Wednesday’s Northcoast Section Division III semifinals softball playoff game was so evenly matched and well played from start to finish by both teams that it was a shame that anyone had to walk away with a loss.

Unfortunately for Del Norte, in the end, they had to be the losing team in this scenario.

The Warriors ended another remarkable year on the softball field with a heartbreaking 3-1 loss in 10 innings to Bay Area power Bishop O’Dowd of Oakland in front of the home fans in Crescent City.

It was an effort from the Warriors that was so impressive Dragons head coach Mike Cobb  called  it the best performance he had ever seen from an opposing team in his five years coaching Bishop O’Dowd.
