Pacifica High’s softball team rallied to catch and defeat La Habra High 3-2 in eight innings Friday afternoon at the Mariner diamond.

The Highlanders scored twice in the third to take a 2-0 lead, but the hosts responded with two of their own to knot the game up and eventually send it into extra innings in the non-league contest.
