Wolverine nine
nabs league win

Hailey slips by Filer in extra-innings

Lately, nice weather for softball has been as scarce as participants in the Witness Protection Program.

After getting rained out at home Saturday, Wood River (3-5, 1-2 SCIC) notched its first league win of the season at Filer Tuesday, 5-4 in extra-innings.

"We pulled one off," coach Chris Cey said.

The Wolverines fought back from a 4-2 deficit in the top of the seventh.

Ali Sherbine and Jamie Stone scored on an overthrow to first to tie the game.

Winning pitcher Chandin Persaud (2-2) retired the side in the bottom of the seventh to force extra innings.

With Persaud on second, Lauren Parsons belted a single to plate Persaud for what turned out to be the game-winning run.

Facing the Wildcats in the home eighth, a pumped-up Persaud struck out the side to lock up the win.

"It was a great performance," Cey said.

"Chandin had eight strikeouts up to the seventh and four in the last two innings. It is hard to play at that intensity the whole game and she did. It was awesome. She beared down and finished it out and it was impressive."

Offensively, Barbara Coleman had a great day at the plate, going 3-for-4 with a double. Emily Smith was 2-for-4 with a triple and run. Persaud scored twice.

In Cey’s words, Wood River is in for a "crazy" week.

The Wolverines host Preston Saturday, April 24, 11 a.m. at the South Valley Sports Complex. Twin Falls is in town on Monday, Kimberly on Tuesday and Filer on Thursday.

"It is going to be a tough week, but good," Cey said. "Our pitchers have raised their level of play and, hopefully, we will have the endurance we are going to need this week. Our district is totally up in the air. Everyone is pretty even."
