Touchet softball team splits with Colton


COLTON — In a tale of two games, Touchet and Colton split a Southeast 1B softball doubleheader here Saturday.

The Indians slugged 18 hits to take game one, 14-8. The Wildcats erupted for nine runs in the fourth during the nightcap to pull out a 15-1 win.

The Wildcats pulled to within 9-8 in the opener after six innings. The Indians responded as Morgan Caldwell scorched a bases-loaded double — her fourth hit of the game — to ignite a five-run Indian rally and ice the 14-8 win.

“Morgan’s double kind of broke their backs,” Indians coach Gary Dorman said. “We hadn’t played in two weeks and were coming off spring break, and I was not sure how we would respond. It was good to see 18 hits. You should win those games.”

The second game was a different story as Cierra Jo McKeown, McKayla Bishop and Jennifer Aceves were the only Indians to collect hits, and the Wildcats scored nine in the fourth to end this one via the 10-run rule.

“We just couldn’t get off the field in that fourth inning,” Dorman said.
