The Blaine softball team was able to come back and defeat Lynden Christian 5-2 at home in a Northwest Conference game Tuesday, March 26.
"It was the best game we have played all season," Blaine coach Alisa Burke said in a phone interview. "Ashley Bolick came out strong and shut down the middle and end part of their lineup. We played solid defense all around with no errors and were able to pick up a couple big outs in the outfield."
Bolick earned the win for Blaine and improved to 3-1. Hanna Kiele led the Borderites batting 2 for 3 with two runs and a double, and Lexi Greguski went 2 for 3 with two RBI.
The Lyncs were led by Kasey Luna, who batted 2 for 3 with a run.
"We came out swinging in the first two innings and jumped on them," Burke said. "I told them they needed to answer the call and it was all around a solid game."
