Cibola routs Kofa
Jackie Pierson allowed five hits in six innings as Cibola beat Kofa 11-0 on Friday.
Pierson didn't walk a batter and was the beneficiary of 16 Raider hits. Bethany Olea, Lezlie Morris and Melissa Padilla had three hits each, including a home run for Padilla. Alexis Evans added two hits.
The game was scoreless going into the fourth when the Raiders broke through off Sarai Camacho.
“It's been a really tough week,” Kofa coach Emma Morrison said. “We had three games in a row after a tournament last weekend. It was a tall order. I just think we ran out of gas.”
Krista Keller had two hits for Kofa.
Ehrig leads Gila Ridge
Summer Ehrig had three hits and drove in two runs as Gila Ridge beat Yuma High 7-3 on Friday.
Arianna Rader added two hits for the Hawks (9-3), who led 5-0 after three. Yuma High cut the lead to 5-3 after five but Gila Ridge put two insurance runs up on the board in the sixth.
Warriors split first day of tourney
Victor Duran was on double duty for San Pasqual on Friday, picking up the win on the mound and generating all the offense in Game 1.
The Warriors topped Vincent Memorial 4-1 before losing to Julian High School 13-8 on the first day of their tournament.
Duran threw a complete game and struck out seven against Vincent Memorial. He also hit two home runs in the game that scored all four of the Warriors.
It was a different story for San Pasqual against Julian. Warriors coach Faron Owl said their pitching wasn't quite as solid the second time around.
“We played decent ball,” Owl said. “We had a couple mistakes that kind of put things out of reach and our pitching was a little off. I'm feeling good about tomorrow though.”
The Warriors will play at 8:30 a.m. today against Antelope and 4:30 p.m. against Borrego Springs.
Cibola storms past Kofa
Down two in the bottom of the third, Cibola scored three to take the lead then got two insurance runs in the sixth in a 7-4 win over Kofa.
