BAINBRIDGE - Fielding errors proved costly for Chief Sealth as Bainbridge built an early 6-0 advantage and marched on to win 10-0 in the Metro Tournament quarterfinals earlier this week.

The Seahawks finished with four errors in the contest, and which helped the Spartans pick up their first win of the tournament.

Bainbridge scored three runs in the first inning, then three more in the second, to build a 6-0 advantage over Chief Sealth.

The Spartans tacked on three more insurance runs in the fourth, then iced the score at 10-0 with another run in the bottom of the sixth inning.

Deahna King pitched a one-hitter for Bainbridge, and fanned four Seahawks during the first-round showdown.

Alison Reichert went 2-for-3 for the Spartans. She had two RBIs and scored a pair of runs.

Natalie Allen drilled a double and had two RBIs in 2-for-4 batting. She also scored a run.

King was consistent at the plate as well; she went 2-for-4 and had two RBIs.

Catie Muir also contributed to the Spartan offense. She was 1-for-2 with an RBI. She scored one run for BHS.

The win improved Bainbridge’s overall record to 13-4.
