  • Softball: Toppers lose playoff game in extras

    RIO RANCHO — For a pair of very evenly matched teams, seven innings wasn’t enough to settle anything Thursday.
    In the first round of the Class 4A softball playoffs Thursday morning, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers and the Del Norte Knights needed an extra inning to determine who would move on to the opening round of double-elimination play.
    But the Knights got the critical hit when they needed to Thursday at Rio Rancho High School. Clean-up hitter Gabby Moreno dropped a clean single into the outfield to score Deja Sisneros from third base to give her team a 5-4 extra-inning victory.
    The loss Thursday morning to ninth-seeded Del Norte eliminated eighth-seeded Los Alamos from the 2011 state playoffs.
