The Edmonds-Woodway softball team went 11 innings against Kamiak in a pitcher’s duel Friday, with the Warriors finally winning 1-0 via an international tiebreaker.
E-W’s Katelynn Lafferty and Kamiak’s Angie McFall pitched 11 complete innings before the Warriors scored the winning run.
With nine innings down and a scoreless game, Kamiak started the 10th inning to begin the tiebreaker. That means the Knights placed a runner at second base and then had three outs to try to score. They did not succeed, but neither did the Warriors.
The eleventh inning began the same way, but ended differently. The Knights, unable to score at their turn to bat, took the field. The Warriors placed Cassady Orstad at second base and Brooklynn Bailey was up to bat. The first pitch to her was a ball, and the second one she fouled off. The third one was also a ball, but the fourth she liked and she hit it hard — a line drive between the short stop and the third baseman out to left field that brought Orstad home.
E-W’s next game Monday at home against Jackson at 4 p.m.
