Island rival bests South Whidbey fastpitch

Coupeville softball got the best of its Whidbey Island rival South Whidbey on Tuesday.

And the Wolves did it in spectacular fashion.

South Whidbey held an 8-7 lead going into the bottom of the seventh inning. The Falcons were three outs from their first win of the season.

Coupeville scored the tying and winning runs on a two RBI double by McKayla Bailey. It gave the Wolves their first Cascade Conference win this season.

Falcon juniors Chantel Brown and Haley Viers went 3-for-5 and senior Ellie Greene knocked a triple.

South Whidbey is 0-3 in Cascade Conference games and overall this season. Other than a 16-10 loss to Lakewood, South Whidbey has lost its games by two runs or less.
