After crushing Granite Falls 8-0 on Monday, the Hawks lost to the Lynnwood Royals, 7-5  Tuesday at MTHS.

Going into the bottom of the 2nd inning, Lynnwood had a 3-0 lead on the Hawks when Terrace junior Hannah Wilcox scored to shorten the Royals’ lead on the Hawks.

After another Royals’ score in the 3rd, Hawks sophomore Ashley Fitzgerald hit a pop fly to right center, scoring another run to make it 4-2. The Hawks would score twice more including the tying run by senior Maddy Kristjanson to knot things up at 4-4.

The Royals came back in the 4th with a ground rule double and then a home run to make it 7-4, top of 4th.

The Hawks would fight back and score in the bottom of the 7th making it 7-5, only to lose on a controversial double-play.

“I think we played good today, it’s always tough to lose, especially against a good team like Lynnwood who is a competitive team like we are,” Kristjanson said. “It’s a non-conference game, so in the end I guess you could say it doesn’t hurt us. It’s still a learning situation for us though.”

Partway through the first week of the season, the Hawks are 1-1.

“Today we kept battling right there with them,” Kristjanson said. “Our pitching has been solid to start the season out, I’m excited and proud of our underclassmen for stepping up and pitching for us.”

Terrace will take on Marysville-Pilchuck, Thursday at MTHS at 4 p.m.
