Prep softball: Lynnwood 8, Mountlake Terrace 5

Herald staff

LYNNWOOD — Katie Eno batted 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI and Jasmin Edwards added two hits and drove in three runs as Lynnwood defeated Mountlake Terrace 8-5 in a nonleague game on Tuesday afternoon.

For Edwards the quick start reflected how she performed last season as one of the top hitters in the Wesco 4A South.

“It was a perfect start for (Jasmin),” said Royals coach Matt Rockne. “She’s such a sparkplug for us … her speed and quickness, she’s an amazing lead-off hitter.”

Edwards assisted in the quick start for Lynnwood. The Royals jumped out to an early 4-1 lead, before the Hawks scored three runs in the top of the fifth inning to tie the score at 4-4. In the bottom half of the inning, Mountlake Terrace starting pitcher Rene Bos allowed the first two batters to get on base before Royals starting pitcher Erica Gott helped herself out by connecting on a double into the gap that scored two. Two batters later Eno would connect on a two-run blast to left field that would give Lynnwood the lead for good.

“We are a team that’s going to have a lot of contact hitting,” said Rockne. “We’re going to come close to having a lot of big innings. But we’re also a team that can lay bunts down if we need to.”
