The Gavilan softball team started off slow but still defeated visiting Monterey Peninsula 5-2 in the Coast Conference opener Tuesday.

“I think we learned a lesson about the tempo of the game,” said coach Nikki Dequin-Thompson. “We changed the intensity and turned the game around. We should come out strong right from the start on Thursday.”

The Rams (6-1, 1-0) will face Cabrillo at home Thursday.

Dani Hernandez received the win, and Amanda Rosevear handled the catching duties.

Hernandez stuck out 6, walked 1 and gave up 2 runs on 4 hits.

Monterey Peninsula College scored both its runs in the third inning. Ashley Rappa got on by fielders choice, Shiloh Cabatingan had a base hit and Renee Halcon hit a double to score the two.

For Gavilan, leadoff hitter Julie Broyer got the Rams going offensively. She had 2 hits, 2 stolen bases and scored 2 runs.

Danielle Scibuola also got hot at the plate. She had 2 RBIs, 2 hits (one a double) and 2 stolen bases.

Other offensive highlights for the Rams included Alicia Reese with a double, Audra Brown with a 2-RBI single and Amanda Rosevear with two hits and a stolen base.
