BAINBRIDGE - The Spartans rallied from a two-run deficit to overpower the Panthers of Seattle Prep 9-5 in girls fastpitch softball in a Metro League matchup at home April 10.

The victory kept Bainbridge perfect in Metro play at 5-0. The Spartans stood at 5-1 overall after the win.

Bainbridge jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning, but Seattle Prep evened the contest at 2-all in the top of the second after Abby Rockwell and Karina Diekema homered.

The Spartans jumped back in front after a one-run second inning, but the lead quickly evaporated in the third inning after Jenay McAuley smacked a homer and brought in three Panthers for a 5-3 lead.

Bainbridge closed the gap, however, with one run in the fourth inning and another in the fifth to tie the contest at 5-5 going into the sixth.

There, the Spartans held Prep scoreless and then piled on another four runs to ice the score at 9-5.

Alison Reichert notched the win for the Spartans from the mound; she pitched four innings and struck out five Prep batters.

Megan Spray led the Spartan offense; she went 2-for-2 at the plate and nearly peeled the leather off the ball with a home run and a double. She finished with two RBIs and two runs.

Riley Gregoire also punished the Panthers at the plate. She went 2-for-3 with a triple and two runs.

Deahna King went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs.
