Friday softball: Kenai sweeps, SoHi splits, Homer loses

Posted: May 18, 2012 - 10:56pm

The Kenai Central softball team swept a Northern Lights Conference doubleheader from visiting Houston on Friday.

The Kards improved to 5-4 in the league and 8-7 overall.

"We came out pretty flat, but we picked it up that second game," Kenai coach Mark King said.

Kenai took the first game 12-11. The game went four innings due to a time limit.

Havan Shaginoff pitched the first three innings and gave up seven runs — five earned — while striking out three. Briana King pitched the last inning and gave up four runs — two earned.

The Kards were behind by one run in the fourth inning and knew it would be the last inning due to a time limit. Kierra Isham had a single that scored two and won the game for Kenai.

Briana King was 2 for 3 with two RBIs, while Carly Norvelle was 3 for 3 with an inside-the-park home run, a double, three RBIs and three runs.

The Kards took the second game 16-5 in four innings due to the mercy rule.

King pitched the entire game, giving up five runs — three earned — while striking out four. She only gave up two hits.

She also was 2 for 3 at the plate with a double and two RBIs. Taylor Galley was 2 for 3 with two RBIs.

"Their pitchers were having a hard time finding the plate," Mark King said. "Our players were taking advantage of that whenever they could."
