YUMA, Ariz. – The Yuma Lady Criminals softball team had all the confidence in the world going into their second home game of the season. They won all three of the games they’ve played so far; outscoring their opponents by a 59 to 2 margin.
But, the Lady Crims would be hosting a much tougher opponent this time around in the Cibola Lady Raiders; a team coming off an impressive doubleheader sweep of Lake Havasu on the road.
It would show early and often, as Cibola opened the first two inning with six quick runs; which included RBI’s by Dennise Carrasco and Daniela Castro.
Lady Raiders ace Nadia Hernandez also played solid ball, as she kept Yuma off the scoreboard the whole contest and only allowed a single Lady Crims hit all afternoon.
Cibola would win in a convincing 11-0 shutout in five innings, giving Yuma it’s first loss of the season.
