Some high-school softball highlights from Monday

Before I jump to the softball highlights from Monday’s action, I wanted to fill you in on three key games in South Puget Sound League 4A today (Tuesday).

There are two tiebreakers necessary in the North Division. Sixth-ranked Tahoma faces No. 7 Kentlake at 5 p.m. at Kentwood. The two shared the division title for the second straight year and split their regular-season games. The winner gets seeded No. 1 into the semifinals of the SPSL 4A tournament. The loser is North No. 2 and must win twice to get to the semis, where No. 10 Spanaway Lake (SPSL South champ) awaits.

Auburn Riverside plays Jefferson at 4 p.m. at Beamer to determine the North Nos. 3-4 into the tourney, which begins Thursday at the Kent Service Fields.

In the South Division, No. 8 Puyallup takes on Rogers at 7 p.m. at Heritage Park (Rogers’ home field) in the final regular-season game. Rogers won 9-4 the first time around. They currently are tied for second place, so the winner will be No. 2 and the loser No. 3.
