The Thornydale 9/10 Softball All-Stars saw their season come to an end with their second loss in the Arizona State Championship Tournament.
A fast start and strong finish propelled Gilbert to a 7-4 win over Thornydale in an elimination game.
Gilbert scored the first four runs of the game, plating three runs in the bottom of the first and adding a single run in the second.
Thornydale answered, scoring four in the third, tying the game 4-4. Unfortunately for Thornydale, it was the only scoring they could muster on the night.
