Action heated up in the APL Women’s Softball League Saturday featuring a nail-bitting finish between ADZTech and the Islanders. Even with the game pushing their two-hour time limit, it took all seven innings to eventually decide the winner with ADZTech getting a 10-9 victory in walk-off fashion.

Picking up in the bottom of the 7th, Sherika Cabrera had the game winning run sitting on 2nd base in teammate Coleen Quinata. Facing Islanders Pilar George at the mound, Cabrera knocked a huge double to allow Quinata to spring in safely to steal the game 10-9 on a back-and-forth contest.

The Islanders were rocking the early 5-1 lead in the 3rd inning before ADZTech made their comeback. A pair of wild pitches followed by a sac-fly from Coleen allowed ADZTech to jump ahead 6-5 to complete a four-inning 3rd.

George answered in the top of the 4th with an RBI single, but ADZTech responded with two more runs to hold an 8-6 lead through four complete innings.

With the umpires calling for time, the top of the 6th inning was supposed to be the Islanders last at bat facing the two-score deficit.

Kiyoni Yamaguchi tied the game at eight in the top of the 6th inning with an RBI single with loaded bases. Meagan Maratita managed to keep the Islanders off the board with two strikeouts to close the top of the 6th.

ADZTech needed one run to win the game, and they nearly got it off a single from Dorean Calvo, but Calvo was unable to beat the throw to first base, negating her potential winning RBI.

Errors would hurt ADZTech in the top of the 7th with a pass ball giving up their lead as the Islanders mounted a 9-8 advantage. The defense managed to keep the deficit by a single run before the sticks came alive in the 7th.

Quinata was the beneficiary of Cabrera’s big hit, giving ADZTech their second win in Week 2 of the APL Softball League.

In the later game, Juice would defeat Wildfire 12-2 via 10-run rule.
