Granite Falls scored seven runs in the seventh inning to take a 12-0 lead before ending the game with three up, three down against South Whidbey softball Tuesday.

The Tigers held a narrow 1-0 lead for much of the game before erupting in the final three frames. Granite Falls scored three runs in the fifth inning to take a 4-0 lead, while pitcher Laura Harding handled the Falcon batters. She allowed only two singles through six innings in the circle.

South Whidbey’s closest shot at a score came with a runner on third base in the first and second innings, but the Falcons couldn’t hit her home.

Five errors were committed by the Falcons. Mackenzee Collins, a freshman, gave up six hits, one walk and four runs and struck out five batters through five innings. She was relieved by freshman Bella Northup in the sixth inning. Kacie Hanson, a sophomore, closed the game in the seventh and allowed one walk and struck out one Tiger.
