Woodcreek pitcher Jacy Boles out-dueled Rocklin’s Kendall Chambers thanks to the Timberwolves’ speed on the base paths and some mistakes on the Thunder’s part Wednesday.

Rocklin stranded six runners on base in the contest and just couldn’t seem to get its offense going. On the other hand, the Timberwolves seemed able to take advantage of every Thunder mistake to put runners in scoring position and then bring them home. Although Woodcreek did leave seven runners on base to Rocklin’s credit.

Woodcreek head coach Art Banks said that his club’s team speed helped make the difference in the ballgame.

The teams were evenly matched in many ways but the girls in blue were mistake-prone in the early innings. That allowed the T’wolves to mount a lead they would not surrender.

Woodcreek’s Amber Budmark, Christal Vierra and Frankie Orlando each had two hits in the contest. Vierra had a double as did Jenna Curtan.

Curtan also had two runs batted in and Jasmine Dwerlkotte, Orlando, Vierra, Amanda Horbasch and Budmark were all credited with an RBI apiece.

Rocklin’s Jaclyn Amader had two hits in the game and drove in two of Rocklin’s runs. Maddie Wuelfing had the Thunder’s only other hit. Amader, Wuelfing and Carli Cutler scored for the home club.

Chambers and Boles both recorded two strikeouts each.
