EL CENTRO, Calif. – Imperial Valley College softball has suffered enough losses this season not to be in the hunt for the Pacific Coast Conference title, but they are still looking to make a name for themselves in the home stretch of the regular season.
The Lady Arabs would like nothing better than to take advantage of their home field and play spoiler to conference opponents; in this case it would be Grossmont.
Both teams played scoreless softball for the first three innings of the contest, until Grossmont punched in a couple of runs in the top half of the 4th inning. IVC would respond in the bottom half, taking advantage of an early inning throwing error to capitalize with an RBI single by team catcher and former Calipatria Hornet Raena Banaga.
The game would go back and forth into extra innings, before the Lady Arabs let this one slip away in the 8th. They would suffer an 8-5 loss.
