  • The girls of the Evans Motors acted like they had been there before after defeating House of Wings 8-2 for the Junior League title Tuesday night at the PSU Softball Complex, Field No. 2.
    “Good job,” Evans Motors coach Darin Kelley told the girls after the game. “Battled all season. Good job.”
    House of Wings took an early 1-0 lead but the rest of the game was controlled by Evans Motors.
    Evans Motors tied it up in the second. Kate Radell led off with a double but she was thrown out at third on a stolen base attempt. Mya McLeod reached on an infield single and worked her way around the bases for a tie score, coming home on a wild pitch. She stole second, the first of six for Evans Motors.
    The home team extended its lead to 8-1 the next three innings — three in the third, two in the fourth and two in the fifth.
    In the third, Jayce Huguenin hit a seemingly routine ball down the third base line but three errors later, Huguenin reached third base and Evans Motors was in business. Huguenin scored on a RBI sacrifice fly and Olivia Brynds and Radell connected on RBI singles, plating Sophia Piccini and Brynds respectively.
    Evans Motors scored its two in the fourth on walks, infield singles, stolen bases and wild pitches — Kamryn Kelley walked, stole a base and scored on a wild pitch and Zoey Battaglia singled, stole a base and scored on a wild pitch.
    Radell hit a RBI infield single and McLeod a RBI 4-3 groundout in the fifth.
    House of Wings managed its second run in the sixth on an Ella Battitori groundout, scoring C.J. Stockard after she led off the frame with a single.
