.
Courtney Swan and Justine Nuckols had three hits apiece, while LeeAnn Rhoden added two hits for Monte (0-2). All three were cited by Bulldog coach Pat Pace for their offensive contributions.
“We stranded eight runners in scoring position, so we’re not executing at the plate at the right time,” Pace noted. “I do have to give credit to Camas. They’re a very talented team.”
The Bulldogs are scheduled to open league play today with a doubleheader at Forks.

Naselle center fielder Shae Trost made a spectacular catch and doubled the runner off second to helped deny the Acorns (0-3) in the bottom of the 10th.

Wildcats 22, Owls 6
WESTPORT — Cashing in on 16 walks, Ocosta strolled past inexperienced Mary M. Knight in a non-league game Wednesday at GAR Park.
The Wildcats (4-4) sent 25 batters plateward in a 19-run first inning that included 12 walks and two hit batters. The Owls have revived their baseball program following a 25-year absence.
“The biggest thing was they had difficulty throwing strikes in the first inning,” Ocosta coach Jason Quinby said. “It was a walk-fest for quite a while. It was nice because we got to play our bench guys. And Mary M. Knight never gave up, they kept a real positive attitude all the time.”
Kurt Bambauer and Cristian Ibarra had two hits each for the Wildcats.
Ocosta will be idle until visiting Oakville on April 8.
