Vikings get past Centennial to reach playoffs
Centennial's softball team used a two-out rally in the third inning to enjoy a brief lead only to see Forest Grove come back to claim a 10-7 win in Tuesday's 6A play-in qualifier.
Back-to-back RBI-singles by Cailin Warner and Katie Atkinson gave the Eagles their only lead at 3-2, but Forest Grove stormed back in its next at-bats to put four runs on the board. Emma Calouri's three-run double over the left fielder's head provided the go-ahead punch.
The Vikings put up another four-run spot in the sixth inning to put the game out of reach. Left field was again the destination for the big hit in the burst a two-run shot down the line by Abby Boozer.
Forest Grove (12-11) was the only road team to win in Tuesday's qualifier set and earns a spot into the 6A state playoffs which begin Monday.
