The Shoreline Community College Softball Team was swept on Saturday in a doubleheader at Shoreview Park by Douglas College from New Westminster, BC by the scores of 10-2 and 15-7.
In Game 1, SCC took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first, when Alia Kelly hit a 2 run homerun, but SCC was then called out for batting out of order and the 2-0 led went back to 0-0. SCC's Kelsie Mason pitched well the first four innings, holding Douglas to one run, but DC exploded in the 5th and 6th innings for 9 runs while SCC could only respond with 2 runs in the bottom of the 6th inning. The game was called to the 8 run run. Alexis Salcedo had 2 hits for SCC and Vallen Brewer had a RBI double in the game.
In Game 2, Douglas was a hitting machine, pounding out 19 hits in the
game. The game was close after 3 innings with SCC only trailing 4-2, but a 7 run 4th inning for Douglas put the game out of reach, but SCC did rally for 3 runs in the 5th and 2 runs in the 6th, but DC scored 4 runs themselves over those innings to win 15-7 by the 8 run rule again after 6 innings. Nicole Reyling and Vallen Brewer had 3 hits each for SCC and Reyling, Alia Kelly and Greta Coleman hit homeruns for SCC. Alia Kelly took the loss on the mound.
SCC fell to 10-20 overall and 4-10 in the region. Douglas moves to 17-4 and 12-2. SCC has lost 9 of its last 10 games.
