Navajo-Hopi Observer

The Estrella Foothills Lady Wolves defeated the Winslow Lady Bulldogs 12-4 at Rose Mofford Complex in Phoenix in the Arizona State Division III Softball Championship Tournament May 10.

The win improved Estrella Foothills' record to 32-2. Winslow's record dropped to 26-4 for the season. This was the second straight year Winslow finished the season second in the state.

Estrella Foothills scored three times in the top of the first inning to put the Lady Bulldogs in a hole early in the game. Alex Fedo and Ashley Godfrey walked, Dustie Durham singled and all three scored on a triple by Allison Montano to give the Lady Wolves a 3-0 lead.

Winslow left two runners on base in each of the first and second innings but could not score. A disastrous top of the fourth inning put the game virtually out of reach.

The Lady Wolves increased their lead to a commanding 10-0 and put the Lady Bulldogs in danger of losing the game at the end of the inning because of the 10-run mercy rule. Allison Montano led off the inning with a double, Devynn Osmanski drove her home on a single and Sarah Trammell walked. Winslow changed pitchers replacing Halle Hayes with Richelyn Villanueva.

Taylor Godfrey, Fedo and Ashley Godfrey singled, Savannah Osmanski doubled, Dustie Durham, Allison Montano and Carley Parfitt singled plating seven runs on nine hits as 12 Lady Wolves batted in the inning.

The Lady Bulldogs finally got on the scoreboard and kept the game going in the bottom of the fifth inning. Halle Hayes, Jaleisa Hayes and Taylor Baca singled cutting the lead to 10-1. The Lady Bulldogs cut further into the Estrella Foothills lead in the bottom of the sixth. Megan Lymer, Villanueva and Halle Hayes singled to cut the lead to 10-2 assuring that the game would not be shortened.

Estrella Foothills added two insurance runs in the top of the seventh inning for a commanding 12-2 lead. Trammell, Fedo and Ashley Godfrey singled to drive the runs home.

Winslow scored twice in the bottom of the seventh but it was too little too late. Renee Bollin and Taylor Baca singled and scored on a two out pinchhit single by Jolisa Jones.

Allison Montano Led the Lady Wolves at the plate with a four for four night including a double and a triple. Fedo and Trammell went two for three. Ashley Godfrey and Durham went two for four. Taylor Godfrey was two for five. Osmanski and Parfitt both went one for three. Osmanski hit one for four.

Baca led Winslow at the plate with a four for four night. Jones hit one for one. Halle Hayes hit three for four. Megan Lymer was two for four. Villanueva was one for three. Jaleisa Hayes, Bollin and Smith were one for four.

Durham worked the full seven innings for the win giving up four runs, three of which were earned on 14 hits and no walks while fanning just one. She kept Winslow from getting key hits as the Lady Bulldogs stranded 10 base runners.

Halle Hayes started and took the loss for Winslow. She gave up five runs in three and a third innings on four hits and four walks. Villanueva worked three and two thirds innings and gave up seven runs on 10 hits and no walks with two strikeouts. Most of the damage came when the first seven batters she faced in relief hit safely.

The Lady Bulldogs finished 26-4 under first year coach Kelly Fifelski. Most of the team returns next year.
