The final full day of Foothill League softball featured nothing out of the ordinary. Destiny Rodino shut down Golden Valley, as Hart won 10-0 to secure at least a share of the league championship. All the Indians can do now is wait, after Valencia beat Saugus 14-3. The Vikings and West Ranch must play the final regular season game on Thursday. A Valencia win means the third shared title in Valencia’s eight year run atop league. A Viking loss and the streak end’s at seven years.
