The Bulldog softball team defeated San Dieguito in a North County Tournament game on the road last week and beat Patrick Henry at home in a Falcon Fiesta Tournament game.
The Lady Dawgs are now 3-4 on the season.
The girls made the most of four hits as they beat San Dieguito 3-2. Christina Barrameda led the game with a single and stole second. She advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on an RBI fielders choice by Kailey Hill. Amber Davis got her first of two hits in the game when she doubled in courtesy runner Mel Gaile and the Lady Dawgs led 2-0.
San Dieguito tied the game in the third and Ramona rallied for the winning run in the fifth. Hayley Brinker led the frame with a triple and scored on a passed ball.
Lauren Meitzler picked up the win by pitching four innings without giving up a run. She gave up two hits and struck out two. Hill pitched three innings and struck out three and did not give up an earned run.
Hill went the distance in the circle as the Lady Bulldogs came from behind to beat Patrick Henry 5-3 on their home diamond. Hill scattered six hits and struggled with her control early but when the game was on the line the senior bore down and picked up the W. She struck out one and gave up two earned runs.
Patrick Henry had a 3-0 lead going into the bottom of the fourth inning. Barrameda started the frame with a single and stole second. Jordyn Fick drew a walk and stole second after Barrameda advanced to third on a passed ball. Hill helped her cause with an RBI single and gave way to courtesy runner Gale. Davis advanced Gale to third with a single. Jonna Rodriguez came up with a clutch single to score Gale. Brinker drove in the third run with a single. She had two hits in three trips.
Ramona scored the winning runs in the fifth inning. Sara Whelehon led the inning with a walk. With one out, Fick singled advancing Whelehon to second. Hill was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Hana Bowen then drove in Whelehon with a sacrifice fly and Fick scored on a delayed steal.
