3/30/18 Centralia 7, Aberdeen 5 (Centralia, WA) Over the past 2 days the Aberdeen Bobcats had been outscored 20-0 in 2 10-0 losses to WF West and were looking to get their offense on track and against Centralia they did that but the Tigers made sure it wasn’t quite enough as every time they got close Centralia came up with a play to hold at bay.

3/30/18 Pierce CC 11, Centralia CC 0 (Centralia, WA) The Centralia Blazers got off to a solid start against the Raiders of Pierce College but the lack of a timely hit and untimely miscues by the defense plus too many walks by pitching were simply too much for the Blazers.  Riley Olson got the start and went 5 innings giving up just 1 run and after 5 it was 1-0 Pierce.

3/29/18 WF West 10, Aberdeen 0 (Chehalis, WA) The Aberdeen Bobcats were looking to score their 1st run against the Bearcats after losing to them on Wednesday 10-0 and Kylan Touch put them in position to do that in the top of the 1st inning when he led off with single and then stole 2nd base.
