LYNWOOD - Providence High softball Coach Joel Curtis told his players they would have to cut down on their mistakes if they were to win their CIF Southern Section Division VII first-round game Thursday against host Firebaugh. "I pretty much told them before the game that we were going to have to play mistake-free ball if we were going to win," Curtis said. The Pioneers didn't do that. Mistakes led to early runs for the Falcons and that advantage grew through the latter innings, ultimately leading to a 12-1 loss on the road for Providence.
