The Monrovia High School softball team was shut out by Beaumont High School Thursday in a third round CIF-SS Division 5 playoff game with a spot in the semifinals at stake.
Beaumont pitcher Alyssa Fuimaono stifled the Ladycats all afternoon in a complete game shutout to advance to the fourth round. Monrovia pitcher Adrienne Guerra also threw a complete game, but surrendered four runs in the process.
The closest MHS came to scoring was in the third inning when Guerra led off with a single and center fielder Elise McCarthy reached on a bunt single. But then Fuimaono retired the next three batters to get out of the jam.
The Monrovia baseball team will attempt to advance in its own third round playoff matchup at home Friday at 3:15 p.m. against Jurupa Valley.
