Newbury Park 2, Moorpark 1--Oli Keohohou collected both hits for the Panthers and scored both runs, including the game-winner on a head-first slide in the sixth at Moorpark.

Newbury Park (11-3, 4-0) tied the score, 1-1, in the third when Keohohou hit a two-out triple to right and scored on a wild pitch by Tara Barker.

Chaminade High recently showed it could be a force long after Stanford-bound pitcher Maureen LeCocq graduates. But that information came at a lofty price. Freshman Christina Lupacchini pitched three innings of effective relief last week in a 6-3 nonleague victory over Simi Valley after the right-handed LeCocq, The Times' Valley pitcher of the year last season, dislocated her left shoulder.

It was fairly clear from the start: nothing would stop Westlake High's softball team from avenging an embarrassing loss to Newbury Park. Not even a fence. To set the mood Thursday, Westlake's Tiffany Meadows denied Oli Keohohou of a leadoff home run to start the game by making an over-the-shoulder catch before barreling into the break-away fence in center field. "I do love that catch," Coach Barbara Jordan said. But Jordan loved the victory more.

From the first inning on, Sonia Zapata nursed a strained abdominal muscle she injured stretching for a ground ball. The Canyon High shortstop proved a bigger pain in the side of the opposing West team Monday in the 14th San Fernando Valley all-star softball game. She had three hits, drove in two runs and scored twice, including the game-winner in the bottom of the ninth, to lead the East to a 4-3 victory at the Glendale Sports Complex.
