EVERETT — Glacier Peak blasted four home runs but fell 11-6 to Eastlake in a winner-to-state Class 4A Wes-King Bi-District Tournament semifinal Wednesday night at Phil Johnson Ballfields.
The Wolves (17-7) erased a one-run deficit with a six-run sixth inning to secure a state berth and advance to Friday’s bi-district title game against Jackson, which beat Lake Stevens in the other semifinal.
Megan Cotton hit a three-run homer in the first inning to give Eastlake an early 3-0 lead.
The Grizzlies (17-5) responded with four home runs — two Emily Scott solo shots, a Kendall Curtis three-run homer and a Meleah Menchaca solo shot — to build a 6-3 lead.
But the Wolves answered with a pair of runs in the fifth, and then stormed ahead in the sixth to seize control.
Glacier Peak dropped to the bi-district loser’s bracket with the loss. The Grizzlies will face the winner of Wednesday’s late Redmond-Woodinville game in a winner-to-state, non-elimination contest Friday.
