The road to the Sunset League softball championship is never an easy one to navigate and for the Huntington Beach Oilers, consecutive road trips to the diamonds of title contenders last week could have been potential roadblocks.
The Oilers, however, passed both tests.
Huntington zoomed into first place in the league standings by winning both games, most recently, taking a 5-2 victory at Edison April 24.
The win came on the heels of a 1-0 shutout win April 22 at defending champ Marina.
Kristina Inouye, a Cal commit, cleared loaded bases by delivering a double in the top of the fifth inning that led to a 4-0 lead. Inouye led Huntington offensively with a three-for-four day. Sammie Vandiver, a Cal State Fullerton commit, had a hit and scored a run, and Alyssa Horescko had a hit, stole two bases and scored a run.
