Orestimba built a 7-0 lead and went on to defeat host Los Banos 9-6 in junior varsity softball action last Tuesday.

The Lady Warriors got on the board with two runs in the second. A Rosa Parkin single was the only Orestimba added three more in the third. A two-run double by Amber Wooters was the big hit of that frame.

After scoring an unearned run in the fourth, Orestimba stretched its lead to 7-0 an inning later when Jackie Lujan belted a lead-off homer.

The Tigers cut the lead with three in the sixth, but Orestimba countered with two in the seventh. Back-to-back triples by Parkin and Lolly Herrera produced the first run. Herrera later scored on a grounder.

Parkin, Herrera and Lujan each had two hits on the day. Emily Lopez, Joslyn Sotelo, Wooters and Gisel Mendez also hit safely for the Lady Warriors.
