Sagapolutele got the offense going again in the 4th when she ripped a leadoff double. Cacho-Kekahuna reached on an error, and Mckenzie Beavin plated Sagapolutele on a fielders choice to tie the game at 2-2. Edmonds pressed on, scoring 4 more runs in the frame. Ciena Kauhi had an RBI single and Chantelle Shimabukuro's single up the middle scored 2 more. Kauhi swiped 2 bags in the game.
The No. 3-seed Tritons (38-8) now move on to face Olympic College (21-21) in their next game at 6 p.m. Olympic upset No. 6-seed Big Bend 7-0 in their first game. The North Region foes met four times this year. Edmonds won three of those and took the last two at home on April 23.
In the first round of games, No. 7-seed Douglas survived against Wenatchee Valley, scoring 3 runs in the bottom of the 6th to secure the win. Spokane, the No. 15 seed, shocked No. 2 Mount Hood 11-7. For the second straight year, rain forced a one-day delay to the start of the tournament.
