GAHR 4, SANTA FE 2
SANTA FE SPRINGS —A surprising run through the CIF-SS playoffs has come to an end for the Santa Fe High School softball team, which was third in the Del Rio League. But not without a valiant effort against the number four seed team in the division.
Visiting Gahr high came from behind, scoring four times in the fifth inning to defeat the Chiefs, 4-2 in a Division 3 second round game Tuesday afternoon.
Gahr (23-7), on the other hand, advances to the quarterfinals for the first time since the 2008 season. The Gladiators will host Laguna Hills, a 4-3 winner over Burroughs of Burbank, on Thursday.
Junior center fielder Alyssa Cuffia hit a 3-run home run to give Gahr a 4-2 lead in the fifth.
Santa Fe coach Randi Berg: “Every game we win is a bonus for us, but I think the girls put too much pressure on themselves. We had a great season, but it didn’t end the way we wanted it to.”
