THORNTON - The Skyview Wolverines are a scrappy softball squad and on Monday they showed it.
The Wolverines scored 14 straight runs to rally from a 12-2 deficit in the fifth inning to beat the Arvada Bulldogs 16-12.
“Our girls never gave up,” Skyview’s coach Lindsey Kesse said. “They stayed with it, got on base and were able to rally. Big win for us.”
Much of the damage was done in the fifth when the Wolverines scored 10 runs to tie the game.
Clarissa Hale, Jasmine Kimm, Selena Aguiniga, Debra Munoz-Lyon, Samantha Garcia, Biry Gonzales, Aspen Jacklin, Allison Pacheco, Aspen Jacklin and Mercedes Aguilar all scored in the inning.
Aguilar hit a 2-RBI double and Jacklin hit an RBI single.
The Wolverines continued to take advantage of Arvada’s mistakes in the sixth. Skyview scored four runs in the inning off of six walks.
Aguilar was walked to score Samantha Garcia to tie the game and Naya Montoya scored the go-ahead run when Jacklin was walked.
Aguilar, Jacklin, Montoya and Pacheco all scored for Skyview in the sixth.
Freshman Keyanna Varner earned the victory on the mound after striking two batters in the top of the seventh.
“I thought she did a great job on the mound,” Kesse said. “She stayed composed and did a good job late in the game.”
Early on it looked like Arvada was going to run away with the victory. The Bulldogs loaded the bases in both the first and second inning, but couldn’t take advantage and stranded six batters.
Justus Reid and Sadi Howes scored on passed balls to give Arvada a 2-run lead in the second inning. However, Hale hit an RBI double for Skyview to score Aguiniga to get the Wolverines on the scoreboard.
Arvada was able to score 10 runs over the course of the fourth and fifth inning, before the Wolverines rallied back.
Skyview improved to 7-4 after the victory, while Arvada dropped to 1-6.
