WASHINGTON TERRACE — The Bonneville High softball team is certainly not hurting for momentum as it heads into its first Region 5 game.
One day after defeating Weber, Bonneville obliterated Ogden. The Lakers forced the mercy rule before a full three innings were played and won 18-2 Wednesday.
“Our team really just meshes good together,” said Talia Afuvai, who ended the game with a two-run double in the bottom of the third.
“We’ve been playing together for a while so we always have each others' backs and we did awesome.”
Bonneville scored five runs in the bottom of the first and 11 in the second.
Ogden scored twice in the top of the third to force Bonneville to come to bat in the bottom half, but Afuvai came to the plate with the bases loaded and made sure the full third inning wouldn’t be played.
Bonneville's next game is Tuesday at East.
Afuvai and Katelyn Medina got Bonneville going in the bottom of the first with consecutive two-run singles. The Lakers also scored on a groundout in the inning.
In the second, Wendy Huynh hit a two-run double, Afuvai hit an RBI double and Medina hit an RBI single. The Lakers got seven more runs in the inning thanks to a pair of sacrifice flies, two errors, a bases-loaded walk and a wild pitch.
Bonneville pitcher Sadie Westmoreland worked out of trouble in the first two innings. In the first, she snared a line drive to end the inning after Ogden put runners on second and third.
In the second, she got a force out at home and a pop out to end the inning after Ogden loaded the bases.
“I just have faith in my team and have faith in myself that no matter what happens, we can get it done,” Westmoreland said. “We don’t have to stress about it because we all work good together and we can just get it done.”
