PORTLAND - The Hermiston softballers split a pair of games on the opening day of the Central Catholic Tournament Monday.

The Bulldogs (3-5) fell to David Douglas 10-1 to start the day but rebounded in a big way to demolish Benson 12-1.

Lindsey Walchli picked up the win in a game where the Dawgs scored in all but one inning, and strung together 18 hits. The only extra-base hit in the game came from Hermiston's Brittany Coombs, a double.

Walchli allowed only four hits and the Hermiston defense played error-free softball.

Going into the fourth inning of their loss, Lindzey Ramos was locked in a 0-0 pitchers' duel. But David Douglas broke the tie with one in the fourth and then added five in the fifth. Hermiston couldn't get their bats to match, recording just three hits in the game.

Hermiston will be back in action today with a pair of games, though the matchups had yet to be decided Monday night.
