Bruins survive Gopher's rally
Mount Hood Conference
The Gresham softball team might have pulled off the comeback of the year in the Mt. Hood Conference with just one more out, but having just three, the Gophers rally fell just short.
Gresham scored four runs in the seventh to claw back to within one before the Barlow Bruins finally ended the inning and escaped with the 9-8 victory over their rivals.
Barlows offensive output wound up being much more necessary than it seemed initially. It got several key hits, each of which it needed in the end.
Center fielder Timber Swindell had the first such hit. With two outs in the bottom of the third, Swindell hit a shot to the gap in left-center for a three-run double.
In the fourth, a double by Jette and a single by Rian Snowadski fueled a three-run inning.
