Rhilmina Sagapolutele plated Hensely in the 6th on a double that was lined into the left-center gap, giving the Tritons a 3-run cushion into the 7th. Sagapolutele fouled off 7 pitches in the at bat before delivering. Chantelle Shimabukuro was 2-for-3 in the game and had one double. Shimabukuro turned a nice unassisted double play in the 2nd, and center fielder Shanelle Lum made a great grab in center field to end the Royals' threat in the 4th.
Edmonds (40-8) wins their 14th in a row and gets defending NWAC champion North Idaho (36-9) next in a battle of the two unbeaten teams left. The Cardinals have a 15-game winning streak of their own headed into the showdown. They beat Walla Walla 4-0 to advance. The winner of tonight's 6 p.m. game will assure themselves a spot in the NWAC Championship Game on Monday.
