Wolves roll over Kentridge, remain unbeaten

Amanda Galla notched her first win of the year while Jievielyn Howard continued to carry a hot bat as the South Kitsap girls fastpitch team beat Kentridge 4-0 last Friday.

Galla, 1-0, tossed a complete game, striking out seven while allowing just three hits.

Howard drove a pair of runs while sophomore catcher Caty Lieseke collected two hits and drove in a run.

Leah Steven also had a hit and a RBI.

“(We had a) super defensive performance behind the pitching of Amanda,” South coach Kathy Ballew said. “Brittany Miller had a great game at second base, fielding everything, which was most of the plays, that came her way.”

The Wolves, now 4-0 on the year, opened Narrows League Bridge Division play late Monday against Port Angeles. The Wolves are at Shelton Wednesday before taking off for spring break.

• Soccer 1-1 heading into long week: The South Kitsap boys soccer team followed up a disappointing 1-0 loss to Central Kitsap to open the season with a resounding 3-1 win over Gig Harbor last week.

The Wolves, now 1-1 overall and in Narrows League Bridge Division play, jumped out to a quick 2-0 first-half lead on goal by Victor Kemel and Travis Gutierrez. After the Tides scored to make 2-1, Tyler Penn put the game away with a goal in the 77th minute.

“I can count on one hand just how many times we’ve beaten the Harbor,” coach Eric Bergeson said. “We haven’t gotten them too many times in my time here (eight years).”

The win gets the Wolves headed in the right direction with a tough week coming up. South played host to Port Angeles late Monday and entertains North Kitsap today at 5 p.m. South closes out play Friday at Bremerton before taking a week off for spring break.

• Hudson, Wolves stay perfect on the year: Matt Hudson tossed a one-hitter while Zach Jacob went 3-for-3 and drove in four runs Friday to help the South Kitsap baseball team improve to 3-0 on the season with a 10-0 win over Kent-Meridian.

Hudson struck out eight and walked four in moving to 2-0 on the year.

Jacob provided the Wolves with all the offense they would need with three hits and four runs batted in, including a game-ending two-run homer. Kyle Pease collected a pair of hits and also drove in a run.

South began Narrows League Bridge Division play Tuesday at Bremerton and will conclude the two-game season series with the Knights today at 3:45 p.m. at the SK field.

• SK girls golf falls to Gig Harbor: Kate Clark, Emma Mobley and Sara Mobley turned in their best varsity performance ever last week but it wasn’t enough to get past Gig Harbor, as the Tides claimed a 113-98 win in girls golf action.
