The Vikings could just not keep up with the scoring of the Mills Vikings (14-3) on Wednesday at Paly, bringing their record up to 14-7.

Paly jumped out to an early lead in the bottom of the first inning on a base hit by catcher Maddie Martinson (’16), who was named the player of the game as she picked up three hits and a walk while driving in two runs and scoring one of her own.

After being held scoreless in the first two innings, Mills took a lead of their own in the third inning. Mills opened their scoring with a two-run double, and then added three more runs on two run scoring singles and a run scoring groundout to give them a 5-1 lead.

Mills struck once again in the fifth inning, adding six more runs to stretch their lead to 11-1.

Down 10 runs in the bottom of the fifth, the Vikings never gave up. They put together a two-out rally that saw six consecutive Vikings reach base in the three-run inning. Center- fielder and leadoff hitter Kabria Dame (’15) started the rally off with a double and later scored. She also walked twice and made several plays in the field to help the team.

With a run in the sixth and three more in the seventh, Mills took a 15-4 lead into the bottom of the ninth. Paly was able to push across three more runs, but could not close the gap as they lost 15-7.

Ushana Vivek (’18) and Elizabeth Schnaubelt (’18) each took the mound for the first time this season.

Palo Alto will have their next game on Friday as they take on Monta Vista (17-6) at 4:00 p.m. at Paly.
