Watauga beat the North Davie softball team 9-2 in the season opener last week.

Jaynie Patton, Jayda Steele, Calloway Spillman and Kinley Pasauet all had one hit apiece, with Steele smacking a two-run double in the fourth inning to chop the Wildcats’ deficit to 4-2.

Landry Parsons took the loss despite only allowing four hits and striking out nine.

Coach George Newman said the play of the game was a throw from left fielder Hayden Gavura to catcher Spillman, who applied the tag in time and held on even though she was blasted by the runner.
