Falcon fastpitch misses on senior night

South Whidbey softball had its shot to win its last home game of the year.

Instead, Archbishop Murphy rallied in the final inning with the go-ahead run. The Wildcats held the Falcons scoreless in their last frame to preserve the Cascade Conference finale victory.

See-sawing in the first five innings, Archbishop Murphy (8-9 Cascade Conference; 8-11 overall) seized the lead in the third with a five-run burst.

Trailing three scores, South Whidbey (3-15 Cascade Conference; 3-15 overall) tied in the sixth with three runs. Falcon senior Alex Kubeska and Mackenzie Hezel both pitched in the game, with Kubeska opening and closing the bout.

South Whidbey also lost its final Cascade Conference game of the season, 5-3, to Granite Falls on Thursday.

The Falcons took a 2-0 lead in the first inning on a two-run homer by Falcon senior Ellie Greene.

Granite Falls jumped ahead in the sixth with three runs.
