Kimmie Lockhart, the pitcher for the College of the Canyons, received all the help she needed as Cerritos College fell just short of a comeback bid, 7-5 Friday in Santa Clarita.

College of the Canyons scored at least one run in three of its first four innings, including four in the fourth, opening a 7-0 lead.

Despite 11 hits, including a 1-for-2 afternoon by first baseman Angela Arellano, who added two RBIs, Cerritos College would fall short, snapping its three-game winning streak.
