La Quinta High’s softball team won a crucial Garden Grove League game Friday over Santiago 6-1, setting up what could be the key league game on Monday.

Ella Magga had three hits for the Aztecs, including a triple. She scored two runs and drove in one run, in addition to playing solid defense at second base. Nevaeh Gomez singled and tripled and pitched seven innings, yielding no earned runs. She struck out seven batters and gave up two hits.

Karen Dam had three hits, two RBI’s and a stolen base. Hilary Huynh added two hits and two runs scored.

With the win, the Aztecs are 5-0 in GGL play and 9-4 overall. The Cavaliers are 7-6 and 5-1. Monday’s game will shift to the Santiago diamond. A win by La Quinta would give the blue-and gold a two-game lead with four contests left on the schedule.
