Creek, Hammons lead Bulldogs
Kaycee Creek used her arm and bat and Cierra Hammons enjoyed a career day at the plate as Ceres High School's varsity softball team knocked off first-place East Union 5-2 on Wednesday in Ceres.

Creek, a sophomore pitcher, tossed a complete-game six-hitter with three strikeouts. She also batted 2-for-3 with a triple, two RBIs and one run on offense. Kaycee's playing status was uncertain leading up to the Valley Oak League game due to a finger injury suffered while being hit by a pitch at the NorCal Classic four days earlier.

Hammons, a sophomore catcher, tied a career high for hits in a game with three. She also broke her single-game RBI mark of two by one.

Ceres High grabbed a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the first inning.

The Bulldogs tallied their final three runs in the fourth inning.

Jode Johnson singled twice and scored once for second-place Ceres High (10-6-1, 4-2). Ryan Norton chipped in with a single and a run. Erica Reyes added a run.

The Bulldogs will travel to Manteca today (3:30 p.m.) and Sierra on Friday (4 p.m.).
