Homer senior McKi Needham pitched a scoreless game and smackd a pair of doubles and a triple en route to leading the Mariners softball team to a 16-0 win over Kenai Central Tuesday evening in Homer.

The victory opened the season for Homer, while Kenai dropped to 1-1 overall after a win last weekend over Kodiak. The Kardinals will play a makeup game against Kodiak Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Soldotna softball fields.

Kenai coach Mark King said he was pleased with the Kardinals defensive effort, which he thought was crisper than the 36-27 win over Kodiak, but said the production on offense was going to waste.

“Everyone made contact with the ball, but they hit right to (Homer) every time,” King said.

Kenai finished with three hits, one each from Emily Koziczkowski, Patricia Catacutan and Cierra King. Savannah Jones also got on base on a dropped third strike.

King pitched the full game for Kenai. King shut out the Mariners in two innings — including a perfect second inning — but gave up nine hits while striking out two in the first and third frames.

Homer finished with nine hits.
