SAN MARINO – It wasn’t exactly dj vu, but it sure came close.
Just like it did nearly a month ago in the first meeting, the La Canada High School softball team capitalized on San Marino errors, and again it was Lauren O’Leary and Anna Edwards leading the way, helping the Spartans to a 2-0 Rio Hondo League victory Wednesday afternoon.
O’Leary, a junior, flirted with a perfect game before ending with a stellar two-hit performance in which she struck out 15.
Edwards, also a junior, hit her fifth home run of the season in the sixth to give La Canada (13-2, 4-1) a cushion, but it was her speed on the bases in the first that paved the way for the win.
Edwards, the leadoff batter, hit a fly to center, and it appeared San Marino (10-5, 3-2) was in for a routine out. Instead, the ball dropped, allowing Edwards to safely reach second base. She stole third during the next at-bat, and a check throw to third was mishandled, allowing Edwards to score the winning run.
