In a key Sunset League softball game where the winner would keep pace with league-leading Los Alamitos, it took 13 innings to decide Tuesday's game between Edison and Marina, and it was the visiting Chargers who survived to score a 4-3 victory over the Vikings.
Junior Nicole Zapotoczny's single in the top of the 13th scored junior Maddy Hickman for the winning run as Edison fought back from a 2-0 deficit through three innings. The teams were tied at 2-2 through seven and each scored a run in the eighth. Senior Jamie Sullivan's first of three hits on the day, a two-run home run in the bottom of the first, gave Marina a 2-0 lead.
Senior Ally Hecht started on the mound but sophomore Sammy Cordova (5-0) came on in the fourth inning to get the win, striking out 15 along the way. Marina freshman Tera Blanco (10-1) suffered her first loss. Each team had 10 hits.
