An early-season battle of the bridge – baseball style – resulted in a 3-1 victory by Enumclaw High over neighboring White River.

The game was played under cloudy skies Thursday afternoon on the White River campus.

Enumclaw reached the scoreboard first, plating a run in the top of the second inning courtesy of a squeeze bunt. Two more runs came in the fifth frame, the first when Jordan Misonsol walked, advanced on an error and scored on a hit by Cooper Wicks. Later in the inning, Carson Erwin scored from third while a teammate was in a rundown between first and second.

White River made things interesting in the late going. The team’s lone run came in the sixth when Braden Field singled and scored on a Mitchell Webster triple. White River threatened in the bottom of the seventh when Riley Johnson was hit by a pitch and Hunter Ford reached base on an error. A decisive play came when Colton Swenson grounded into a force play at third and Ford was caught attempting to reach third.

White River coach Mike Williams was philosophical regarding the loss. “The outcome was what should have happened,” he said. “On paper they are a very good 3A program and we are a good 2A team, the 3A should win.”

Whenever the Plateau teams meet emotions run just a bit hotter than usual, Williams said, but added that he managed the game like any other nonleague encounter. He used four pitchers and used 14 players in multiple positions.
