AURORA | One inning into Saturday’s Class 5A state semifinal contest, it looked like every one other game for the Eaglecrest softball team during its fantastic season. A day after piling up 27 runs in two mercy-rule shortened wins at the Aurora Sports Park, the top-seeded Raptors put up a five-spot in the opening inning against fourth-seeded Fossil Ridge with a rally that included a grand slam by senior Braelyne Crenshaw. The end result of the game, however, was quite different than Eaglecrest was used to, however. Coach Yvette Hendrian’s club launched a seven-run rally in the final inning, but didn’t do enough in between to avoid a heartbreaking 20-16 loss to the SaberCats, who went on to fall to 10th-seeded Legend in the state title game.
