ANACORTES — In the second matchup of the two teams in three days, the Anacortes High School softball team got a measure of revenge against the Mount Vernon Bulldogs.

After Mount Vernon's 2-0 win in the season opener for both teams Monday, the Seahawks stormed back for a 10-7 win Wednesday.

Riley Pirkle struck out eight Bulldogs on her way to the win. Olivia Collins struck out 10 Anacortes batters.

"The two teams went from a pitching duel Monday to not quite a slugfest, but a different ballgame. Both teams' hitters made adjustments to put the ball in play more," Seahawks coach Tom Swapp said.

Pirkle hit a two-run double for the Seahawks (1-1), and Abbie Goodwin had a two-run single.

Ashlyn Stroud was 2-for-4 with three RBI and Macie Logsdon was 2-for-4 with two RBI for Mount Vernon (1-1). Sidnee Schuerman and Sydney Snider had one RBI each.
