Titans News · Softball complete journey to CIF finals

A total of 17 semifinal elimination games took place on Thursday to reduce the field to the final 12 teams.

Fourth-seeded Eastlake (18-10-1) defeated second-seeded Rancho Buena Vista, 4-3, at the Poway Sportsplex to earn a berth in Friday’s Division I final (7:30 p.m. start) against fifth-seeded Rancho Bernardo (20-12).

Sophomore Sierra Tufts hurled a complete game six-hitter while the Titans rallied for two runs in the sixth inning to erase a 3-2 deficit.

The game-tying run scored on a wild pitch; Taylor Tropp then scored the game-winning run on a force-out.
