Archbishop Murphy baseball team wins state championship

Archbishop Murphy baseball team wins 2012 state baseball championship

Aaron Lommers of the Everett Herald reports that the Wildcats beat the Lions 7-6 in the 2012 2A state baseball championship game at County Stadium in Yakima on Saturday. 

"Not many high school baseball players know what it feels like to deliver a walk-off hit in extra innings to win a state championship game," said Lommers. "Archbishop Murphy’s Eric Lawson does now. The Wildcats’ senior hit a curveball into center field in the bottom of the eighth inning Saturday night, scoring Patrick Spak and Trever Morrison as Murphy came from behind to defeat Lynden 7-6 in eight innings in the 2A state championship game."

Nick Patterson of the Everett Herald reports that the Wildcats beat the Red Raiders 1-0 in a 2A state soccer quarterfinal match at Everett Memorial Stadium on Saturday evening. 

"The Wildcats used a typically resolute defensive performance — Archbishop Murphy has allowed just two goals all season — along with a wonderful solo effort from Josh Bartley to run their record to 20-0 and advance to next weekend's final four," said Patterson.

"Archbishop Murphy was in control throughout Saturday's game. However, with Bellingham also playing solid defense, scoring chances were at a premium for the Wildcats."

"In the 33rd minute Josh Bartley picked up the ball near midfield and went on a weaving run, beating one defender and skipping past a second before drilling a low shot from the edge of the penalty box into the right corner, giving the Wildcats a 1-0 lead."
