Lady Colts move to semi-final competition
Submitted By Mike Heightchew
James Logan Colt softball moves into the Semi-finals of North Coast Section (NCS) girlÕs softball division 1 playoffs with an impressive day at bat late in the game. San Ramon Valley star pitcher Courtney Kezerian came into this game on hot streak with a shutout in the Wolves NCS opener but quickly found how potent Colt hitting could be as she could only hold off a scoring onslaught until the fifth inning.
Peyton Riccio started things off for the Colts as she drove in the first run of the day but the big blow came when Tayler Peters, in that same inning, with two outs, hit a fly ball into the shallow outfield and the ball dropped just out the outfielders reach, bringing in two runs and the lead for good. The Colts then got a little more breathing room as Kristen Kowaki hit a two run triple in the sixth and Julissa Patino bought her home with a great sacrifice fly.
Final score: James Logan 5, San Ramon Valley 2. This was the Colts18th consecutive victory and with one more at Logan on Tuesday, May 27th against Granada at 6 p.m., they will become NCS Division 1 champions for the fifth consecutive time.
