COLTON - A two-out, four-run Colton Wildcat rally in the second inning doomed the Touchet Indians here Saturday afternoon. The Indians lost, 6-4, in a Class 1B seeding game going into the state semifinals Friday and Saturday in Yakima.
"The only real time they got to our pitcher, Nicole Brown, was in that second inning," Touchet coach Gary Dorman said. "We just couldn't get that third out in time."
The Indians played the Wildcats tough throughout.
In fact, the Indians had two runners in scoring position in the top of the seventh inning with no outs.
Still, Touchet was unable to score a fifth run and a tying sixth run in their last chance.
Brown led Touchet with two hits and pitched the complete game.
"It was a great well-played high school softball game," Dorman said. "There were no errors and each team played well."
