Glacier Peak softball falls in a tight battle with Redmond

The Grizzlies get one more shot at making the state tournament when they face Bothell on Saturday.

MONROE — Glacier Peak couldn’t overcome a three-run inning from Redmond, in which the Mustangs brought nine hitters to the plate, and fell, 4-2, on Friday at Monroe High School in a winner-to-state 4A WesKing bi-district softball game.

The Grizzlies play Bothell at 11 a.m. at Inglemoor High School on Saturday in a loser-out, winner-to-state game.

“The message to my girls is that we’re not done,” Glacier Peak head coach Stefanie Celix said. “We’re going to come back tomorrow hungry and we’re going all the way.

“We played our game tonight. That was a great softball game. We’re going to come and play just as hard tomorrow.”

The Grizzlies jumped out ahead in the bottom of the fourth, as Phoebe Schultz flicked a RBI single to right to put Glacier Peak up 1-0.

But the Mustangs responded in a big way.

Kiki Milloy, the daughter of former Seahawks safety Lawyer Milloy, launched a moonshot homer over the center field fence to tie it. Later in the inning, freshman Ella Claus poked an RBI single past the right side of the infield to put Redmond up 3-1.

The Grizzlies responded in the bottom of the frame as Harlee Carpenter reached on a fielding error, allowing Haley Winckler to score, but Glacier Peak stranded runners at the corners with no outs.

Redmond tacked on an insurance run on Lindsay Tsuijkawa’s RBI single, and Milloy shut the door with a clean seventh to propel the Mustangs into state.
