After a week of rained-out games, the Imperial High softball team got things going last week in explosive fashion.
In games Wednesday and Friday, Imperial outscored its opponents 46-1, giving it some momentum heading into Imperial Valley League play.
Leading the fireworks was 16-year-old junior Andrea Thompson.
On Wednesday in the Tigers' 21-1 shellacking of Vincent Memorial, Thompson finished with two hits, three runs and an RBI. She picked up the win on the mound, combining with teammate Lindsay Lugo on a one-hitter.
Thompson outdid herself Friday, going 3-for-5 with two home runs, four runs and four RBIs as Imperial beat the tar out of Antelope High of Welton, Ariz., 25-0.
"I don't think it was just me. The whole team played well in those games," said Thompson. "Our offense was really good and that made pitching easier."
