Playoff softball

Canyon’s Haley Carmona makes a throw across the field during a game earlier this season. The Cougarettes defeated Georgetown East View 7-6 on Monday to advance to the area round of the Class 5A playoffs.

GEORGETOWN — With their backs to the wall, the Cougarettes persevered through tough challenges from Georgetown East View in back-to-back contests to win their Class 5A bi-district playoff series 2-1.

Canyon (22-2) also weathered a literal storm that caused chaos with regard to the initial series schedule.
