South Whidbey softball trailed most of the game, rallied late, tied and then lost in the seventh inning against Archbishop Murphy.

The Falcons fell 6-5 in Everett on March 27 after the umpire called obstruction on senior Chloe Huffman in the top of the seventh, advancing the runner to home for the game-ending score. Falcon head coach Tim Collins said Kacie Hanson deflected a hit at third base and the ball rolled away. Huffman dove for the ball, which interfered with the runner moving from second to third.

Falcon freshman Mackenzee Collins pitched seven innings and gave up only one earned run on three hits and six walks. She tallied six strikeouts. The Falcons committed three errors, however, which led to five unearned runs.

South Whidbey was led by Hanson, who hit a double with a RBI. Sarah Merrow, a Falcon senior, also had a RBI.

The Falcons trailed after the second inning. Their first run came in the fourth to cut the lead to 2-1, and got a boost in the sixth inning with three more scores. Another run in the top of the seventh inning tied the game.
