Falcons win at Granite Falls

"South Whidbey beat Granite Falls 8-2 in fastpitch action Friday to send themselves into the final days of the season in a huge battle for playoff position.The next four games are our crucial test, said coach Rene Christian, looking forward to the rest of the North Cascades Conference schedule.The test begins May 2 with a home game against Sultan. Friday the Falcons travel to Meridian, May 8 they host Mount Baker, and the regular season ends May 10 with a home game against Blaine.After last week's action South Whidbey sported a 7-4 league record and still had a realistic shot at third place, which is important for position in the bi-district tournament.The win against Granite Falls was largely thanks to Mary Murphy's hot bat. She belted two home runs at the Tigers' field, including a three-run blast in the seventh inning that sealed the game's outcome. She totaled 5 RBI for the day. Julie Robinson went 2-for-3 with 2 RBI, while Keasha Campbell collected hits in both official at-bats.On the mound, Nici Eaton did a nice job for five innings when Val Mock stepped in to finish off the Tigers.
