The Vaqueros dropped the second game to East L.A. 2-1 as Majisty Shomo held them to four hits. Brandi Almaraz tied it 1-1 with an RBI double in the second. The Huskies took a 2-1 lead in the fifth on a single by Dominique De Alba, a sac bunt, another single and an error.

The Vaqueros went 3-1 in the two-day tourney.

"These four games were great games," said coach Justine Bosio. "I am proud of our team effort from all our players this weekend. We talked about gaining positive momentum going into the start of conference next week and I feel like we did a lot of great things to do just that."
