The Bainbridge Spartans flattened Mount Si 9-2 in girls fastpitch softball at home Friday.

It was a sweet win, considering the Wildcats from Snoqualmie had beaten Bainbridge 8-5 during the semifinals at the state championship tournament last year.

Late last week, Mount Si stepped out with a modest, 1-0 advantage in the first inning and went up 2-0 in the third.

A scoreless fourth inning came next, followed by a fantastic fifth for the Spartans.

The Bainbridge bats came alive, and the Spartans straddled the Wildcats with five runs.

Bainbridge scored four more in the bottom of the fifth to put the game out of reach for Mount Si.

Deahna King went 1-for-3 for Bainbridge. She smacked a home run and finished with two RBIs.

Kate Kinney went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI.

Natalie Allen finished with 2-for-4 batting and two RBIs. Fellow Spartan Riley Gregoire went 2-for-3.

Mount Si was led by Rachel Picchena, who went 3-for-4 with an RBI; Britney Stevens, who went 2-for-4; and Celine Fowler, who had a double and two RBIs during her four appearances at the plate.

Mount Si went through four pitchers. Rose Vogt came in for Paige Wetherbee in the second, then Tori Hellervik took the mound during the fifth inning, and Tamara Crowe finished.

Katie Raben picked up her second win of the season for the Spartans. She pitched seven innings, gave up seven hits and had six strikeouts.

Bainbridge improved its overall record to 4-0 with the win. The Spartans remain at 2-0 in the Metro League.

Bainbridge will face Metro foe Nathan Hale on Monday, March 25 at home. The game starts at 4 p.m.

The Spartans also play at home Tuesday, March 26 against Bishop Blanchet. That contest also starts at 4 p.m.
