South Whidbey scored single runs in each of the first three innings.

In the first, Bella Northrup doubled in Melody Wilkie, who reached on a fielder’s choice.

A couple of errors allowed Makenna Morley to score in the second inning.

Bekah Merrow reached on an error in the third and scored on Sophia Olsson’s double.

Northrup had a single to go along with her double, and Natalie Wilmoth added a single to the SW attack.

Wilkie, who struck out five, took the loss in the circle.
