An exciting walk-off win by the Ninja Monkeys highlight a great opening week for the Davis Youth Softball Association.

Including in that contest, the DYSA hitters were all swinging hot bats in the early season contests.

Here’s a look at the 10U action …

Ninja Monkeys 9, Mad Hatters 8: Winning pitcher Lindsay Taylor’s single brought home Ahna Meyer to cap a four-run rally in the bottom of the fourth and final inning.

Sarah Griffiths kept the Monkeys in it early, pitching the first two frames with a pair of strikeouts, then made a couple of strong plays at first base to help Taylor hold the Mad Hatters scoreless in the fourth.

The Ninja Monkeys also excelled on the base paths as Dakota Banuelos (two walks, one run) and Zorah Nichols (two walks) each stole two bases and Hallie Gabriel swiped one and scored a run.

Olivia Johnson reached base twice and crossed home plate once, while Gianna Cacciatore scored the game-tying run.

For the Mad Hatters, Maya Zingaro went 3-for-3 at the plate, stole six bases, scored twice and threw two strong innings.

Other good pitching came from 10U first-time hurlers Alyssa Waterson and Mariah Ruiz, with Colette Quaas and Kayla Chin playing helpful defense.

Offensive contributors for the Hatters included Alexa Folb (RBI), Annika Fisk (RBI), Shelby Harry (RBI), Ada Freese (two runs) and Eliana Enriquez (two walks).

Softball Slammers 13, Mad Hatters 9: Jordan Zuniga and Sophia Palomares each knocked in two runs to lead the winners.

The Slammers got off to a strong start when Madison Rutherford struck out the side in the first inning, then got RBIs from Emi Wong, Jane Garvin and Sophie Fucile.

Maddie Martin, who earned the save, and Chloe Adams were good in the circle, while Dakota Rutherford and Belen Harding helped the Slammers with their bats.

The Mad Hatters got hits from Annika Fisk and Maya Zingaro, while Alexa Folb, Kayla Chin and Colette Quaas ran wild on the bases.

Zingaro struck out three in her two innings pitched and Shelby Harry shined behind the plate and walked twice.

Softball Slammers 14, Hot Tamales 10: Strong pitching from winner Madison Rutherford, Jordan Zuniga, Maddie Martin and Chloe Adams, who got the save, lifted the Slammers.

Rutherford added three hits, Lilianne Brush had one safety and Jane Garvan played a slick third base and knocked in a late run.

Green Chili Peppers 10, Pink Peace Signs 8: Makena Fix made a dazzling play at first with two on in the bottom of the final inning to preserve the victory.

Fix also tossed a pair of strong innings and flame-thrower Lily Gieschen pitched the next two and closed things out.

Anna Harrison, Grace Heringer and Gieschen had two hits each for the Chili Peppers.

Pink fielders Cale Fehrenbacher and Bella Hyder each made good defensive plays to keep their team in the contest, while those two plus Isabella Lester, Alana Turner and Piper Brandy had hits.

Siberian Tigers 11, Green Chili Peppers 8: Stevie Spencer went 2-for-2 and scored three times, while striking out six from the circle to pace the winners.

The hot-hitting Tigers also got singles from Kristine Schmitz, Heather Breckner and Tara Reddy and two runs each from Katianna Higgins, Libby Slater and Reddy.

Breckner, Reddy and Spencer played sparkling defense.

The Chili Peppers actually outhit the Tigers as La’Siya Earnest, Sydney Eberhardt and Mia Mark helped the Green squad post 10 hits.

Hot Tamales 13, Siberian Tigers 9: The Tigers fell despite Tara Reddy’s 2-for-2 performance that included two runs scored.

Also for the Cats, Kristine Schmitz singled and scored while Libby Slater (two), Heather Breckner (two), Stevie Spencer and Katianna Higgins had runs.

Erika Wenner struck out two in her circle stint and got defensive help from Breckner at first and Reddy behind the plate.

14U action

Intensity 21, Dragons 4: The winners were led on the field and at the plate by pitcher Sophie Mae Bertain and catcher Lauren Aquino, who hit leadoff.

The 21-run explosion was a true team effort, with Sabina Padilla hitting the ball especially hard and Erica Cohen sending a line drive to left for her first career hit.

Intensity infielders Kaylee Velasquez, Claire Michael, Lili Kunimoto and Rachael Bernauer all shined with the glove.
