Softball prevails

Like a scene straight from a movie turned into reality, when the City College women’s softball team came into the last inning full force to pull off an unbelievable win and leave Southwestern with dismay after appearing to obtain the “W”.

Last Wednesday, the Lady Knights ranked 3rd place hosted the jaguars in 1st for a regular season game.

The Jaguars started the ballgame off with a run from Heidi Ferrer after fellow team member hit a pop fly into left field.

An easy 3 up 3 outs by the knights in the top of the 3rd inning sent the jaguars back out to the field before they could remove their gloves.

Southwestern compiled 3 errors throughout the game, yet City College still couldn’t seem to get a break. Especially when every call in City Colleges favor just so happened to be missed by referees.

Last chance to give it their all, the Lady Knights stepped it up.

Infielder Amanda Wilson gave Southwestern’s pitcher a run for her money when she blasted the ball into the outfield off the fence for the game winning hit in the bottom of the 7th inning.

With a final score of 4-2 the knights added a win, pushing City College closer to their reigning Pacific Coast Conference title.

City Colleges Christina Duong pitched a 5 hitter and is now currently 2-0 in the Pacific Coast Conference.

Southwestern received 5 hits and City College received 6 hits for the game.

Pitcher Christina Duong, infielder Alexis Coronado, infielder Erika Rangel, outfielder Natalie Garrett, outfielder Ashia Lopez, and infielder Amanda Wilson all received hits.
