Piedra Vista s Jordan Montoya (12) is greeted by her teammates after hitting a grand slam against Los Alamos during Friday s game at the Farmington Sports Complex.
Rain brought a screeching halt to the opening day of the Linda Crabtree Softball Challenge.
Only six games got in the books Friday at the Farmington Sports Complex before rain showers ended play in the middle of the 3 p.m. pool play games.
Piedra Vista has two plans in place to try to finish the tournament today. If the rain continues through the night and into the morning Saturday, games may be played at Bloomfield with each team being guaranteed two games Saturday, and the tournament would go from a bracket to a round robin.
If the weather clears, games may resume at 10 a.m. at the Farmington Sports Complex. If play is able to resume at the complex, the championship game would be moved from 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. with bracket play beginning at
2:40 p.m.
