On Saturday, Feb. 18, Delta’s Lady Mustangs had a softball game versus the Golden Eagles from Feather River.

The game started at 11 a.m. and went to seven innings.

The Lady Mustangs left the match with a win streak of 4-0.

Freshman Champane Flores expressed excitement before the game began.

“I feel excited. I’m ready to get this fourth win. I love when we get to play on our home field,” she said.

Flores said the team has a solid structure, with everyone having a different personality but coming together on the field.

Before the game started No. 11 Chase Bailey, said she was nervous, but excited.

“Just because there’s a lot of pressure because we have a winning streak,” she said.

She then went on to say she and her team have practiced when they can due to the wet weather holding up practice.

Throughout the first and second inning, the teams were evenly matched as there was no score with both teams tied zero to zero.

At the top of the third inning No. 24 Alyssa Rude from Feather River hit a home run to take the lead with three.

During the fourth inning Delta scored to put the score at 3 to 1.

The score stayed the same during the fifth inning but the Lady Mustangs made a double play at the top of the sixth inning.

During the bottom of the sixth Delta scored two points to tie it up. In the seventh and last inning Delta got a base hit and ended the game with a single, which lead the Lady Mustangs by one point.

“This game was very competitive. We had to do a good job at bats because we’ve never seen a great pitcher like that before,” said Head Coach Jim Fisher. “Adversity was the key to winning this game.”
