Bruins survive scare, rout second foe

STOCKTON — Bear River’s Pioneer Valley League champion softball team survived a scare in the first round of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV playoffs today, but routed its second-round opponent.

Bear River advanced to the Division IV semifinals with a 9-0 win over Ceres in game two Tuesday. They will play East Union at 5 p.m. Friday.

In game one, the Bruins came back from one-run deficits in each the seventh and eighth innings before Jenna Wermes drove in the game-winning run in the 10th inning with an RBI single for a 4-3 victory over Oakdale.

The Bruins return to the field tonight, facing Ceres — which defeated Foothill earlier today — in round two. A win would place the Bruins in the section semifinal. A loss would send the Bruins into the consolation bracket.
