WashingtonÕs Huskies beat the Arroyo Dons 9-1 on May 21st to move on in North Coast Section play. Zac Wallace set the tone early in the game. After a slow start, he found his pitch and retired the following batters, going on to pitch a complete game; Wallace gave up just two hits.
The key to winning this game was whether the Huskies could get to Arroyo Dons starter Levi Noddin who had been have a great year. Washington did just that as they quickly opened up a 3-0 lead, scoring in the first inning and then two more in the second. With a great show of team hitting, the Huskies closed the door on the Dons with a 5-run fifth inning. Steven Kwan got a great two-run double to start the rally and got help from both Nick Lawrence and Kyle Williams who each had an RBI during the rally.
The Dons did not go down without a fight as Goby Medina got a walk in the fifth inning and then moved to third when Alex Denobriga doubled. Matt Zahn got Medina home with a Sacrifice fly, but it was just not enough to win.
Final score: Washington 9, Arroyo 1
