Voodoo Dollz rebound with pair of wins
12U B state tournament
CLACKAMAS The Voodoo Dollz of Southeast Portland bounced back from a tough loss Saturday morning to earn a top-10 finish at the 12U B state softball tournament last weekend.
The Voodoo squad appeared on its way to victory when Ellie Greene led off the fourth inning by punching a single through the middle. Two batters later, Trinity Miller killed a bunt in front of the plate, and Greene scrambled all the way home from first base.
The Voodoo built a 4-1 lead before the Hurricanes rushed back to score nine runs, powered by a series of bunts, to end the game 12-4 on the mercy rule in the fifth inning.
The Voodoo bounced back with elimination-bracket wins over the Oregon Titans and Central Oregon to finish tied for ninth.
The Lower Columbia Devastation out of Rainier won all six of its games to claim the 12U title.
