Fourth Seeds Dominating Softball Championship Tourney -- three-time defending champion eliminated

Portland, Ore. - Stellar performances, great defensive play, close contests and a few surprises were hallmarks of Saturday's action at the softball championship tournament.

A pair of fourth seeds, Mt Hood of the South Region and Walla Walla from the East, are the lone survivors in the winner's bracket of the double elimination tourney.

Sophomore Lauren Hadenfeld pitched a perfect game on 11K's against the league's most potent offense as Mt Hood upset defending champion and top-ranked Lower Columbia in a 1-0 win to advance the Saints.

Hadenfeld has been throwing fire in all three of the Saints' sweeps. On Friday, she ripped North Region Champion Bellevue for 11 strikeouts in a 3-0 win and followed it with a 9K performance over five innings in a 7-0 win over Spokane.

Walla Walla also continued its own role as the other dark horse in the winner's bracket with a hard fought 1-0 win over East Region Co-Champion Wenatchee Valley. Sophomore All-American pitcher Makenzie Marchbanks threw a 6k, three-hitter in the shut out over the Knights.

In the one-lose side of the bracket, The SW Oregon Lakers and Olympic Rangers fought their way through to Sunday's action with three wins on Saturday to remain in the hunt for the title.

SW Oregon was led by freshman All-American pitcher Annaleisha Parsley in elimination wins over Everett 6-1 and Bellevue 2-1. The Bellevue win was a pitchers' duel as North Region Pitcher of the Year Michelle Ruby and Parsley threw shutouts through six innings. Bellevue finally notched a run in the seventh, but SW Oregon rallied for two in the bottom of the inning.

The Lakers then stunned three-time defending champion Lower Columbia the following game 8-3 to end the Red Devils hopes for a fourth straight title. Freshman all-star Chelsea Talbert kept the Red Devils in check with 6Ks over six innings and Parsley came in to close the door.

Olympic sophomore pitcher Erica Quint was just as lethal on the mound Saturday as she threw 24 strikeouts on just thirteen hits in three shut-outs to lead the Rangers to victories over Blue Mountain 2-0, Clackamas 4-0 and 2-0 over Wenatchee Valley in a ten inning affair.

Mt Hood and Walla Walla (GM 27) will square off Sunday in the winner's bracket while Olympic and SW Oregon (GM 28) battle to stay alive in the one-loss bracket. Both games are set for a 10am start. The loser of game 27 will face the winner of game 28 at 12:15pm Sunday.
