Davis Youth Softball Association teams were swinging away in recent games as web gems, brilliant pitching and timely hits highlighted another busy schedule.

Here’s a look back, first in the Under-10 Division…

Pink Crush 9, Smurfs 5 — Maya Nunes, Bella Hyder, Sophia Fucile and Audrey Teresi had their hitting helmets on, but the Smurfs came up just short — a four-run final inning by the Crush breaking a tie.

Katie Stachowicz stole home twice, and Fucile did it once for the Smurfs.

Stevie Spencer, Nunes, Fucile and Elizabeth McConnell were strong afield, and Spencer and Emma Catacutan turned in good pitching stints.

(The Pink Crush did not submit a recap)

Orange Crush 10, Pink Crush 9 — Ady Schwarz went 3-for-3 and Madison Rutherford added a double as the Orange Crush came from behind to beat the Pink Crush. Rutherford was strong in the circle.

Red Hot Tamales 13, Killer Pandas 10 — Gracie Hartsough smacked two doubles and drove in a run, while Kat Eisele and Halle Gabriel added two-baggers of their own for the Pandas.

Miya Zingaro and Sarah Lagattuta contributed key singles, and Hartsough and Gabriel teamed in the second inning to get two runners at the plate.

(There was no Tamales report)

Toxic Waste 12, Orange Crush 11 — Winning pitcher Cate Scheuring combined with Sarah Griffiths, Abby Wilbur and Anna Lovely on the mound as the Waste scored four times in each of the first three innings.

Scheuring was effective on the base paths, and La-Siya Earnest turned in some dazzling plays on defense.

(The Crush filed no game highlights)

Smurfs 14, Killer Pandas 14 — It was offense, offense, offense as the Pandas scored four times in the last inning to take a one-run lead — only to have the Smurfs tie in the bottom of the fifth as time ran out.

For the Smurfs, Caroline Brennan, Katie Stachowicz, Emma Catacutan, Elizabeth McConnell, Alexandra Zurberg and Bella Hyder were the leading batters.

Hyder caught two runners trying to steal home, while teammates Stachowicz, McConnell, Hyder and Zurborg did steal home.

Catacutan scored the game-tying run.

(The Pandas did not file a report)

Toxic Waste 16, Pink Crush 15 — Mara Bledsoe and Bella Contreras had three RBIs each, and Lili Brush, Heather Breckner, Madison Rutherford and Alex Wolford powered the scoring as the Toxic Waste slipped past the Pink Crush. Rutherford, Brush and Contreras shared circle duties.

Red Hot Tamales 11, Imamoto 7 — Sterling pitching by Lizzy Jones (six strikeouts) and Surina Beal (three K’s) led the Tamales.

Shelby Harry, Amara Sedeno, Jones and Beal were the important bats on this day.

(No report from Imamoto)

In the U-8 group, action was fast and furious. To recap…

Panda Power 18, Pink Panthers 9 — Scoring the maximum four runs in four straight innings, the Pandas banged out 28 hits.

Aly Eisele was 4-for-4 with two doubles, four runs scored and three RBIs. Lindsay Taylor scored twice, drove in two, doubles and singled three times in four trips.

Rachel Davis (4-for-4) knocked in three runs and scored twice, while Emma Brayton scored four times, had an RBI and was also 4-for-4.

Sydney Eberhardt went 3-for-4 with four RBIs and two runs, Shelby Riffle and Hanna Futrell went 3-for-4 with two RBIs and Anna Harrison (3-for-4) scored three times.

Brayton began the game with a nifty catch at shortstop.

(The Panthers did not submit a recap)

Green Emeralds 17, Buffaloes 13 — Dakota Banuelos and Veronica Roe had four RBIs apiece in the high-scoring affair.

Kayla Chin went 5-for-5 for the winners.

Green Emeralds Esha Kajley, Makena Fix and Gracia Howard all blasted four hits.

Buffalo slugger Natalie Thoe went 4-for-4, and Bailey Bramer and Sophia Palomares each drove in three runs and doubled.

Smurfettes 4, Panda Power 1 — Anna Harrison and Lindsay Taylor pitched shutout innings with five strikeouts between them, but Panda Power fell short.

Emma Brayton doubled and singled and score The Power’s lone run. Aly Eisele went 2-for-2. Sydney Edberhardt’s RBI double came in the second inning. Rachel Davis and Taylor added hits.

Hanna Futrell and Shelby Riffle were solid in the field.

(No report from the Smurfettes)

Green Emeralds 5, Pink Panthers 0 — Erika Wenner, Makena Fix and Kayla Chin combined on the seven-hit shutout.

Almost as tough on the mound were the Panthers Jillian and Tommi Garcia, Addison Magness and Zorah Nichols.

Elizabeth Barger had a three-hit game for the winners, and Dakota Banuelos laced a two-run double. Fix added an RBI two-bagger.
