The White River Hornets opened their playoff run with close victories Friday and Saturday and are now just one win away from a berth in the Class 2A state tournament.
The postseason debut was a 4-2 victory over Port Angeles and win No. 2 was a 2-1 thriller against Lindbergh that gave White River a subdistrict title.
The Hornets (19-3 overall) play again today, Wednesday, in a 7 p.m. matchup against either Kingston or Franklin Pierce. The winner-to-state contest will be at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds.
Saturday’s first run was delivered by courtesy runner Alec Anastasi, who scored on a ground ball that was misplayed. The second run came when Cole Johnson doubled, stole third and scored on a wild pitch.
Friday, Tanner Williams had two hits and scored twice to lead the offense, which started the game with a three-run first inning. Starting pitcher Ryan Bird went three innings and Zach Rohrbach tossed the final four to get the win.Contact Enumclaw Courier Herald Senior Writer, Editor Kevin Hanson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-802-8205.
