Beating anyone three times in a single season is tough, and after sweeping the regular season matchups, Mossyrock softball couldn’t win the third against rival Naselle in the 1B District 4 championship, 19-14.
The Vikings didn’t play their best in the field, committing seven errors and letting the Comets rack up 20 hits in the loss. The Vikings managed 10 hits, and put four runs on the board in the seventh inning to make it interesting, but couldn’t get stops when they needed to in the defeat.
The loss means Mossy will have to play a glue game on Saturday at Shelton High School against an opponent to be determined.
Erin Cournyer got the start in the circle and recorded all the outs for the Vikings, striking out three but walking eight, with eight earned runs. Jolee Hadaller hit 2 for 5 with two RBIs and Hailey Brooks went 2 for 2 with three runs scored and four walks drawn.
