HELIX 3, MOUNT MIGUEL 0

The Highlanders traveled to Spring Valley and were able to come away with the victory behind some excellent pitching and defense.

Offensively the Highlanders took advantage early as Erin Brown singled in the first and Camryn Jonlonis reached on an error with two outs. Both would score as Kasey Castro roped a double. Helix would round out their scoring in the top of the third inning as McKenzie Flores laced a single, stole second and Jonlonis laced a single to score Flores.

The opportunities came aplenty for the Highlanders as they hit the ball hard all game with ten of their balls hit hard but to the warning track where the Matadors had their outfielders positioned perfectly to make the outs.

For Helix despite the lack of scoring on the day they still got the job done as Laurali Patane limited the Matadors to only a single hit and struck out 13 while tossing the complete game shutout.
