For all intents and purposes, El Camino Real High needed only two innings Thursday to claim its third consecutive City Section 4-A Division softball title and seventh in the past eight years.
The Conquistadores scored twice in each of the first two innings en route to an 8-3 victory over West Valley League rival Chatsworth at Cal State Northridge.
Alisha Knopf had two hits and two runs batted in and Jenny Fleming added three singles and an RBI for El Camino Real (23-3). Chatsworth finished at 13-6.
