Nestucca faced Delphian on the softball diamond this afternoon, hoping to break their losing streak.
It didn't take long for the runs to begin racking up on the scoreboard. The Bobcats kept Delphian from scoring in the first inning, despite runners being on base, It was the bottom of the inning when Nestucca took advantage of Delphian. The Dragons were able to get the first out, but walked the next two runners, Olivia Leslie and Shamilee Chatelian. They each were able to advance on stolen bases. A double by Dakota Logan brought in the two runners, giving the Bobcats a 2-0 lead at the end of the 1st.
The top of the second was the closest Delphian got to scoring. A runner came around 3rd hoping to beat out the throw to home, but was tagged out for the inning's 3rd and final out. The bottom of the second proved to be the most productive for the Bobcats, scoring 5 runs.
Nestucca was able to hold Delphian to 0 runs the rest of the game, while gaining another 3 runs before the end of the game. Their 10-0 win over Delphian is their first win in the league.
