Taylor Zodrow throws a strikeout early in the matchup against the Wildcats at Arlington High School on April 28.

The Arlington Eagles girls softball team welcomed the Oak Harbor Wildcats to their home field on April 28.

Oak Harbor got off to a strong start as they shut out the Eagles in the first inning and managed to put up one run early as well. With an early lead, the Wildcats looked confident as Arlington struck back in the second inning with two runs of their own. Neither team scored again until the fourth inning where they battled back and forth to tie the score up at 3-3.

Over the next three innings both teams played strong in the field, as neither team allowed a run which sent the game into extra innings. In the top of the eighth, the Eagles came out strong once again as they shut down the Wildcats. In addition, Arlington stepped on the gas to put up three runs and finish the game with a final score of 6-3.

"Our hitting wasn't as strong today so we weren't able to string some hits together early on. But, it was nice to see the girls keep working through it, keep hitting and then finally it came together in the end. So it's just one of those things that happens and they did a good job of staying positive," said Arlington Assistant Coach Ashleigh Beard.
