The Edmonds-Woodway Warriors survived a fast start by the Mountlake Terrace Hawks and came from behind to earn a 6-5 victory in a Wesco League South Conference softball rivalry game played Friday at Edmonds-Woodway High School.
Terrace jumped out to a 4-1 lead midway through the second inning but the Warriors responded with five unanswered runs to grab an advantage they would not yield.
Led by junior Kaitlyn Rust, E-W pounded out 13 hits in the contest. Rust went 3-for-4 at the plate with a double, a triple and three RBI. Mariah Woolery contributed by going 3-for-4 with a double. Mya Fegler also hit a double in a 2-for-3 performance.
