The Wildcats (9-4, overall, 8-4 2B Pacific) won the opener in quick fashion, scoring nine runs in the first and six in the second to dispatch of the Warriors (0-9, 0-9) in three innings.

Six of Ocosta’s eight hits were for extra bases, led by sophomore standout Annika Hollingsworth, who went 3-for-3 with a double, a triple the three RBI.

Freshman phenom Jessie Gilbert went 2-for-2 with a double and three RBI.

Hollingsworth picked up the win, allowing no runs or hits with eight strikeouts in three innings pitched.

The second game was more of the same for Ocosta, with the offense hammering the ball and the defense holding Chief Leschi without a hit.

Hollingsworth (2-4, 2B, 3R, 4RBI), Trinity White (2-4, 2B, 4R, 3RBI) and Antolina Gamez (2-4, 2R, 2RBI) each had multi-hit games and multiple RBI as the Wildcats offense belted eight hits and took advantage of eight Chief Leschi errors.

Gilbert picked up the win, holding Chief Leschi without a hit while striking out 13.

The Warriors scored an unearned run in the bottom of the fifth inning on Ocosta’s only error of the game.
