Coaches Comments,  “The game was very back and forth. We came from behind, broke the tie, lost the lead, got it back, and lost the lead. The girls never gave up we just needed more innings to string hits together. We are now 5-2 in league with one game to go on Thursday at Kern Valley. ”  Stacy Van Nest
