Emma McManigle fired a two-hitter as Clarkston edged West Valley 2-1 in a 2A Greater Spokane League softball game Monday at Clarkston that included an immaculate inning by Eagles relief pitcher Heather Penniman.
McManigle struck out four and walked one for the Bantams (4-5, 4-5), whose single-run innings in the first and third were all they needed in a game that lasted scarcely more than an hour.
“Probably the best we’ve played all year,” Clarkston coach Shane Burke said, noting an early catch by shortstop Leah Copeland that set the tone for a strong defensive performance.
Hannah Murphy hit an RBI double for the Bantams, and Copeland had two singles.
Penniman took the mound in the fourth and crafted her immaculate inning in the sixth, striking out three Bantams with the minimum nine pitches.
