La Mirada softball succumbs to Mayfair in Suburban League first place showdown

By Loren Kopff

The most heated recent rivalry in the Suburban League softball world went Mayfair’s way this past Tuesday as the Monsoons edged host La Mirada 1-0. The win pushed Mayfair’s league mark to 11-0 with one game remaining in the regular season while the Matadores dropped to 9-2 in the circuit.

The lone run came in the second inning when Kylee Brown plated Ashlee Snyder, who had begun the frame with a double. The Monsoons, who tied with Cerritos for second place last season, won their third league title in the past four seasons. La Mirada was the defending league champion.

In other Suburban League action, the Mayfair baseball team edged La Mirada 4-3 this past Tuesday to clinch at least a share of the league title. It’s the third straight season Mayfair has finished in first place, either outright or with a tie. The two teams ended the regular season on May 9 against each other at Mayfair.
