Area College softball: Mt. SAC spilts two, not must sweep Cypress to win CCCAA state title

BAKERSFIELD — Mt. San Antonio College has been in this
situation before.
But can the Mounties do it again?
If Mt. SAC expects to win the school’s fifth state softball title
and its second
in a row, the Mounties will have to.
Mt. SAC is in this position after splitting two games Saturday at the
California Community College Athletic Association championship
tournament at Bakersfield College.
The Mounties dropped a 2-1 setback to Cypress in the semifinals
before coming back to score a 7-4 victory over Cosumnes River, who
they pounded, 12-0, in the opener on Friday, in an elimination game
Saturday night.
Now Mt Sac (38-12) will face Cypress for the state title at noon. The
Mounties must sweep two games from the Chargers, who are seeking
their first CCCAA state title since 2006. A second game today, if
necessary, will be 30 minutes after the first game.
Mt SAC, which is in the state title game for the seventh consecutive
season, was in this position last week when the swept two games from
Fullerton to win a super regional at Cerritos college.
But it won’t be easy, especially against Cypress, which looked
formidable in its 2-1 victory on Saturday.
The Chargers got a solid seven innings from Alyssa Freight, who gave
up just four hits. Cypress pushed across a run in the sixth to take a
2-1 lead.
Mt. SAC, getting two RBIs each from Korinne Randazzo and Samantha Sloniker, came back to advance to the championship round with a 7-4 victory over Cosomnes River.
