CANYON COUNTRY — For five innings on Thursday afternoon, the Foothill Major Softball All-Stars allowed rival Quartz Hill too many chances and squandered the few they were afforded.
Unpredictably, it turned out to simply be setting the stage for an amazing Foothill comeback.
Held to just one hit over the first five innings and down by three runs entering the final inning, the District 16 champions rallied with seven hits, two walks and seven stunning runs in a come-from-behind 7-3 win for Foothill over Quartz Hill in the opening game of the Section 2 Tournament at the Canyon Country Little League facility.
"They're just a great bunch of girls, they don't give up," said Foothill co-Manager Tyson Howard, whose team is now 3-0. "We haven't really been down. To see these girls come back really makes me happy. It was impressive."
