Bruins win ninth straight, left alone in first place
Final test looms at home next week against Central Catholic
Barlow pitcher Abbie Bergerson took matters into her own hands with first place in the Mount Hood Conference softball standings on the line Monday.
Bergerson tossed a two-hit shutout in the Bruins 2-0 home win over David Douglas never allowing a Scot to get past second base. She also supplied the games only runs with a pair of RBI-doubles.
She started off really quick and settled into the game right away, Barlow coach Tom Topaum said. She got really composed, and her composure just took over.
The league has seen a jumble of four teams challenge for the title this spring, but after Mondays win it is Barlow (9-2) alone at the top riding a nine-game win streak. The Bruins also clinched the season series with the Scots, winning two of the three matchups.
Barlow plays at Reynolds on Wednesday, while David Douglas is at home against Centennial.
