Taft High juniors Emma Coulter and Hailee Danneker hit home runs and Coulter threw a four-hit shutout Tuesday in a 5-0 nonleague softball road win over Yamhill-Carlton.

“We played a great game today in rainy conditions,” Taft coach Sandy Stuart said. “After a slight rain delay part way through the first inning, we were able to control the game and play through the rest of the day.”

Danneker also doubled, singled and scored twice for the Tigers, while Coulter drove home two runs as Taft scored once in the first, twice in the third and once in the sixth and seventh innings.

“Our offense had some great hits and we scored throughout the game, which is important,” Stuart said. “Our defense also played well behind Emma, who pitched a great game.”

Coulter joined Danneker and freshman Addie Gates and sophomore Kyla Knott by scoring for the Tigers.

Taft improved to 6-2, while Yamhill-Carlton, also nicknamed the Tigers, fell to 4-9.

The Tigers return to action Thursday and Friday in 4:30 p.m. games against Santiam Christian and Dayton to start a five-game homestand before opening league play Tuesday, April 9, against Rainier.

“We are definitely getting more comfortable and settled in,” Stuart said.
