Bobcats 11, Wolves 0
Aberdeen unleashed an extra-base barrage in blanking Black Hills in an Evergreen 2A Conference game shortened to five innings by the 10-run mercy rule on Thursday at the Bishop Athletic Complex.
Seven of Aberdeen’s 10 hits went for extra bases.
Shannon Chesterman’s three-run homer capped an eight-run first inning that also included doubles by Mo Donovan, Alexxi Timmons and Grace Utto-Galarneau.
Chesterman doubled later in the contest, while Utto-Galarneau doubled twice.
“We definitely hit gaps today, that’s for sure,” Aberdeen coach Jeff Timmons said. “The girls stayed on the ball and hit where the ball was pitched.”
Donovan and Utto-Galarneau combined on a four-hitter.
The Bobcats (4-3) host Tumwater today.

ELMA — Brooke Goldsmith tossed a five-hitter in the opening game and Elma pounded 29 hits in the doubleheader to sweep Rochester, 9-2 and 7-3, in Evergreen 1A softball action Thursday at Eagle Field.
Sydney Smythe was singled out for her performance in the first game, where she was 3-for-4 with two doubles and two RBIs for the Eagles (3-1, 6-2). She was cited for both offense and defense. The Eagles had 17 hits in that contest.
“Our bats were alive in that (first) game, for sure, with 17 hits,” said Elma head coach Janene Todd. “We had great defense behind our hitting.”
Taylor Wilson tripled in the first game.
In the second game, Ashley Cooper came in to pitch in relief in the sixth and seventh innings and had a solid outing, according to Todd. She did not walk a batter and was backed by strong defense.
Rochester won both junior varsity games.
On Thursday, Elma travels to Rainier for a doubleheader.

OYEHUT — Forks emphatically handed North Beach its first defeats by sweeping the Hyaks in a non-league doubleheader Thursday at Oyehut.
The Class 1A Spartans prevailed, 15-0 and 11-1.
“We have a league game at Naselle (Friday) and I think our minds were on that,” Hyak coach Maynard Reed said.
The Hyaks fell to 6-2 overall.
ELMA — Layne Sutten pitched a four-hitter and struck out 10 as Elma salvaged a split with Rochester in an Evergreen 1A League doubleheader Thursday at Eagle Field.
Elma won the second game, 7-4, after dropping the opener, 3-2.
Austin Black, Tyler Ladue and Austin Neary delivered RBI singles in a three-run third inning that gave Elma a permanent lead in the second game.
Rochester made a three-run fourth inning stand up in the opening game. Charlie Simpson’s two-run double in the sixth cut the margin to one, but the Eagles (5-5, 7-5) were unable to equalize.
A disputed interference call cost the Eagles a run in the first inning of that contest. Nick Camenzind was the hard-luck loser for the Eagles.
“Both Camenzind and Sutten threw well,” Elma coach Scott Rowland said. “We had mental mistakes that cost us from putting runs on the board (in the first game) and let one slip away.”
The Eagles draw the league bye Tuesday before traveling to Rainier on Thursday.

Knollen Hottendorf delivered four hits, while Justin Chong added three for the Hyaks (2-4). Mary M. Knight is reviving its baseball program following an absence of many years.
Austin Perez and Tyler Turner, meanwhile, combined to pitch a one-hitter.
“That’s the most (balls) we’ve ever put in play,” Hyak coach Rob Schreiber said. “That’s what we’ve been working on all week because we had a real problem with strikeouts. And Perez and Turner throwing strikes was huge.”
The Hyaks journey to Naselle for a doubleheader today.

Bobcats 3, Hawks 0
Aberdeen didn’t face a lot of pressure from River Ridge in this Evergreen 2A match at Stewart Field, thus the offense took full control of the contest.
Juan Oropeza scored twice in the second half, while Juanito Lopez got the scoring started in the 26th minute off a breakaway through ball by Victor Corona.
Oropeza took an assist from Lopez in the 52nd minute for a 2-0 lead, which, according to AHS head coach Larry Fleming, could have been bigger, except for missed chances at River Ridge’s net.
Oropeza ended the scoring on a long-range shot in the 76th minute. Sam Ruiz, Titus Phillips and Isaiah Contreras each had chances that nearly went in for the league-leading Bobcats (7-1, 9-1).
“It wasn’t our greatest performance, but we got the win and were able to experiment with a lot of players trying out multiple positions,” Fleming said.
Aberdeen was missing three key players — Cody Mishler, Dominic Shaffer and Blake Liscombe — due to illness and injury. Tony Jo was cited for his play in his first varsity start on defense.
In the junior varsity match, Aberdeen won, 4-1. Denis Calles, Victor Junco, Juan Venegas and Juan Renteria scored for AHS.
On Tuesday, Aberdeen travels to Tumwater.

ELMA — Kaelyn Walker led Montesano past Elma on a sunny but breezy Thursday at Oaksridge Golf Course in Elma.
Elma’s Lauryn Keating was the medalist with a 37. Walker shot a 45 for the Bulldogs.
“It was an outstanding round for Lauryn today under really breezy conditions,” said Bulldogs head coach Lloyd Aldrich.”Kaelyn struggled a little bit (for us) for the first time this season, but her teammates picked her up and we were able to come away with the win.”
Today, Montesano travels to the Grays Harbor Country Club to play Aberdeen. On Tuesday, Elma takes on Hoquiam at Highland Golf Course.
