This time, the scorebook didn’t look so messy.
The last time Coast Union and Cuyama Valley met for a softball game on May 10, 2011, it resulted in national attention.
Cuyama Valley won 48-47 in seven innings, making it the highest scoring total in high school softball history. The previous record was set April 28, 1983, when East Machias Washington Academy (Mass.) handled in-state opponent Lubec 88-6.
After The Tribune story ran, ESPN mentioned the game on the tail end of that night’s SportsCenter. Yahoo Sports! picked up the story and wrote a blog about it. All the coverage placed a bright spotlight on two small schools that normally wouldn’t get that kind of attention.
Would there be an encore?
On Tuesday afternoon, the teams met for the first time since that fateful day in a Coast Valley League game, but the final score is rather tame compared to last year’s.
Coast Union 16, Cuyama Valley 5.
With the win, the Broncos improved to 5-7 overall and 4-1 in the CVL behind first-place North County Christian (5-0). Coast Union’s Remy Corbet gave up three runs and one walk in three innings, Sage Radecki had three hits with a triple and two RBI and Gabby Bucio had three hits, including a double and four runs scored.
Nikki Ortiz added a three-run triple for the Broncos, who will host North County Christian on Friday at 3:30 p.m.
