“I dare you to try and steal … yeah, didn’t think so.”

The gun show arrives in town.

Softball guru Christi Messner (and associate) survey the on-field action.

“You can run, but I can gun! Get ready to be out in three, two, one…”

“Forget it, sister! I was safe by a mile!!”

They’ll be aiming for a quick bounce-back.

After falling 18-8 Tuesday to Sedro-Woolley at the district tourney, the Central Whidbey Little League All-Star Minors softball squad is still very much alive.

Now Coupeville’s sluggers need to take out Island rival North Whidbey Wednesday when both teams return to Anacortes for a loser-out game.

The winner of that game advances to the championship and a rematch with Sedro, which sits at 2-0 after beating both local teams.

To win the District 11 title, and punch a ticket to state, the winner of the Whidbey rumble will have to knock off Sedro twice.

Tuesday’s game was close for an inning, as Central Whidbey scored two in the bottom of the first to snag a 2-1 lead.

Then the floor fell out from beneath its feet for a bit, as Sedro broke through for 10 runs in the top of the second.

Central Whidbey responded with two in the second, three in the fourth and a final run in the fifth, but couldn’t fully recover.

“The big stage ruffled their feathers a bit once things started to get away from them defensively,” said Central coach Fred Farris. “They fought back hard to get back in the game.”

Mia Farris and Taylor Brotemarkle led Coupeville, rapping singles, scoring twice and forming a potent defensive combo at second and short.

Allison Nastali and Taylor Auld also stepped on home twice, with Nastali “pitching a great game.”

The All-Star roster is comprised of Auld, Brionna Blouin, Brotemarkle, Teagan Calkins, Farris, Mimi Forde, Jada Heaton, Katie Marti, Chloe Marzocca, Madison McMillan, Nastali, Molly Nattress and Mayleen Weatherford.
