PREP ROUNDUP: East Jefferson baseball sweeps pair from Seattle Christian

Forks soccer shuts out Eatonville in crucial win

SEATAC — The East Jefferson baseball team had big bats and great pitching in an 11-1 and 14-6 doubleheader sweep this weekend over Seattle Christian.

Brody Moore pitched the first game. Coach Ben Lazano said he didn’t allow a hit in four innings and Seattle Christian’s run came on an error and was unearned. Chris Fair pitched the final inning to close the game out.

Both games went five innings since it was a doubleheader.

Fair also hit a total of four doubles in the two games, while Owen Thornton nearly hit an out-of-the park home run that ended up going for a double. Aaron Glanz hit a triple.

Thornton pitched to earn the victory in the 14-6 game, only allowing two earned runs, Lazano said. Evan Kraft came in the bottom of the fifth with Seattle Christian threatening with the bases loaded and he struck out a Warriors hitter to end the game.

Lazano said he let a number of freshmen play in this second game, and they did well.

Nathan Nisbet, one of those freshmen, hit a double and a single, while Hayden Montgomery had a couple of singles. Ryan Turner also had a hit and scored a run.

Lazano said Lizzie Storm also got in the game [East Jefferson has no softball program this season] and she was able to beat out the throw to first on a dropped third strike.

East Jefferson (4-10, 6-10) next plays at home against Klahowya (12-4, 14-4) in Chimacum at 4:30 p.m. today.

Boys soccer

Forks 4, Eatonville 0

EATONVILLE — The Forks boys soccer team put itself in position to finish third in the Pacific 2B/1A League with a much-needed 4-0 win over Eatonville this weekend.

“It was a good bounce-back win,” said coach Ismael Ramos. “We need to win out, really.”

Jesus Garcia-Dominguez scored a pair of goals, while Ethan Bello and Abraham Montealegre scored. Starting goalkeeper Juan Terrones is out for the year with a fractured thumb, so Hector Garcia-Dominguez played keeper and earned the shutout.

With the win, the Spartans are at 7-4-0 in league, a game ahead of Tenino at 6-6 and two games ahead of Ilwaco at 5-6.

Forks will play at Ilwaco at 6 p.m. Monday. The Spartans beat the Fishermen 3-1 earlier this season, but Ramos said Ilwaco has added a couple of players since that game.

“I expect that it will be very close,” Ramos said.

The Spartans finish their regular season at Raymond on Wednesday. Ramos said that game could end up being a forfeit because Raymond only has nine players available.

Elma at 13-0 is the league’s No. 1 seed while Montesano at 9-3 appears to be the No. 2 seed.
