No. 2 Woodcreek's Amanda Horbasch struck out 13 and allowed two hits this afternoon but it still wasn't enough to stop top-ranked Del Oro's relentless roll toward another Sierra Foothill League girls softball title.
Del Oro, the three-time defending league champs, scored once in the fourth on an RBI by Jordan Courage and that held up for a 1-0 victory at Roseville's Mahany Park.
Courage struck out six and scattered three hits to pitch her fourth consecutive shutout and help hike the Golden Eagles' league record to 10-1, 15-3-2 overall. Woodcreek drops to 9-3 and 18-3 overall. The Timberwolves also lost 3-0 at Del Oro April 19.
Courage also drove in all the runs and pitched a shutout in that game, too.
The two teams have one more league meeting on May 8 at Mahany Park.
