Blazers Win One, Set to Finish Postponed Game 2 With Cougars


Centralia College softball won the front end of a road doubleheader against Clackamas and was unable to finish the nightcap that was postponed due to darkness on Wednesday.

The Trailblazers won Game 1, 4-3, with Rochester alum Kiyah Kennedy earning the win on the mound while tossing a complete game.

“She threw very well,” Centralia College coach Payton Pocklington said. “We did a phenomenal job playing our game. We played hard every inning and we had multiple double plays and several timely hits.”

Pocklington also praised Nikole Schock for her hitting performance.

In Game 2, the Blazers and Cougars battled to a 13-13 tie in the top of the sixth inning until it became too dark to play. The two squads plan to pick that game back up where they left off in two weeks when Clackamas travels to Centralia.

“Now that conference has kicked off, we are doing a great job finding our groove and playing our game,” Pocklington said. “I am very proud of the girls on my team, and I am very lucky to be their coach.”

Centralia College (5-8, 4-3 West Region) next hosts Mt. Hood at noon and 2 p.m. on Saturday.
