Pacer softball searching for offense

Lakeridge drops a pair of low scoring games to Central Catholic and Sunset

The Lakeridge softball team was shut down by Central Catholic last Friday 4-1 but continues to make strides as league games approach.

Lakeridge got on the board first, taking a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the opening inning. Gracie Neville drew a walk to lead off the frame and was sacrificed over by Sara Nyland.

Then, with two outs, Chloe Mike doubled to drive in a run.

Central Catholic scored on an error in the second inning to tie the game but Kailey Krueger worked out of trouble to limit more damage.

The Rams took the lead on a steal of home in the third inning and Lakeridge struggled to put pressure on Central Catholic’s defense.

Mike reached base again but was quickly doubled off first base on an unfortunate line drive. In the bottom of the seventh, Taylor Reid and Kennedy Mann each singled but the Pacers couldn’t bring them home.

Lakeridge opens league play this week and will host Tualatin on Friday.
