El Dorado High softball coach Marci Brown was pleased with the Cougars’ performance in the fifth inning of Tuesday’s Sierra Valley Conference home and season finale against River City.

Three runs wasn’t enough as El Dorado (3-9, 9-15) ended its season with a 14-4 loss to River City.

“I asked them to fight back, and they fought,” Brown said. “We didn’t have it until they realized ‘oh wait a minute, this can’t be it.’”

River City led 14-1 going into the bottom of the fifth inning before El Dorado’s rally. Maria Gadow and Deanna Herrera were issued back-to-back walks and Katie Harris singled to drive in Gadow. Trinity Jackson followed with a single to left field to plate Harris before a River City error put Joshlyn Wright on and drove in Jackson for the final run.

River City took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning but El Dorado made it 2-1 in the bottom half when Harris walked, stole second and third scored on a passed ball.

In a non-league home game Monday, the Cougars had eight hits. Harris, Jackson and Wright had two hits each, and Kailey Olcott and Monique Wilson had one hit each.

El Dorado celebrated Senior Day as Harris, Gadow, Herrera and Olcott were honored along with their families.
