Monday's roundup: Villa Park wins, stays ahead of pack in North Hills race

STAFF WRITER

Villa Park put itself in prime position to win the North Hills League crown outright later in the week with a positive result Monday afternoon.

The Spartans jumped out to a five-run lead early, and pitchers Krista Dalgarn and Lexi Ruel fended off a Brea Olinda comeback attempt as they held on for a 7-6 win at home. The win set the stage for a showdown Wednesday with Foothill, which trails Villa Park by a game in the league standings.

Dalgarn allowed three earned runs over 5 2/3 innings and also went 2 for 3 at the plate. Freshman Mackenzie Boglin also went 2 for 3, Shayna Dahlen homered and freshman Kaci Branch knocked in two runs for the Spartans (16-10, 4-1).

Foothill (14-11, 3-2) is the lone team that has knocked off Villa Park in league, and the Knights will have another opportunity to do so when they travel to take on the Spartans at Villa Park High on Wednesday.

In the Crestview League:

Canyon 3, Yorba Linda 2: Junior outfielder Taryn Young roped a pair of doubles and drove in two runs, and freshman pitcher Miranda Stoddard scattered six hits to give the Comanches sole possession of first place in league with one game to play. Canyon (15-10, 4-1) can win the Crestview League title outright with a win at home against Esperanza on Wednesday afternoon.

In the Trinity League:

Rosary 1, No. 8 Santa Margarita 0: Royals junior outfielder Andi Hester knocked in the game-winning run with her walk off double in the bottom of the ninth inning, snapping Rosary’s two-game losing skid.

In the Garden Grove League:

Garden Grove 10, La Quinta 0: Kayla Cornejo, Meredith Miller, Olivia Candelas and Annie Pham each finished with multiple base hits and accounted for all 10 runs as the Argonauts clinched the outright Garden Grove League title. Pham led all players with four runs batted in.

In the Orange League:

Savanna 14, Anaheim 0: The Rebels claimed their 13th consecutive league title in dominant fashion, riding a four-hit shutout from junior pitcher Shyanne Fennel. Senior shortstop Kristin Worley went 4 for 4 at the plate, scoring four runs, driving in three more in addition to stealing her 54th base of the season. Marisa Meza hit two home runs, Sam Kennedy added one of her own and Karlee Rivera tallied three base hits.
