Yes, it’s true. Clayton Valley, one of the hottest softball teams in the area right now, defeated Freedom 7-4 today. Here’s the box score:
Clayton Valley 7, Freedom 4
Freedom 010 001 2 — 4 8 4
Clayton Valley 105 100 x — 7 11 3
Hannah Williams and Susan Robertson. Dallas Cooney and Jori Barr. W: Cooney (6-1). L: Williams. 2B: Victoria Kobold (CV), Amanda Moore (CV). HR: Malena Padilla (F), 2nd inn., none on; Williams (F), 7th inn., one on; Kelsey Chambers (CV), 3rd inn., one on. Record: Clayton Valley 11-10, 9-5 BVAL. Highlights: F — Kortnee Wiley 3-for-4, run; Jackie Zepeda 2-for-3, RBI. CV — K. Chambers 3-for-4, run, 3 RBI; Eryn Brescia 2-for-3; Amber Curry 2-for-3, HBP, 3 runs.
Nobody should be too surprised because Clayton’s been really hot lately. Still though, it’s the first time in over a month that Freedom’s allowed a run and it comes in a loss. This sets up (provided Deer Valley beats Pittsburg tomorrow) a true BVAL championship game next Tuesday at Deer Valley between the Wolverines and Falcons. I’d be there if I were you.
