LA North and Inland Empire: Valencia shuts out Vista Murrieta

Valencia was the only softball team from the LA North region to advance to the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoffs.

Valencia starter Carly Mortensen tossed a three-hit shutout in a 1-0 win over Vista Murrieta on Tuesday at Valencia High School.

Andrea Brackpool drove in the only run of the game with a bad-hop, two-out single up the middle that glanced off the shortstop’s glove and into center field.

Pinch runner Wendy Cardinali scored from second for the only run of the game.

Mortensen struck out nine and walked one. She struck out the side in the first and second innings and notched seven strikeouts in a row in the first three innings.

Vista Murrieta freshman starter Selina Ta’amilo gave up only four hits and struck out 10.
