    MOUNT SHASTA – The Mt. Shasta Bears followed up their Shasta Cascade League clinching sweep of Modoc last Friday, with a 7-5 win over the Trinity Wolves this Friday in the first round of the NSCIF Division-III playoffs. Mt. Shasta (12-9) came into the contest as the four-seed. Trinity (12-14) was seeded fifth.

    Trinity was first on the board via a lead off triple and an RBI ground out, to lead 1-0 in the top of the first inning. (It would be great tell you who, but the numbers on MaxPreps don’t match up…a lot of work for the coaches to get that right, ya know.)

    The Bears answered in the bottom of the opening frame with a run. Dylan Morris singled to lead off, and stole second. Andrew Campbell singled, moving Morris to third base. Morris scored on an error on the play, making it 1-1.

    Mt. Shasta took the lead in the bottom of the third inning. Cesar Rocha led off with a single and went to second when Morris attempted a sacrifice bunt. Morris wound up safe on the play when Trinity was unsuccessful trying to get Rocha at second. Campbell sac bunted both runners up 90 feet. Ben Sampson tripled, plating Rocha and Morris, giving the Bears a 3-1 advantage. (more…)

    valley-tire-red-300.jpgETNA – The Mt. Shasta Bears baseball team came into Friday’s double-header against Etna tied for the Shasta Cascade League lead with Modoc at 4-2. After a split with Etna, the Bears are tied for second with Fall River at 5-3. Modoc won it’s first game against Weed on Friday, but had the second game snowed out, leaving the Braves in first place at 5-2. Etna is still in the hunt at 3-3, with double headers remaining with Burney (2-4) on Monday and Fall River on Friday. Modoc has a make up game left against Weed, and the Braves and Bears close out the SCL season in Mt. Shasta on Friday.

    Some of the possible scenarios are:

    Modoc wins out, and wins the SCL outright.

    Mt. Shasta wins out and has at least a share of the title. They would win outright with either a Fall River or Etna loss.

    Fall River would have to win out and hope for a Modoc loss to have a shot at a share of the title, or two Modoc losses and a Mt. Shasta loss for an outright crown.

    Etna would have to win out and hope for a Modoc loss to have a shot at a share of the title, or two Modoc losses and a Mt. Shasta loss for an outright crown. (more…)

    ETNA – The Mt. Shasta Lady Bears will three-peat as Shasta Cascade League softball champions. That became a fact, after they swept the Etna Lady Lions on Friday, 8-4 and 13-1. The only remaining question is whether or not it will be an outright title or shared.

    The Lady Bears are 8-0 in the SCL, with just a double-header against Modoc (3-3, 8-5) next Friday left in their league schedule. Etna (4-2, 13-10) is two games back in the loss column with double dips against Burney (0-6, 3-15) on Monday, and Fall River (5-3, 11-8) next Friday. The Lady Bears magic number for the outright crown is one. Any Etna loss or Mt. Shasta win equals Mt. Shasta’s third straight undisputed SCL championship.

    Game-one of the Etna v Mt. Shasta double header was what fans have come to expect when the Lady Lions and Lady Bears tangle—close and hard fought. Etna was first on the board in the bottom of the second inning, when Brittany Dean walked and scored on an RBI by Tiana Besoain.

    Alex Peruzzi singled in the top of the third inning, and Tori Weatherford drove her home with a double for Mt. Shasta’s first run, tying the game at 1-1.

    Etna went back on top, 2-1, in the fourth inning, when Tandy Thackeray walked and scored.

    The Lady Bears put up a pair of runs in the top of the fifth inning, to take their first lead of the game. With two down, Sejay Sarti doubled. A single by Weatherford plated Sarti. Weatherford went to second on the throw home. Weatherford stole third base, and scored when Kayla Spini reached on an error, giving Mt. Shasta a 3-2 lead. (more…)
