After a sterling Opening Day ceremony March 23 and a week off for spring break, the Davis Youth Softball Association is in full swing as a complete slate of games was played over the past week.

Here’s a look back at some of the league’s action, including the 3-0 streak for the U10 Red Hot Tamales …

Red Hot Tamales 14, Smurfs 13 — In a rousing U10 contest, the Tamales held off a determined Smurf rally to prevail.

Maya Beal, Sophie Purves, Grace Heringer, Jane Rauchway, Surina Beal, Shelby Harry, Amara Sedeno and Lizzy Jones were, well, red-hot at the plate for the Tamales and Heringer was credited with the pitching decision.

Meanwhile, the Smurfs — who scored four runs in each of the final three innings but came up just short — were led at the plate by Bella Hyder, Emma Catcutan, Maya Nunes, Sophia Fucile and Elizabeth McConnell.

Nunes and Hyder also turned in fielding gems.

Red Hot Tamales 15, Toxic Waste 11 — Surina Beal and Lizzy Jones each smacked two singles as Shelby Harry, Amara Sedeno, Grace Heringer and Mia Mark all contributed safeties.

Sophie Purves, Jessie Finkelor and Jane Rauchway scored and Maya Beal turned in a terrific fielding play.

Surina Beal was the winning pitcher and Jones also was solid in the circle. Each struck out four batters.

Red Hot Tamales 10, Killer Pandas 7 — On Opening Day, the Tamales banged out 10 hits and got seven K’s from pitcher Surina Beal in a win.

Beal had three hits, Shelby Harry added two and Sophie Purves doubled and singled. Jones, who had two strikeouts in a relief role, also doubled. Amara Sedeno, Jessie Finkelor and Grace Heringer added base hits.

Defensively, the Tamales were a wall as Maya Beal and Jane Rauchway turned in outstanding fielding plays.

Panda Power 18, Fireballs 14 — Behind 31 hits, the power of the panda stood out.

Aly Eisele and Emma Brayton each went 5-for-5 and Anna Harrison, Hannah Futrell and Shea Kordana had four hits apiece and combined for seven RBIs in the U8 victory.

Shelby Riffle, Lindsay Taylore, Sydeney Eberhardt and Rachel Davis were all contributors to Panda Power.

Smurfettes 12, Flaming Buffaloes 9 — In a U8 classic, these two teams went toe-to-toe before the little Smurfs held on.

In a 19-hit attack, Paige Lacoste and Mariah Ruiz paced the winners at the plate.

Natalie Thoe, Sophie Palomares, Laura Osborne, Caroline Carrie and Paige Jenness carried the Buffaloes on offense.

Palomares and Thoe turned in solid defense.

Panda Power 12, Green Emeralds 12 — Rachel Davis’ two-run single tied the game as the Pandas scored four runs with two outs in the final inning in the U12 division on Opening Day.

Every Panda had a hit, with Anna Harrison and Sydney Eberhardt each going 4-for-4.

Aly Eisele, Emma Brayton and Hannah Futrell each scored twice, with Shea Kordana and Shelby Riffle also coming home.

Tsunami 13, Firecrackers 5 — Winning pitcher Sarah Needles threw three strong innings and Marie Dean’s bases-loaded double plated three runs in this Opening Day win.

Kayla Nunes also was big at the plate.

Woodland Striking Stars 13, Tsunami 10 — Shayleigh Thompson, Kayla Nunes and Marie Dean led another strong offensive showing, but couldn’t keep up with Woodland’s attack.

Lauren Wilcox struck out five and was supported by Shauna Wallace’s web gem at first base.

Blue Fire 3-game recap — After a 10-4 win over the Fireballs on the first day of the season, the Blue Fire went on to top the Stingers, 18-11, before losing a heartbreaker, 15-14, to the Firecrackers last week. No individual stats or highlights were given.

Blue Fire competes at the U12 level.
