            While the Lancer softball team played hard against the El Camino Warriors at Robinson Park on Thursday, the score was still 7 – 11 by the seventh inning.

            David Hellen, a long time supporter of the team, said that the women were “hitting fine, but the pitching might be a little weak today,” as he watched the game from the bleachers. 

             The players had a tough time, going from 2 – 2 in the first inning, to 3 – 11 in the third, the phenomenal comeback in the sixth inning holding the Warriors at 11 points as the Lancers score to seven points is notable. Even the Warrior’s star player No. 5 Alia Williams only made it to first base before being outed from a catch by a Lancer outfielder.

Star player and pitcher No. 9 Kayla Moore was injured in a previous game, so the team suffered the loss of a strong player for most of the game. No. 23 Bronwyn Stewart pitched for five out of the seven innings, and kept the Warriors at bay during the last two innings.

The seventh inning had notable saves in the outfield by No. 13 Alexandra Oddenido, catching a fly ball and outing a Warrior, as well as No. 2 Maddy Gianoli, catching another fly ball and outing yet another Warrior player.

By the end of the game, the Lancers had gotten their spirit back, and did their best. Even with a loss, fan Alexandra Ballesteros said, “they’re not giving up.”
