GOLD AND SILVER TOURNAMENT

MAR VISTA 5, HELIX 4

For the first time on the young season, the Helix Highlanders dropped a contest as they lost a tough one to the Mariners of Mar Vista.

Helix would actually get on the board first in the bottom of the third inning as they would push across two runs to take a 2-0 lead.

With the two-run lead, the Highlanders were cruising when they ran into trouble as the Mariners finally got going with three runs to take their first lead of the ballgame. But Helix would answer right back in the bottom of the sixth as they scored twice to retake the lead 4-3.

Unfortunately once again the Mariners would answer in the top of the seventh with two runs which would be all they would need as they shut down the Highlanders in the bottom of the inning to preserve the victory.

Helix on the day had 9 hits and were led by Nicole Hernandez who went 2-4 and Isabella Bordine who knocked in 2 RBI in going 1-2.

Taking the loss for the Highlanders was Sophia Ramuno who went 2 innings in which she gave up 4 runs on 2 hits while walking 2 and striking out 4.
