La Conner diamond teams swept by Coupeville
April 19, 2023
The Coupeville High School baseball team stole a win at La Conner last Thursday.
Not that the visiting Wolves eked out an unexpected NW2B/1B triumph. A veteran Coupeville lineup, ran wild on the basepaths –19 stolen bases – and prevailed 12-2 over the youthful Braves, who averted a shutout when Kenai Zimmerman delivered a bases-loaded two-run single in the third inning.
La Conner, falling to 1-7, kept within striking distance up until the game's midpoint.
The Braves received a solid start from southpaw hurler Logan Burks, trailing just 5-2 following Zimmerman's run-producing hit.
