Crimson Tide softball turns tables on Jesuit

Glencoe junior Ashlynn Bailey blasted a ball over the Jesuit leftfielder Katie Corah's head to give her team a 4-3 lead in the sixth inning, and junior pitcher Isabel Womack made sure the lead stood by shutting out Jesuit in the final two stanzas to clinch the massive 4-3 win at Jesuit High School on Friday.

La Salle freshman Alexis Kemp silences Putnam softball attack 1-0

La Salle Prep pitcher Alexis Kemp showed up at Putnam High School on Friday with something other than her 'A' game.

She had her 'A-plus' game.

Kemp tossed a four-hit shutout with four walks and three strikeouts as the Falcons blanked the Northwest Oregon Conference-leading Kingsmen 1-0 and extended their longest winning streak of the season to four games.

Scappoose softball splits doubleheader with Banks

The new No. 2 Indians and third-ranked Braves are inseparable.

The third-ranked Tribe (12-2 overall, 5-1 Cowapa League) and fourth-ranked visiting Class 4A champion Banks (13-1, 5-1) split their league two-fer with home runs on Friday at Otto Petersen Elementary in Scappoose.

Lakeridge softball powers past Lake Oswego 11-1 on Friday

Until Friday, the Lakeridge softball team had battled through a very long — and unrewarding — week.

Playing day after day to make up for previously postponed games, the Pacers had lost four times in six days — until Friday

But on Friday, hosting crosstown rival Lake Oswego under sunny skies, Lakeridge hit its stride. The Pacers rallied from an early one-run deficit, knocked the ball all over their home park, played small ball effectively and raced to an 11-1, five-inning win over the Lakers.

Barlow softball rallies for 3-2 win over David Douglas

The Barlow softball team may have left nine runners stranded on Friday, but the Bruins were able to come through when it mattered most.

Down 2-1 in the top of the seventh inning, McKenzie Pierce drove a sharp single to center field, scoring two runs and putting Barlow (10-5 overall, 2-1 in Mt. Hood Conference play) up for good in its 3-2 victory over David Douglas (8-7, 1-3 MHC) on Friday afternoon.
