ELMA — Brooke Goldsmith pitched a five-inning no-hitter as Elma swept past Rainier, 10-0 and 17-1, in an Evergreen 1A League doubleheader Monday at Eagle Field.
Goldsmith struck out 10 of the 16 batters she faced in the opening game.
“She was on tonight,” Eagle coach Janene Todd said.
Goldsmith also tripled in that game, as did teammates Sydney and Karli Smythe.
Ashley Cooper tossed a two-hitter in the second game, shortened to three innings by the 15-run mercy rule. Peyton Elliott led the Eagle attack with three hits and four RBIs. Goldsmith also had three hits in this game. Short-handed Rainier again had only nine players on hand.
Todd noted improved control by both Goldsmith and Cooper.
“It was good for both of our pitchers to live in the strike zone and not be out of the strike zone a lot (like we have been),” the Elma coach said.
The Eagles (3-3, 4-5) host North Mason in a makeup game today.

WISHKAH — Teagan Louthan pitched a five-inning no-hitter and homered twice as Wishkah swept Oakville, 12-0 and 7-1, in a non-league doubleheader Monday at Wishkah.
Louthan’s no-hitter came in the opening game, shortened to five innings by the 10-run mercy rule. She wound up striking out 26 in 12 innings of the doubleheader.
The Wishkah senior led off the opening game with a home run and then capped her day with a three-run homer in the sixth inning of the nightcap.
The Loggerettes (9-1) used aggressive baserunning to capitalize on walks and passed balls, but coach Tove Reibel said her team needs to improve at the plate.
“We’re working the bases fine and (Teagan) is doing a great job of pitching, but we’ve got to get our bats going,” Reibel said.

Elma sweeps Mounties
ELMA — Beginning a five-game week through the Evergreen 1A, Elma managed its pitchers and found plenty of offense to support the defense en route to a doubleheader sweep of Rainier, 11-1 and 10-3, at Eagle Field on Monday.
Five different pitchers got into the action in both games, seven overall, to combine for just nine hits allowed to the Mounties. Behind the pitchers, the Eagles committed just one error in the twin bill in the field and 23 hits overall at the plate.
“I was really pleased with our defense — only one error in two games,” Elma head coach Scott Rowland said. “I was pleased that our throwers threw well. We threw a lot of them and they went out and threw strikes. We have five games this week. It is tough on a pitching staff. If our offense can generate runs and the defense plays like it did today, we should be OK.”
Ricky Escalante led the Elma offense with five hits in seven at-bats and five RBI. Seth Osgood added four hits, including a double in the first game and two triples in the nightcap, and one RBI. Rowland cited both players for their day at the plate.
Rio Ortega slugged a two-run home run in the sixth inning of the nightcap to end the day’s scoring. Austin Neary, in just three innings of work, and Nick Camenzind, also in three innings, picked up the win on the mound.
Today, Elma (7-5, 9-5) hosts Hoquiam in a pivotal league matchup.

Navigators 8, Wildcats 2

The game was tied at 2-2 until the Navigators scored two runs apiece in each of the final three frames.
Caleb Tackett drove in both Ocosta runs, with a double and a fielder’s choice. He added another double that didn’t figure in the scoring.
Peter Samuelson went 3-for-3 for the Wildcats (1-5 in league).
“We had our opportunities to put runs on the board,” Ocosta coach Ben Quinby summarized. “But opportunities are just opportunities. You’ve got to take advantage of them sometime.”

Eagles 2, Warriors 0
ROCHESTER — Scoring both its goals in the first five minutes, Elma maintained sole possession of the Evergreen 1A League lead by edging Rochester on Monday on the Warriors’ field.
With the match only two minutes old, Elma’s Steven Persell drove from the left wing to about six yards out. The shot pinballed off the feet of Persell, a Rochester defender and the goalkeeper before entering the net. Eagle coaches credited it to Persell, while the Rochester coaches considered it an own goal.
There was no doubt, however, that the second marker was an own goal. A Warrior defender accidentally headed a Donovan Bieker throw-in past his own goalkeeper.
The Eagles (7-2, 8-3) had chances to add to their total, particularly on a Persell cross in the second half that barely flicked off the feet of teammate Julian Hernandez.
Elma goalkeeper Tyler Davis made a couple of diving saves to deny the Warriors in the first half. Defender Allen Cedillo cleared the second one away from the net.
Cedillo was credited with a strong overall performance.
“We would have liked to have gotten another goal or two,” Elma coach Carson Seaberg said. “But to go down to Rochester and get a result like that on the road, we’re really pleased.
The Eagles host Hoquiam in a league showdown Wednesday.
Beavers 0 (3), Bulldogs 0 (2)
MONTESANO — Host Montesano dominated play in the second half and overtime, but couldn’t convert as visiting Tenino outlasted the Bulldogs to win in a penalty-kick shootout in this Evergreen 1A match at Rottle Field on Monday.
Nolan Walker and Nick Prosch converted their spot kicks after the Bulldogs (5-4, 5-6) missed their first three in the shootout. The Beavers missed two of their first four before knocking in the final penalty kick to win.
“They’ve been on the wrong end of those shootouts,” Montesano head coach Mike Malpass said of Tenino. “To be fair, Tenino hit the crossbar and (Monte goalkeeper Jeff) Varness made a great save. I told the players at halftime that we were lucky to be at 0-0. The guys turned it around in the second half and we didn’t have any issues, including the extra 10 minutes.”
On Friday, Montesano hits the road to take on Hoquiam.
