Sac fly gives Getchell softball 4-3 win over Everett

MARYSVILLE — A sacrifce fly by freshman Katie King in the bottom of the seventh gave the Marysville Getchell softball team a 4-3 victory over Everett in a Wesco 3A North matchup on Wednesday.

Chargers catcher Ashley Sievers started the rally with a triple, putting the winning run in scoring position with one out. King’s sacrifice fly scored the game-winner and helped the Chargers improve to 2-1 in league play.

Junior pitcher Kymber Devlin earned the victory on the mound for the Chargers, allowing just five hits over seven innings. The Chargers commited just one error compared to three for the Seagulls.

“We made the plays we had to make,” Marysville Getchell head coach Mike Moran said. “Our pitcher did a good job keeping them off balance, but our defense was the difference.”
