Indians score early, roll to 6-0 win over Bulldogs

Touchet's softball team scores twice in the first and three times in the second against Dayton Tuesday.


DAYTON - Early scores by Touchet closed out a non-conference softball game with Dayton early here on Tuesday.

The Indians built up a 5-0 lead by the second inning, and Bulldog errors didn't help Dayton erase the deficit as Touchet won, 6-0.

"We just had too many errors," said Dayton head coach Terry Robins. "It's pretty simple. ... When you make four or five errors right off the bat, it's not going to help you. I think if it weren't for those it would've been a different game."

Pitching for Dayton was freshman Samantha Harting, replaced in the final inning by Claire Lyman.

"We're still learning," Robins said. "Winning and losing aren't big for us right now. We're still working on finding our karma."

Dayton is 1-3 this season, all non-conference games.

Touchet's karma is growing. The Indians are 4-0 in non-conference play.

"It was a good game," Touchet head coach Gary Dorman said. "Megan (Reed) pitched a good game for us. It looked like she only allowed a few hits, and this was her first varsity start."

Reed pitched the first five inning, allowing the Bulldogs' only hit in the first inning.

Touchet's victory came early, with five runs in the first two innings and the final in the fourth.

Zoe Weaver stole home and Cheyenne Kessler was moved in on a hit by Reed in the first inning.

Kessler ran in Alex Sasser early in the second, and a smash by Taylor Jasperson with two outs in the second ran in Weaver and Kessler for a double.

Touchet's final score of the game came on a hit by Elida Rodriguez, when Jasperson came home.

Bulldog pitcher Harting settled her nerves after the second inning, but the damage was done.

"We're still learning to play together," Robins said. "Our youth is gaining experience right now."

Touchet plays Colton at home to open league play Friday.

Dayton travels to Asotin for a league doubleheader on Saturday.
