Seaside softball falls to Scappoose

Monday at Broadway Field was the definition of turbulent conditions. Fly balls were dying, and the ball had to be wiped down before most pitches due to the rain and cold.

The game between Seaside and Scappoose High School softball teams was a test of which team would handle the elements better. Scappoose passed this test with flying colors. The Scappoose Indians scored a 15-0 victory against Seaside.

Scappoose’s Saige Casey pitched a complete game, allowing just one walk in her three innings of work. According to the rules, if a team is ahead by 15 runs through three innings, the game will be over. The Indians scored six runs in the first inning and nine runs in the third, which included a grand slam.
