Softball wins in 12 If Colfax High girls softball coach Laura Campbell was looking for some extra work for her team with the start of Pioneer Valley League play today at 4 p.m. at home versus Bear River, her Lady Falcons got it Monday. Playing visiting Marysville in cool and breezy conditions, the Lady Falcons used freshman Ashley Scott’s clutch single in the bottom of the 12th inning to single home Marqi Bearry for the winning run in a 5-4 non-league victory. The win moved Colfax’s record to 3-2 after the team defeated Bear Creek and Pittsburgh and fell to St. Mary’s and Armijo at last weekend’s St. Mary’s Tournament. Top hitters for the winners included Cassandra Campbell and Jorden Gerlach who both doubled. Cara Spence pitched all 12 innings for the Colfax win, scattering six hits while striking out 14 and walking four.
