Dacus, Hawkins Homer in Bearcats Win Over Warriors


Running through league teams for the third time this season, the W.F. West softball team opened the third time through in style, defeating Rochester on the road, 10-3. 

Kamy Dacus and Savannah Hawkins both slammed home runs, with Dacus batting 3 for 4 with two runs scored and two RBIs and Hawkins adding a 2 for 4 line with four RBIs. 

Dacus also started in the circle, pitching a complete game with three earned runs on seven hits with one walk and seven strikeouts. 

On the other side, the Warriors started Sadie Knutson, who had a strong start, but was pulled in the fourth inning after allowing 11 hits and seven earned runs with one strikeout. Lakota Escott relieved Knutson to throw 3 ⅓ innings with two earned runs on four hits with three strikeouts. 

Macey Fluetsch led the Warriors at the plate with a 2 for 3 line with a run and two RBIs. 

W.F. West will take on Tumwater in a rubber match on Monday for its next game, hoping to stay alive for a league title, while the Warriors take on Black Hills at home.
