SAN MARINO — Samantha Fabian could feel a bit of pressure building up when she stepped to the plate with the bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth inning. Fabian, a member of the Foothill 9-10 All-Star Softball team, didn’t let the pressure get to her during her biggest plate appearance of the playoffs. Fabian grounded a two-run single to center to give Foothill a 4-3 victory against San Fernando in an opening-round game of the Section 2 Tournament on Friday night at Huntington Middle School.

Nine-year-old Ben Guzik remembers when he was in the hospital last year after he broke his left arm. It wasn’t fun, he said, but when hospital staff offered him colored pencils and paper to do some drawing, his spirits lifted. “When I got to do art I was happy because it took my mind off it,” Ben said. Now Ben and other students at Glenoaks Elementary School are helping to bring art supplies to hospitalized children through an art supply drive organized by the school’s PTA. Over the last two weeks, Glenoaks students have amassed materials like finger paints, markers, crayons, yarn and scissors to donate to the art and music therapy program at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.

CANYON COUNTRY — Facing elimination and the only team to have defeated them thus far in the postseason, the task at hand for the Foothill Major Softball All-Stars was daunting enough before a pair of harrowing pregame incidents. While making the trek to the Canyon Country Little League complex, Foothill's Julia and Claire Smith and Sophie Georges were in the Georges family car when it reportedly overheated and burst into flames. Stranded on the side of the freeway not far from an enflamed vehicle, they were fortunate to flag down teammate Catie Spencer's family en route to the game.

GLENDALE — Staring directly at the possibility of heartbreaking defeat, the Foothill Major Softball All-Stars hardly played the part of a bunch of downtrodden Little Leaguers, according to co-Coach Tyson Howard. "My girls, even though they're down [two runs] in the ninth, they are dancing and singing and just having the best time," Howard said. And after the bottom of the ninth, there was even more reason for dancing and singing, as Foothill pulled off the latest in a line of dramatic victories, as it rallied for three runs in the bottom of the ninth inning late Sunday night to defeat Westchester Del Ray, 7-6, in the semifinals of the Southern California State Championships Tournament at Ken Hubbs Little League complex in Colton.

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.
