PASADENA — Just 24 hours after losing out on a chance to win a Prep League championship outright due to a loss to Pasadena Poly, the Flintridge Prep softball team entered Thursday’s rematch with new life and the hope of earning a split of the league title.
Unfortunately for the Rebels, part two of the Prep-Poly series turned out much the same as the first.
Despite finding their own offensive groove, four defensive errors and some clutch Panthers hitting proved to be the Rebels’ downfall in a 10-6 road loss in both teams’ regular season finale.
“The big difference today was errors,” said Prep Coach Julie Jaime, whose club fell to Poly, 10-2, at home on Wednesday. “I know our pitcher went two in a row and there’s, I think went three in a row, and that’s just hard to do. …We put up the hits, we’ve just got to keep it down with the errors.”
