Centennial falls in early hole against Wildcats


Wilsonville break out to a 6-0 lead in nonleague win over Eagles

by: THE OUTLOOK: DAVID BALL - Centennials Chelsey Miller tries to escape a rundown between second and third base during Fridays 6-1 loss to Wilsonville.

Centennial’s softball team slowed down the Wilsonville bats in the late innings Friday, but it wasn’t enough to spark a comeback during a 6-1 loss in nonleague play.

Wilsonville put up runs in three of the first four innings, building a 6-0 lead after Sarah Roberts connected on a laser shot down the third-base line in the fourth inning.

Centennial escaped the bases-loaded jam during the next at-bat when Madison Hamilton met a slow ground ball half-way down the third-base line and fired home to end the inning.

The Eagles broke up the shutout bid in the sixth inning when Natalie McDonald sent a single into right field that moved Miller to third base. Moments later, McDonald drew the attention of the Wilsonville defense in a rundown, allowing Miller to sprint home safely.
