Vikings Glide Past Acorns to Set Up District Title Rematch with Comets


Never in doubt, the No. 1 Mossyrock softball team dominated No. 4 Oakville at home Monday in the 1B District 4 semifinals, 19-1, in three innings to advance to its second consecutive district title matchup with Naselle. 

The Vikings put up 18 runs in the first inning, and never looked back. Eleven Viking batters were walked, and 12 were hit by pitches to move most of the runs across. Hailey Brooks went 1 for 1 with a single, two walks, and three runs scored, and Lois Stone hit a three-run triple in the first inning. 

Delaney Marshall had the Vikings last and final hit, going 1 for 1 with a walk. 

The win sets up yet another matchup against the Comets on Wednesday in Montesano for the district title. The Vikings have beaten the Comets twice this season, but fell in the title game last year.
