Softball: Diamond Bar stuns Bonita, 4-3

Diamond Bar’s softball team stayed in the Hacienda League title chase with a 4-3 victory over Bonita on Wednesday, handing a rare loss to the CIF-Southern Section Division 2s top-ranked team. Brahmas pitcher Dani Wilson belted a two-run double in the first inning and kept it going in the cirlcle to hand the Bearcats (18-3, 6-1) their first league loss. Aubrey Horita and Lizzy McCabe each were 2 for 2 for the Brahmas (11-9, 6-2), who remain just a half game out of first place.

Bonita shortstop Courtney Gano had another big game, going 4 for 4 with two runs scored, but it wasn’t enough.

Bonita’s loss also helped West Covina (13-6, 5-1), now tied with Bonita in the loss column.
Los Altos (11-5, 4-3) sits in fourth, but the Conquerors are ranked No. 7 in Division 2 and will face Bonita at its place on Friday at 3:30 p.m., in hopes of tightening up the league race even more.

Bonita and West Covina will meet for the final time at Bonita on Friday, May 6 in what could decide the league title. Bonita beat West Covina 8-5 on the road in the first meeting.

    give me a break it was like Buster Douglas knocking out Mike Tyson the DB fans and players went nuts when they won and they did win deservingly so. They played a great game while Bonita committed 4 errors and 5 walks three of witch were hit batters that should be charged to the idiotic home umpire who had no sense of where home plate was. Congrats again to Diamond bar on a great win!
