William Penn wins twice at home tourney



Friday’s second matchup was similar as Bellevue had several baserunners, but failed to bring them around with 11 left on base.
William Penn struck first with a two-run third inning. Malloree Grove managed a lead-off double and then tagged up and scored on a sacrifice fly by Brittanee Grove. Jessica Christensen also doubled and came around on a Bri Zerley single.
The Statesmen tacked on another run in the fourth with a two-out rally. Ashlee Dennis walked and scored on Steele’s single.
Christensen made it 4-0 in the fifth with a lead-off home run — her first of 2014. The Bruins (10-7) got one back in the top of the sixth, but the Statesmen put the game on ice with an RBI double by Malloree Grove and another two-run roundtripper off the bat of Brittanee Grove, who leads William Penn with five homers.
The Statesmen held a 10-6 edge in base knocks with Malloree Grove topping the list at 3-for-4 (two runs). Brittanee Grove was 2-for-3 (three RBI) and Christensen ended the game 2-for-4 (two runs).
Lunden Young struggled finding the strike zone with six walks, but was otherwise solid in moving to 2-3. The junior produced five strikeouts in the win.
