The Lady Celts express keeps on rolling.
McNary won its 21st game in a row earlier today with a 9-3 thumping of Rex Putnam in second-round action from the Class 6A state playoffs.
Sophomore Hailey Decker clubbed two more home runs, or numbers three and four in two playoff games, while senior Hannah Bouska added a solo shot. Sophomore Olivia Yarbrough doubled in two runs.
Senior starting pitcher Erin Hento won for the 17th time in 18 decisions.
McNary trailed heading into the fifth inning.
This game was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but was rained out. It was re-scheduled for Willamette University before the Bearcats’ field was declared unplayable this morning. Ultimately, the game was played at the McNary softball diamond.
The Celts play the winner of Aloha-Tualatin in Friday’s quarterfinals.
