E-W downs MP to reach 3A state softball tournament

The Warriors jump out to a big lead and hang on the beat the Tomahawks 9-6.

EVERETT — Another year, another state-tournament berth for the Edmonds-Woodway softball team.

The Warriors jumped out to a big lead early, scoring the game’s first nine runs, and needed just about every bit of it as they held on for a 9-6 win over Marysville Pilchuck in a winner-to-state, loser-out Class 3A District 1 Tournament game Thursday at Phil Johnson Ballfields.

Reese Riggins hit a solo home run in the second inning and Sofia Chamorro blasted a two-run homer to center field in the fourth to help Edmonds-Woodway build its lead.

The Tomahawks started to chip away late, scoring three runs in the fifth, two in the sixth and another in the seventh to cut their deficit to 9-6, but Warriors pitcher Annika Forseth struck out the final two batters of the game with runners on second and third and the tying run at the plate to secure the win.

Edmonds-Woodway (11-13) moved on to face Everett in a third-place matchup, where it lost 8-0 in five innings in a rain-shortened game.

The loss ended the season for Marysville Pilchuck (12-11).
