EVERETT – The Edmonds-Woodway Warriors won Round 1 in the battle for second place in the Wesco South with a convincing 7-0 victory over the Kamiak Knights Saturday at Kamiak High School.
Senior Kellan Mackey pitched six strong innings, striking out six and teammate Drew Lockhart batted 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI for the Warriors.
“Kellen did a nice job. He struggled early with walks then settled down and got into a groove,” Edmonds-Woodway coach Joe Webster said.
Mackey (4-0) allowed just two hits in his six innings of work.
“He’s had six good starts and has been real consistent for us, keeping us in ballgames,” Webster added.
The Warriors (10-3 in league, 12-3 overall) and Knights (9-4, 9-6) came into the game tied for the second best record in the division, three games behind South-leading Jackson.
The Warriors have a tough stretch of games to end the season, including a game at home against Kamiak on Tuesday and finish off with Mountlake Terrace (9-4 in the Wesco South), another team fighting for second place, on May 1 and 2.
“Kamiak’s a good team. I’m real happy with how we played today. I’m sure it will be a much different game on Tuesday,” said Webster.
