Creekview's first game of the Class AAAAA state finals didn't go as planned Thursday afternoon, as the Lady Grizzlies fell to Northgate 8-0 in four innings.

The Lady Grizzlies (25-10) managed just five hits against Northgate's McKenzie Peace, who struck out three and walked one. Creekview put a runner in scoring position in almost every inning, with players on third at the end of the first, fourth and fifth innings, but couldn't push a run across the plate.

Cynda Tate was 2-for-3 for the Lady Grizzlies, reaching on singles in the first and fourth innings. Taylor Petty reached base in her only two plate appearances, as she singled in the third and drew a walk in the fifth. Ashley Chumbler and Savannah Gruber had the only other hits for Creekview.

Northgate, on the other hand, seemed to score at will.

The Lady Vikings scored three runs in the bottom of the first before adding a pair in the second and third innings. They capped the scoring with a run in the fourth to make it 8-0.

Northgate strung together singles and walks and benefited from a few errors to produce its runs. Its only extra-base hit was a solo home run by Jeana Pealor in the fifth inning.

Pealor led the Lady Vikings, going 3-for-3 with two runs scored and an RBI.

Gracie Dorr, who had a string of solid outings leading up to the start in Columbus, took the loss for Creekview. She lasted just 2 1/3 innings, given up seven hits and a walk, while striking out three. However, just three of the seven runs Dorr allowed were earned as the Lady Grizzlies were charged with three errors in the game.

Ashley Walraven relieved Dorr and pitched the final 1 1/3 innings. She allowed one run on three hits and a walk.
