Fillies fly by Manson, lost double header to Tonasket


Citalay Guzman makes it safely home despite a tag attempt by Manson’s pitcher.

BRIDGEPORT – In a contrast of opponents, the Bridgeport Fillies scored wins over visiting Manson, 16-5 and 16-1, last Thursday, April 27, but lost two days later to Tonasket, 20-9 and 28-3 on Saturday, April 29.
The 14-0 Lady Trojans were looking for their first win of the season on the Fillies field but were unable to handle the pitches of senior Shaylee Polvos or the Bridgeport infield defense.
The young Bridgeport team, comprised of 14 players that are either freshmen or eighth graders, was no match for the older and more experienced Lady Tigers who have won 11 of their 17 league games so far this season and are currently in fourth place in the North Central Washington 2B League.
Bridgeport was scheduled to host Oroville in its final home game of the season last Tuesday, May 2, and honor its two graduating seniors and team captains, Polvos and Annabella Valdovinos. In their last meeting with the Lady Hornets on April 25, the Fillies came out on the short end of a 16-1 final score.
At 3-13 in league, Bridgeport will miss out on any post-season play but will have a more experienced core of players returning next year.
