Softball North Kitsap 4, Sequim 0

SEQUIM — The Sequim softball team played undefeated North Kitsap tough, but couldn’t generate a lot of offense against the Vikings’ Cerenity Fake, who pitched a complete-game shutout in a 4-0 win.

It was the Wolves’ first Olympic League loss. North Kitsap came into Tuesday’s game 5-0 and averaging 15 runs a game.

Sequim’s Lainey Vig kept the Vikings in check for most of the game. She went six innings and allowing seven hits and two earned runs while striking out three.

The Wolves had four hits. Vig, Mia Pozernick, Lexi King and Angel Wagner all had singles.

Sequim (2-1, 2-2) next plays at home at 4:15 p.m. today against North Mason (1-1, 2-1).

In other softball games Tuesday, Forks swept Chief Leschi 26-0 and 22-3 to improve to 3-1 in Pacific 2B League play and 5-3 overall.

A softball game at Olympic High School between Port Angeles and Olympic was suspended in the bottom of the third inning and the score tied 2-2 “due to an incident involving the Olympic coaches and spectators. The umpires left the field, ultimately ending the game,” according to coach Morgan Worthington.

The Olympic League athletic directors, umpire association and potentially the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association are expected to make a determination on how to proceed with this game.

NOTE TO EDS: I'm guessing this is Flodstrom because that how No. 12 was listed on MaxPreps. The lineup card and the other online rosters list him as No. 15 and totally omits No. 12. Any additional guidance is welcome.
