With a Thursday split, the Sutter High varsity baseball team finished second out of 20 teams at its own tournament, the Sutter Spring Classic. 

The Huskies beat Shasta 5-3 in the semifinals and fell to Woodland in the championship 11-2. 

Top hitters against Shasta included Jason Crooks who went 2-for-3 with a two-run double, Cory McIntyre’s 2-for-4 day and Austin Jones’ home run and two RBI. 

Brandon Taddy recorded the win in relief, firing two innings to get Sutter into the finals. 

In the championship, the Huskies fell to Woodland 11-2. Sutter only had three hits, led by Jones, who went 1-for-3 with a double, James Tapia 1-for-2 with a triple and Taddy 1-for-2. 

Suter (16-7) resumes league Tuesday when it takes on Wheatland on the road for a 4 p.m. scheduled contest. 

Willows 9, Marysville 4 

Marysville gave up five runs in the bottom of the sixth to fall to Willows 9-4 Thursday on the final day of the Sutter Spring Classic. 

Daniel Jones finished 2-for-4 offensively with a solo homer and two runs scored. Devon Conway added a 1-for-3 day with a couple RBI with the bat. 

Marysville (11-6) hosts Gridley at 4 p.m. Monday. 

Woodland 6, Colusa 5

Despite a valiant effort, Colusa saw a bid to reach the championship game at the Sutter Spring Classic slip away Thursday as they were edged by Woodland in extra innings.

Facing the Wolves’ Oregon State bound lefty Cooper Hjerpe, the RedHawks showed no fear jumping out to a 5-1 lead capitalizing as Hjerpe struggled with control and sloppy play from his infield.

Yet Woodland rallied for two runs in both the fifth and sixth innings to tie the game and pushed across an unearned run in the top of the eighth to which the RedHawks could not answer.

Blake Steidlmayer and Drew Brabury finished with two hits a piece while Leo Guzman, Conner Saso, Clayton Angus and Cody Free each singled.

Up next for the Colusa RedHawks (20-5) is a showdown in Winters on Tuesday to determine control of the Sacramento Valley League.
