Imperial Valley College's softball team has never beaten Pacific Coast Conference rival Palomar College.
Friday, IVC tried to break that streak as it battled the 16-time defending PCC champion at IVC.
The Arabs, though, couldn't break into the win column against the juggernaut, falling 10-0 after five innings as the game was called due to the 10-run rule.
"The score looks worse than it really was," said IVC coach Jill Lerno. "Yes, we lost 10-0, but that's not indicative of the way we played them."
The Arabs played solid defense at times, but three errors turned into six Comet runs.
Maria Hansen-Perez gave up only four earned runs for the Arabs, but walked nine batters. She gave up seven hits and struck out three in five innings.
