EVERETT -- In the previous Wesco 3A softball game meeting between Everett and Lynnwood, the Royals found themselves down 13-0, but scored five runs in the sixth inning to prevent a mercy rule win by the Seagulls.
Those seemingly meaningless runs proved to be enormously influential in the rematch as the Royals exacted their revenge, knocking off previously undefeated Everett 9-7 on Monday.
"We talked about that (before the game), it was huge to score five," Lynnwood head coach Matt Rockne said. "We had every reason to call it a game, but we didn't. Going forward, (we gained) confidence from that and we wanted to show we could play a full seven innings."
Erica Gott hit a two-run homer in the first and Meagan Crabtree added a solo shot in the fifth, but it was Royals' leadoff hitter Jasmin Edwards who sparked the offense, finishing 2-for-4 with three runs scored.
"(Edwards) is a smart hitter, who knows the value of being on base and has a lot of speed," said Rockne.
The Seagulls showed their resiliance, coming back from 2-0 and 7-4 deficits to tie the game on a run in the sixth. Kayla Deditius led the Everett offense with two hits and three RBI. But Lynnwood scored twice in the seventh, with Edwards scoring the go-ahead run from first on a Desiree Graham hit and miscue by the Everett defense.
Nursing a two-run lead and facing the bottom of the Everett lineup in the seventh, Gott retired the side in order, ending the game on a strikeout.
