***********

Here is our recap of the game:

The Lakewood Lancers took an aggressive game plan to Edison on Tuesday in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoffs and came away with a 7-1 victory.

Lakewood (26-4) will visit Orange Lutheran on Thursday for the quarterfinal round.

Lancers ace Vanessa Foreman only allowed three hits and an unearned run during her complete-game performance. The sophomore struck out five batters and threw a first-pitch strike to 21 of 26 batters.

CJ Apacible’s two-out RBI single in the first inning gave Foreman a lead she never relinquished. Back-to-back home runs from Karina Ibarra and Montana Dixon in the fifth inning broke the game open, and Lakewood used aggressive base running to bat around and score four insurance runs in the sixth inning.

Ibarra scored three runs and drove in two while all but one spot in the Lancers’ lineup reached base.

“That’s our philosophy,” Lakewood coach Andy Miramontes said of being aggressive. “We’re playing our best softball of the season by far.”
