Two more play days to go in the District One regular season. Several Delco squads are on the playoff bubble. The district tournament brackets will be finalized on Thursday (assuming District One doesn’t screw things up).

Here is the latest Softball Super 7.

1. Springfield (19-0)

The Cougars narrowly avoided their first defeat since last May when they outlasted Cardinal O’Hara in 12 innings Tuesday. They’ve now won 23 in a row, but started the week as the No. 4 team in the District One Class AAAA playoff race.

2. Episcopal Academy (21-2)

EA has a rematch with Penn Charter Friday. PC is undefeated, EA’s only league loss was to EA. It’s a date!

Episcopal is No. 2 largely because of its 8-3 win last week over previous No. 2 Chichester.

3. Chichester (17-1)

The Eagles have passed all but one of their critical late-season tests, including a 4-1 win over Villa Maria, whom they may seen again in districts.

4. Cardinal O’Hara (10-5)

The Lions nearly ended their regular season on the highest of highs Monday afternoon. They’ll begin their Catholic League title quest Thursday at Conwell-Egan. O’Hara lost to C-E, 9-6, during the regular season.

5. Interboro (12-6)

The Bucs have won four of their previous five games to pull them within striking distance of a District One Class AAAA postseason berth.

6. Ridley (13-6)

The Green Raiders closed out the regular season with back-to-back losses to Haverford and Coatesville. They sat in 11th place in the district standings at the start of the week, so chances are they’ve lost out at an opportunity for a home playoff game.

7. Radnor (10-8)

It’s been quite a turnaround for the Raiders, who began the year with five straight losses. With wins in six of their last seven games, their playoff prospects look good.
