Things are looking up for Fort Vancouver softball.
Tuesday, the Trappers scored their first fastpitch league win since 2008 over a team other than Hudson’s Bay.
And Fort did it in style, beating Washougal 23-8 in a 2A Greater St. Helens League game ended after three innings by mercy rule.
The game ended on a triple play. With the bases loaded, third baseman Annie Marichalar snagged a line drive, touched third for a force-out and threw to second base before the runner got back.
Marichalar went 2 for 3 with two RBI and a double. Allison Wilushewski went 2 for 2 with three RBI and three runs.
Fort took control early, scoring 13 runs in the first inning.
Chloe Johnson and Natalie Collins each went 2 for 2 with two RBI for Washougal.
