From Staff Reports:

Looking back, it won’t necessarily be Tuesday’s 5-4 loss at the hands of visiting Chadwick that will drive the Mayfield softball program crazy when thinking about what could have been.

It was the May 3 loss to sixth-place Westridge that will, because the Cubs players and coaches would be the first to tell you that it was a game and a team they should have handled, and it would have made today’s loss irrelevant.

But Mayfield found itself in a situation where a home win clinches the outright Prep League championship and a loss, made it a tri-championship with Poly and Chadwick.

The latter became the scenario.

Jaylin Domingo got the loss in the circle, despite allowing just two earned runs.

Domingo didn’t walk a batter and struck out six.

Domingo did her share at the plate, going 1 for 3 with two RBIs.

Julia Watson hit a solo shot for the Cubs.

Malayna Domingo doubled and scored.

Mayfield will close out their 2018 regular season slate with a nonleague game with visiting Carnegie Schools of Riverside at 4 today (Wednesday), and then they’ll wait for the weekend for CIF to post the softball playoff brackets.

Box Score:
C: 0-0-0-4-1-0-0-(5)
M: 1-0-0-3-0-0-0-(4)

Records: Chadwick (11-3, 9-3); Mayfield (15-6, 9-3)
