Congratulations SC Westside 11/12's on an EPIC Season!
The Westside 11/12 All Star team made the Sectional Championship in Hoillister but lost in eight innings to a tough Cambrian Park squad.
After winning the district 44 in 5 straight wins, Westside advanced to the Sectional Tournament in Hollister. With two straight victories over Aptos & Hollister, making it 7 in a row, Westside was knocked into the losers bracket by the Cambrian Team.
There, they beat the home team Hollister highlighted by two homeruns from Josh DeSousa to advance to the championship. Needing two victories, Westside played a tough first game. Jared Martin put the visiting Westside squad up one nothing with a solo homerun. Cambrian tied it up in the bottom of the first and then took the lead 5-1 in the subsequent innings. Westside faced a 4 run deficit going into their part of the last inning. With two outs and things looking, grim, Westside rallied for 4 runs on three consecutive hits by Aiden Garcia, Gabe Lopez, and a key three RBI double by Austin Bragg to tie the game. Westside then forced extra innings by holding Cambrian in the bottom of the 6th. Westside would take the lead in the 7th after Jacob Dominguez scored from first on a single by Matt-Matt Torregroza, Cambrian would tie the score in the bottom of the inning and would go on to win in the bottom of the eighth.
It was an epic game and the boys from Westside should be very proud of their accomplishments!! Good luck to Cambrian as they roll thru the Divisionals in Stockton.
Also, it should be noted that as part of the Westside postseason, the 9-10 squad has advanced to the Northern California Championship in Exeter, CA and is in the winners bracket after consecutive wins and will play this coming Wednesday in the semi-finals.
