FALLS CITY -- With an 8-4 win over Three Rivers last Tuesday, the Falls City Beaverette softball team locked up a District 31-1A championship, and will enjoy a first-round bye in the playoffs.

Falls City began district play on Feb. 26, and earned a crushing win over Yorktown, 16-0. The Beaverettes followed up the big win with two more double-digit victories, scoring a 17-0 win over Runge, and a 15-0 shutout of Pettus.

Kenedy played the Beaverettes a bit closer on March 8, but still fell by the score of 8-0. Woodsboro fell to Falls City 9-0, and the district-winning streak was five, all of which were shutouts. Things changed on March 20, however, as the Beaverettes traveled to Three Rivers.

The Bulldogs scored 2 runs in the third and 4 in the fifth inning to take a 6-0 lead, and the Beaverettes found themselves in a hole. Falls City got 1 run back in the top of the sixth inning, as Caitlin Jendrusch hit a 1-out single, and later scored on a fielder’s choice. After a three-up, three-down at-bat for the Bulldogs, Falls City went back to work in the top of the seventh, but needed 5 runs to keep the game going. Kayla Kotara bunted her way onto first base, and scored the Beaverettes’ second run of the game when Shaw Moy ripped a liner to left field. Moy then scored on a sharply hit ball by Tiffany Dziuk. The score was 6-3, but that was where things would end, as the Bulldogs retired the side without allowing another run.

The Beaverettes came back with a strong response to the loss, blanking Yorktown 16-0, and Runge and Pettus each by the score of 15-0. Kenedy made things closer at 5-2, and Woodsboro only lost 3-0, but the wins put Falls City and Three Rivers in a showdown for the district title.

Playing in Falls City, the Beaverettes knew a win would give them the title and a bye in the playoffs. It would also mean a measure of redemption for the team’s only district loss.

Three Rivers scored a run in the top of the first inning to take the early lead, but Falls City came right back to tie the game. Kotara reached first on a single to left, and advanced to second on a sharply hit ball by Jendrusch. Dziuk then singled to centerfield, scoring Kotara to make it a 1-1 game.

Neither team scored in the second inning, and Falls City held Three Rivers at bay in the top of the third, but the Beaverettes put a little rally together in the bottom of the frame. Kotara got things started with a bunt, and moved over to second on a single by Moy. Jendrusch hit the ball to left, and a couple of Bulldog errors helped Kotara and Moy across home plate. Jendrusch eventually scored as well, making it a 4-1 lead for the Beaverettes.

Three Rivers put together a little two-out rally in the top of the fifth, scoring a pair of runs to close the gap to 4-3. Then, in the top of the sixth, the Bulldogs scored the tying run.

Not willing to let this one slip away, the Beaverettes immediately went back to work in the bottom of the sixth. Morgan Burns reached base and ran over to second on a Bulldog error, and Taylor Moy got on base with a single to left. A couple of errors allowed Burns to score, and Taylor Moy later scored on another Bulldog throwing error. Shaw Moy singled to center to score Kotara, and Jendrusch got on base with an error. Dziuk singled to right to score Shaw Moy, and Jendrusch eventually got across home plate for the Beaverettes’ 4th run of the inning.

The Bulldogs looked like they were going to get a little something going again in the top of the seventh, as a runner reached first on a shot to left field. An error by the Beaverettes put runners at first and second with nobody out, and the Falls City faithful drew a deep breath. The next two batters popped out, though, and things began to look a bit brighter. The final out of the game came as a Bulldog batter drove the ball into left field. Three Rivers waved home a base runner, but Kotara fielded the ball and made a perfect throw to Jendrusch at home plate, ending the game with a tag.

“I am extremely proud of these girls, as they have gotten better every day and showed great composure the last two games,” said Head Coach Travis Ehrlich.

With the win, the Beaverettes finish their district schedule at 11-1, and are the 31-1A district champs. Falls City will enjoy a first-round bye, and will await their round-two opponent in the bi-district championship game.
