Cascade falls 1 run short vs. Stanwood

EVERETT — To win in softball, a team needs both solid defense and offense.

Cascade successfully fielded the ball but couldn’t connect at bat in its 2-1 Wesco North loss to Stanwood on Thursday at Cascade High School.

“We just couldn’t get any offense going,” said Cascade coach Wendy Close. “We struck out eight times.”

Stanwood pitcher Brittany Jeans pitched a complete game.

Stanwood scored in the first inning on a wild pitch and Lyndsey Burrows’ (2-for-3) single in the fourth drove in Emily McCoy to give the Spartans a 2-0 lead.

Cascade responded in the sixth with a double by Morgan Klemm and two batters later, Breanne Mattson hit a single that allowed Klemm to bring the score within one. But that’s as close as the Bruins were able to come.

“We played great defense,” said Close. “Our bats just weren’t there tonight.”
