T-Birds come back to top Bearcats in non-league matchup


The Tumwater softball team trailed from the start against W.F. West on Friday, but a four-run seventh propelled the Thunderbirds to a 7-6 win in a non-league contest.

W.F. West (10-4) scored three in the first and one in the second to take a 4-0 lead. Tumwater (11-2) was able to chip away with a run in the second, third, and sixth, but a two-run home run from Amayah Middleton pushed the Bearcats’ lead to 6-3 in the top of the seventh..

In the bottom half, Jamie Haase reached base with a one-out single, but the next batter struck out to leave the Bearcats one out away from a victory.

The next four T-Birds brought home runs with base hits, however, including a game-tying single from Ella Ferguson and a walk-off double by Zoe Fields.

The Bearcats and T-Birds will face off again in a league matchup on Monday at Recreation Park.
