Falcons drop finale; head to playoffs / Baseball

A five-run fifth inning helped visiting Granite Falls come from behind and defeat the South Whidbey High School baseball team 8-4 Tuesday, May 1, in the regular-season finale.

The game had no bearing on South Whidbey’s playoff picture, and the Falcons (6-9, 9-11) play University Prep in the eight-team, bi-district tournament at noon Saturday, May 5, at Sehome High School.

If the Falcons win, they will play the winner of Meridian/King’s at 4 p.m. Saturday at Bellingham’s Joe Martin Stadium. If South Whidbey loses, it will face the Meridian/King’s loser at 4 at Sehome.

The tournament continues Saturday, May 12; three teams qualify for the state tournament.

Granite Falls 8, South Whidbey 4

The Falcons went up 3-0, then the Tigers took the lead for good with five runs in the fifth inning.

Taylor Brown had two hits, including a double, and Nick Young singled twice and drove in a run for South Whidbey.
