BELFAIR — The 1A Cowboys opened the season with a close loss to the 2A Bulldogs on Monday.
Chimacum got on the scoreboard first with a pair of runs in the top of the first inning, but its lead disappeared when North Mason plated four runs in the third inning.
The Cowboys even the score with two runs in the fourth, and took 5-4 lead with another run in the top of the fifth.
However, three scores by the Bulldogs in their half of the fifth gave them a 7-5 lead, and a run in the sixth inning rounded out the scoring.
Mallori Cossell had a strong game at the plate for Chimacum, going 2 for 4 with two doubles and an RBI. She also had a nice grab in centerfield.
Krista Hathaway added a double and drove in a run. Megan Dukek also had a double for the Cowboys.
Defensively, Erin Bainbridge made a trio of nice place at second base, and catcher Ashley Kelley threw out a base runner trying to steal a base.
Kimber Bolin starred for the Bulldogs on the mound and at the plate.
She pitched five innings and smacked a double and drove in a pair of runs.
Chimacum is off until next Wednesday when it plays at Eatonville.
