KING CITY — King City High School’s Malaya Carrillo had a great week, and once again helped the varsity softball team win both of their games.

In game one, the Lady Mustangs had a rematch with their South Monterey County rival, Soledad Aztecs, who they beat 14-1 in their first game. 

The Aztecs put up a fight in the rematch, but unfortunately ran into Carrillo, who threw a two-hitter and was able to keep the Soledad offense to one run, as the Mustangs got the win 3-1. Julia Mendez had two hits and an RBI in the win.

Game two was more important because it was a Mission Division league game against another rival, Gonzales Spartans.

Last year Gonzales and King City split their season series at 1-1. Both games were close, and once again they played another close one.

Carrillo put up another great performance, as she only allowed the Lady Spartans to score one run.

King City shortstop Sage Flores collected two RBIs, as she gave the Mustangs two runs, which was enough to secure the victory 2-1.

The Lady Mustangs now move into first place, and will be in action again on Wednesday against the Pacific Grove Breakers.
