After losing back-to-back league games for the first time this season, Edmonds-Woodway rebounded with one of its best offensive performance of the season.

The Warriors pounded out 15 hits in a 15-3 rout over Stanwood in a Wesco 3A softball game Tuesday, April 25, at Stanwood High School.

Senior Jackie Lovelace was 4-for-5 with three runs and junior Mariah Woolery was 2-for-4 with 2 RBI. Woolery allowed five hits and struck out seven in a complete-game effort. Gracie Boyd hit a double and drove in 2 runs and Sammy Dickinson had a triple and 2 RBI.

The Warriors scored 3 runs in the first and second innings and then added 4 in the fifth and 5 in the seventh.

“We got back to hitting in a big way,” Edmonds-Woodway coach Mike Venable said. “Mariah pitched well. So it all came together tonight.”

Edmonds-Woodway fell 7-3 to Marysville-Pilchuck on Thursday, April 20, and lost to Snohomish 8-2 on Friday, April 21.

The Warriors (9-3 in the league, 9-5 overall), currently are tied with Meadowdale (9-3, 10-4) for second place in the league, face first place Mountlake Terrace (9-2, 10-3) at 4 p.m., Friday, April 28 at Mountlake Terrace High School.

Edmonds-Woodway prevailed 12-10 last month in a game where both teams had sub-par defensive play, Venable said.

“It was a typical early season game,” he said. “I look for a much lower scoring game. I think both defenses have improved quite a bit. It should be a good game with evenly matched teams.

“I think our team is coming together,” Venable added. “Today was a good example. We’re hoping we can keep that up that Friday against Mountlake Terrace.”
