Lakewood recovers against Steilacoom


Andrew Kneeland

Lakewood's Sam bats last Saturday against Steilacoom. The Cougars won, 12-3.

Their perfect record was tarnished, but the Cougars recovered nicely.

Lakewood High School's perfect six-game, season-opening winning streak was spoiled by Cedar Park Christian last week, but the Cougars rebounded with a huge 12-3 win over Steilacoom that showcased Lakewood's dominant pitching, lights-out defenders, and potent offense.

Mitchell Huglen whacked a ball over the centerfield fence to drive in two runs and cap a five-run first inning. Hunter Fritz was a perfect three-for-three from the batter's box on Saturday, driving in a team-best three runs. Lakewood combined to record 14 hits as a team.

On the mound, Kamerin Furseth pitched the distance, striking out six while only walking two batters over the course of six innings. He limited the visiting Sentinels to just three runs on six hits, allowed well after the Cougars had taken a commanding lead.

The big win comes after a disappointing series against league foe Cedar Park Christian, who topped the Cougars twice in the three days. At Lakewood last week the Cougars were shut out by a final score of 3-0, and in Cedar Park last weekend Lakewood was trounced as they fell by ten runs.

Even with the two league losses marring their record, Lakewood maintains a 4-2 tally among Cascade Conference competition and an overall record of 7-2.

Lakewood begins a two-game set against South Whidbey on April 8, and will play an Monday-Wednesday duo against Archbishop Murphy next week.
