•Both the Cougars and Raiders won their early games of the Victory Pre-season Tournament Friday. Only one team was going to finish the day undefeated though.

That team was Spanish Springs after taking down cross-town rival Reed, 3-1, in the teams’ nightcap.

The Cougars scored two runs in the first and that was all pitcher Brette Lawrence needed as she allowed one unearned run on five hits, while striking out four and walking none for the complete game.

She also helped her cause at he plate, belting an RBI triple in the first and driving in a run with a single in the fifth for insurance.

Reed got its lone run in the bottom of the second when Andi Lee singled, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt and came home thanks to a Mary Dettling single.

Jacquelin Sertic went the distance for the Blue and Gold, but was saddled with the tough-luck loss. She scattered six hits, walked two, hit one batter and struck out seven.

Sertic also picked up the save in the early game when Reed downed Righetti 5-4, despite leading 5-0.

Makaela Moore had a two-run single in the first. Lindsay Yearman knocked in a pair in the third with a double, and Kiara Shirley’s RBI single in the fourth proved to be the game-winner.

Megan Dettling picked up the pitching win, allowing one earned run and two hits over 4 2-3 innings. She struck out eight, walked four and hit four others.

Spanish Springs was much more dominant in Friday’s first game, recording a 7-0 win over Oakmont.

Ally Batastini pitched a two-hitter for the Cougs. She struck out three and walked one.

Aubrene Blas and Sadye Roulund had two RBI apiece.

Both schools conclude the Sacramento-area tournament today with a couple games.
