Tuesday night the Campo Verde Coyotes softball team travelled to San Tan Valley to take on the Poston Butte Broncos in a 5A non-conference matchup. It was expected to be a fierce pitchers’ duel between senior aces Myka Sutherlin (Campo) and Lindsey Lopez (Poston Butte), and their battle certainly did not disappoint. These two future Pacific Tiger teammates combined for a total of 23 Ks (Sutherlin 14, Lopez 9) with Sutherlin outlasting Lopez in a contest that went the distance. The Coyotes got on the board early in the 1st inning with a combination of a Bronco throwing error and heads up base running scoring Sutherlin all the way from 1st. The bats for both teams remained quiet until the 6th inning when four Coyote batters managed to get hits which included RBIs by Senior catcher Brandi Wilson and Freshman third baseman Jadyn Warren. The Coyotes also added two more insurance runs in the 7th inning with RBIs by Sutherlin and Senior second baseman Brenna Scudillari. The Coyote defense had a solid game behind Sutherlin with the only error coming on the last play of the game which eventually lead to the final out and sealed a Coyotes’ victory. The Coyotes will face conference rival Vista Grande on Thursday night as the Spartans make the trip up to Gilbert for a 6:00pm first pitch.
