Playing as the visitors on their home diamond, the Mountlake Terrace Hawks scored three runs in their final at-bat Friday and defeated the Everett Seagulls 7-5 at Mountlake Terrace High School.
The game had originally been scheduled to be played at Everett Memorial Stadium but was moved to Mountlake Terrace due to the poor field conditions at the home of the Seagulls.
Junior catcher Dan Bingaman led the Hawks batting attack with two hits in three plate appearances and three RBI’s. Teammate Jonathan Kumai added two hits — one a double — and an RBI. The Hawks’ also were helped out by six base-on-balls issued by Everett pitchers Caden Lockhart, Gabe Maggio and Mason Tetrault.
Kendall Yackley was credited with the victory in relief by pitching four innings, giving up four hits, one earned run, one walk and two strikeouts.
In other Terrace results on Friday, the Hawk girls tennis team was shutout 7-0 for the second day in a row, this time by the Shorewood Thunderbirds in a Wesco League South Conference match contested at Mountlake Terrace High School.
The Hawk softball team made the long trip to Oak Harbor worthwhile with a 12-1 drubbing of the Wildcats in a game played at Oak Harbor High School.
