With a bare-bones roster, South Whidbey softball fell 19-1 with a thud against the Cascade Conference-leading Cedarcrest squad Friday.

Cedarcrest jumped out to a dominant lead in the first inning, smashing pitches thrown by Falcon freshman Mackenzee Collins. The Red Wolves (12-2 conference, 13-3 overall) scored two runs and got four runners on base before having their first out.

South Whidbey loaded the bases in the bottom of the inning, but couldn’t secure a two-out hit. By the end of the inning, Cedarcrest led 7-0.

The Red Wolves continued their red-hot play in the second and third innings, while the Falcons struggled to stop the onslaught.

In the second inning, the Falcons had a chance to get the first two outs, but a fly ball to left field popped out of Rebekah Merrow’s glove. South Whidbey ended the run, but only after seven more runs crossed the plate.

The Red Wolves poured in four more runs in the third.

South Whidbey avoided the shutout after a fielder’s choice to the shortstop by junior Leah Merrow brought home Kacie Hanson, who led off with a triple to right field.
