Bonney Lake, just a third-year school, is back in the 3A state softball semifinals for the second straight year. The Panthers took a 2-0 lead over Newport into the seventh inning, then held on for a 2-1 victory as the Knights left runners at second and third.
They play unbeaten TImberline tomorrow at 9 a.m. Kennedy and Everett play in the other 3A semi, also at 9 a.m., as earlier noted.
Check back around noon tomorrow to find out who plays for the title. I’ll have the 4A pairing as well.
