San Diego Section Softball : Madison Beats Vista, 2-0, in the Semifinals

Madison High School softball pitcher Lisa Glassford threw a one-hit shutout to defeat Vista, 2-0, in the semifinal round of the San Diego Section 3-A playoff at Escondido’s Kit Carson Park.

Glassford also knocked in the winning run with an RBI double in the fourth inning off Vista pitcher Karrie Schott, who took the loss. Schott had a perfect game until the fourth.

Vista’s No. 9 hitter, Suzi Speckman, denied Glassford a no-hitter with a single in the third.
