The Knights exploded in the top half of the seventh, pushing seven runs across the plate to overcome an 8-5 deficit. Kingston led 8-2 after four innings, but Bremerton scratched and clawed, earning the always-elusive first win of the season.

Fastpitch

Lady Luck hasn’t been there for the BHS fastpitch team, at least so far. After early-season games against Shelton, Vashon and North Kitsap were cancelled for various reasons, the BHS fastpitch team finally had an opportunity to show their mettle in a Tuesday afternoon game against Port Angeles. But PA scored 12 runs in the second inning, sparking a huge offensive outburst, and cruised to an 18-0 victory. The Knights struggled to put the bat on the ball, ending the game without a hit.

The Knights hosted Port Townsend yesterday, but results were unavailable at press time. BHS will look to right the ship on the road against North Mason, hitting it off at 4 p.m. Monday.
