Celeste Canchola hits walkoff run in 6-5 win against Cabrillo

On April 12, 2018, the Hartnell Softball Team defeated Cabrillo College in a late 7th inning thriller. The Lady Panthers headed into Thursday’s game against Cabrillo with a recent 10-2 win against conference opponent Gavilan earlier in the week on April 10. Sophomores Angelina Ruiz, Danielle Caoili, Dominic Montes, and Adalena Infante were congratulated before the game as it was Sophomore Night, and that was their final home game as Panthers. The previous match against Cabrillo back in March, did not go to plan for Hartnell since Cabrillo came out on top with a 7-5 win. Danielle Caoili (2), Celeste Canchola (2) and Bethany Cardenas all provided RBIs giving the offensive spark needed in Thursday's game. Until the 7th inning Hartnell had a 5-1 lead; however, Cabrillo responded scoring 4 runs in the top of the 7th. Nonetheless, the Lady Panthers remained composed and rallied late in the bottom of the 7th inning, managing to get the bases loaded and setting up Celeste Canchola to provide the walkoff winning hit giving Hartnell the 6-5 win over Cabrillo. Hartnell now sits at 13-16 (.448) and 5- 5 (.500) in conference play with only 5 games remaining on the schedule.
