2A-11 softball: Northside Christian repeats as champion

After dominating district competition, Northside Christian continued its impressive run with another win over Shorecrest.

The Mustangs beat the Chargers 5-1 to repeat as Class 2A, District 11 champion. Northside beat Shorecrest three times this season.

"It gets harder every year," Mustangs coach John Anderson said. "Our slogan all year has been, 'Pray hard, work hard and all your dreams will come true.' "

Shorecrest took its only lead in the top of the first inning. Leadoff hitter Alexis Galinski doubled then scored on Molly Webber's single.

The Mustangs had two runs in the bottom half. Kayla Turner walked and moved to second on a groundout. She scored on a single by Tiffany Boyer. Lauren Tozour singled, and a Chargers error allowed Boyer to score.

Northside added a run in the fourth when Megan Tozour singled and scored on a single by Stephanie Bonalewicz.

"Our seventh-grader (Megan Tozour) came up and got a big hit," Anderson said. "It's never been about one person."

The Mustangs scored two more runs to put the game out of reach.

Pitcher Jessica Anderson struck out nine and allowed one run for the Mustangs.

"The girls wear this field out," Anderson said. "They have been fun to watch as a coach."

  2. Bucs top Jaguars behind strong first half



    There is a reason why the air in Tampa Bay is filled with playoff talk. If Thursday night's 12-8 Bucs preseason win over the Jaguars is any indication, it's also going to be filled with footballs thrown by quarterback Jameis Winston.

    Doug Martin gets the Bucs’ only touchdown  on a 2-yard run, squeaking past linebacker Telvin Smith in the first quarter. He has five carries for 30 yards.

    TORONTO — Two pitches RHP Chris Archer didn't execute are the ones that stood out Thursday as Josh Donaldson hit them out of the park. But the two solo home runs aside, Archer turned in a sterling outing that went atop the pile of good pitching the Rays keep wasting.
