As the Davis Youth Softball Association gets set for its year-end tournament May 16-18, action in the local league grew in intensity.

And speaking of intensity — Caylee Ade and Lili Kunimoto scored in the final inning to break a 10-10 tie as the Davis Intensity held on to beat Woodland, 12-11, in a recent 14U outing on the road.

The Intensity (8-6) got terrific pitching from Sophie Mae Bertain but it was the local bats that carried the day.

Sabina Padilla and Claire Michael each had run-scoring triples and Hannah Hergesell whacked two, two-out hits which also drove in Intensity tallies.

Meanwhile, the 10U postseason pool play heated up …

Ninja Monkeys 13, Pink Peace Signs 6 — Sarah Griffiths and Lindsay Taylor combined to pitch five solid innings for the winners, who scored in every inning.

Halle Gabriel was 3-for-3 with four RBIs and Taylor went 3-for-3 with two RBIs and scored twice. Sarah Lagattuta drove in three runs and Caroline Chilcott kncoked in two and crossed the plate twice.

Griffiths and Gianna Cacciatore turned in web gems.

For the Pink Peace Signs, Bella Hyder singled twice, struck out nine in her time in the circle and still had time to combine with first baseman Sanne Dequine on an impressive defensive play.

Isabella Lester and Cate Fehrenbacher also were strong afield.

Dequine and Fehrenbacher each had singles and two runs batted in and Alana Turner added a key safety.

Siberian Tigers 8, Green Chili Peppers 7 — Kristine Schmitz blasted a two-run triple (going 2-for-2) and the Tigers Libby Slater, Tara Reddy and Stevie Spencer added important hits.

Scoring for the winners were Katianna Higgins, Erika Wenner, Laura Osborne, Ziona Wells, Reddy, Spencer, Slater and Schmitz.

Higgins and Schmitz also flashed the leather, while Schmitz and Reddy caught a Pepper in a run-down.

Hot Tamales 10, Softball Slammers 7 — Sophia Fucile went 2-for-2 and singles by Emi Wong and Chloe Adams aided the Slammers.

Belen Harding, Sophia Palomares and Jane Garvin were trouble on the base paths.

Madison Rutherford pitched four strong innings for the Slammers, striking out 10 and allowing only two runs. Adams struck out three and Jordan Zuniga and Madison Martin were solid behind the plate.

Pink Peace Signs 10, Mad Hatters 10 — Emma Catacutan doubled and singled while driving in four runs to lead the Signs.

Sanne Dequine drove in a run and spanked two singles and Isabella Lester had a hit.

Bella Hyder fanned six while catching a pop up and Elise Wyman and Cate Fehrenbacher combined for a nifty fielding play. Dequine, Catacutan, Hyder and Fehrenbacher all made other solid defensive plays.

Ninja Monkeys 8, Hot Tamales 7 —Pitcher Sarah Griffiths held the Tamales scoreless through two innings as the Monkeys held on for the decision. She struck out three.

Lindsay Taylor picked up the save in the circle.

Second baseman Olivia Johnson corralled a hard grounder and threw out the runner opening the game, then added a nice catch to end an inning with runners in scoring position.

Dakota Banuelos had a web gem, too.

In the final frame, Halle Gabriel and Sarah Lagattuta made nice plays to keep the Tamales’ rally at three runs.

Gabriel doubled, scored and drove in a run. Hits by Gianna Cacciatore and Alexandra Zurborg brought home runs and Banuelos scored two times.

Softball Slammers 14, Siberian Tigers 2 — Emi Wong led the way with a double, single and two RBIs in the win.

Lilianne Brush and Jordan Zuniga each added two-baggers with Madison Rutherford, Sophia Fucile and Jane Garvin getting important singles.

Madison Martin and Chloe Adams each stole home once and Belen Harding, Sophia Palomares and Dakota Rutherford scored.

Rutherford struck out 10 batters with circle help from Adams.

There also were some nifty performances in the U6 division, which does not keep scores …

Red Rubies — In games with the Powerful Pandas and Dynamite Diamonds, Sofia Kelly’s bat came alive with three solid hits. Erin McAllister and Chloe Harrison added impressive safeties while Emily Wilcox and Hannah Demmin were solid on defense.

Sasha Sinclair excelled on the base paths and Daphne Roe was a ballhawk with the glove.

Powerful Pandas — Kaytlin LeBar-Triepke hit three grand slam homers in Pandas’ games.

Kaylie Adams led off the Red Rubies’ game with a hit. Strong base running and powerful hitting was contributed by Anna Coleman, Adelina Wehner, Ella Ackerman and Maya Gagnon.

In a nail-biter with Girl Power, the entire Panda lineup hit, highlighted by Aubrey McLin, Coleman, Wehner, Ella Ackerman, Gagnon and LeBar-Triepke blasts.

Kaylie Adams hammered three round-trippers with the bases loaded.
