After falling in a close 2-1 battle with Central Kitsap Monday, the Olympic Trojans softball team felt like it wanted to prove something against South Kitsap.

After all, the Wolves beat Oly 11-1 early in the season but without five Oly starters.

So when the Trojans trumped South 12-1 on Wednesday, players like catcher Athena Rosario got the last laugh.

“We were all coming into this game like, ‘This time we have everybody here. We’re going to bring it to them,’” Rosario, who was one of the absent players in the first meeting, said. “I really think we did too. We made them eat their words thinking that Oly is just another team.

“But we’re not.”

The Trojans remain just a game-and-a-half behind the Wolves for the final Bridge Division playoff spot with the win.

Oly coach Rachel Davenport said while the road won’t be easy, Oly wants into the playoff picture.

“They want to win the rest of the way out,” Davenport said following the Trojans’ 13-hit effort. “This is a good way to take out first step in that direction.”

Sophomore Kelsey Anchors, who pitched Oly by the Wolves, said it feels good to strike back against the perennially strong SK squad.

“It feels so good,” Anchors said. “They mowed us last time. Now we can get back in their faces.”

The Trojans host North Kitsap at 3:30 p.m. Monday.
