Winters 11, Colusa 1
A return to the NSCIF Division IV title game for the No. 2 RedHawks didn’t go as hoped for when they fell 11-1 to No. 1 seed and defending champion Warriors.
In a game originally slated for May 18, and postponed until May 21, Colusa found itself down 2-0 after the first inning but closed the gap when Cole Simmons chopped a ball into the five-six hole to plate Ethan Lay who had reached on a walk.
Unfortunately for the RedHawks, it would be their only run of the game, although they did have another chance in the top of the sixth, but could not capitalize and left the bases loaded.
Colusa (23-8) who last won the title in 2014, finishes the season as the section runner-up.
