Some high-school softball highlights from Wednesday

The game of the day lived up to its billing Wednesday as No. 5 Tahoma knocked off No. 3 Kentlake, 5-4, to pull into a first-place tie in the South Puget Sound League North Division. The two teams clash again today (Thursday) at 7 p.m. at Kentlake.

The Falcons led 5-0 through an inning and a half, but Tahoma rallied with two runs in the bottom of the second and tied it with three in the third, the final two scoring on a triple by pitcher Sammi Jimenez.

The Bears pushed the winning run across in the bottom of the seventh on a one-out sacrifice fly by Jordan Walley. Shelby Carter started the rally with a lead-off single.

Jimenez finished 2-for-4, while teammate Emily Miller was 3-for-4 with an RBI. For Kentlake, Erin Crowley went 3-for-4, scoring once, and Jessie Richardson was 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and one run scored.

Tahoma has now won 12 in a row since losing to Jefferson 1-0 in 10 innings. The Bears get their second shot at TJ on Friday. Kentlake started the week unbeaten, then lost to Auburn Riverside on Monday.

One note about today’s schedule: That big KingCo 4A game between No. 1 Woodinville and No. 8 Eastlake has been moved to Woodinville with a 6:30 p.m. start.
