The South El Monte Eagles softball team kept the pressure on the Mission Valley League Friday afternoon as it blasted the Rosemead Panthers, 14-3, thanks to a 16 hit barrage.
Junior shortstop Ashley Diaz homered, doubled, and drove in three runs for the Eagles, but she had help. Brittany Zepeda drove in four runs with a homer of her own, while Mia Luques and Alyssa Diaz each drove in two runs. Luques finished the game going four for five, with a double.
South El Monte was also aided offensively by three Panthers errors.
In the circle Sierra Freire started and struck out four in five innings. Luques replaced her in the sixth and fanned three before sophomore Amanda Pimental closed the game by getting all three Rosemead batters she faced.
The Eagles are now 14-5 on the season, the Panthers have fallen to 0-19.
