Panthers take Golden Eagles

After a slow start, City College’s softball team dominated Feather River College Feb. 15 with a final score of 12-3.

In the first inning of play, the Panthers had two doubles and a runner on third. An error by Feather River College allowed the runner on third to score, ending the first at 1-0

After some wild pitches and an earned run in the second inning by Panthers’ starting pitcher Meghan Wantz, City College softball coach Tim Kiernan decided to bring freshman pitcher Erikka Burke to the mound.

“(Burke) shut them down,” said Kiernan. “She came in, and stopped them and got the win.”
