2015 NSCIF Softball Playoff seedings, Dunsmuir will host but Mt. Shasta hits the road

It seems every season, the NSCIF playoff seeding process leaves people wondering what the…. The 2015 softball playoffs are no different. Mt. Shasta was ranked number-one in NSCIF Division-V playoff points on Monday, but wound up as the five-seed and will be heading to number-four Durham (previously ranked 5th). One possibility for the drastic change is that somehow, despite not playing this week, the Bears (22-7) dropped to number-four, and then swapped places with Durham (18-10) because Durham beat Mt. Shasta at a tourney earlier in the season, when they were missing their top pitcher. It might be less of a mystery if the section would bother to post the updated playoff points rankings that were used by the seeding committee on Saturday morning.

Dunsmuir (13-7) did hold onto its number-three ranking and will host number-six Fall River (12-15-1) in a Division-VI first round game.

Trinity (13-14-1) was seeded ninth and will play number-eight Esparto (11-2) at Quincy. The winner will play top-seeded Quincy (19-6) the same day.

Etna (12-14-1) is number-ten and plays Modoc (17-11-1) at East Nicolaus, with the winner playing number-two East Nicolaus (19-10).

The three-seed Mt. Shasta Bears fell to the number-six Pierce Bears, 8-3, on Friday in the first round of the NSCIF D-IV playoffs.

Pierce (14-14) put up a pair of runs in the first inning on two errors and a double.

Pierce upped its lead to 4-0 in the top of the fifth inning.

The Bears broke the shutout in the bottom of the fifth. Cedar McRee singled with one out, and scored on a passed ball, 4-1.

Mt. Shasta narrowed the gap to two runs, 4-2, in the sixth inning. With two down, Abe Radabaugh singled. A double by Pierce Nebiolini plated Radabaugh. (more…)

Errors end Miners season

Yreka v Lassen Front 2 copy

The second-seeded Yreka Miners gave away the first game of their semi-final doubleheader against number-three Lassen on Friday, 7-6. The Grizzlies simply took game-two, 12-4.

Yreka led game-one, 5-3, going into the top of the seventh, but four errors led to four runs for the visitors, putting Yreka in a 7-5 hole. The Miners managed a run in the bottom half of the inning, but came up short.

Yreka held a 3-2 lead after two innings of the second game. However, Lassen plastered 10 runs on the board in the top of the third inning, with a Yreka error once again contributing to the Lassen cause.

The high point for Yreka came in the bottom of the third inning of game-one. Cade Parker led off with a big fly, and Derek Howard followed with a dinger, for a 4-1 Miner lead. (more…)

Lions crush Cougars to advance to D-V semis

Etna v Weed Front copy

The Etna Lions made short work of the Weed Cougars on Friday, 14-0, in five innings. Looking at number-two Etna’s 24-6 record compared to seven-seed Weed’s 8-16 record, it might have seemed that a rout was inevitable. However, the Cougars had handed the Lions their only loss in the Shasta Cascade League, and also defeated them in a tournament earlier in the season. On the other hand, Trinity’s only league win came against the Cougars.

As Weed Coach Josh Oates said a couple of weeks ago, “Baseball is a strange game.”

However, there was nothing strange about Etna’s first inning. Peyton Dickinson reached on an error, stole second base, and scored on a hit from Harrrison Hogun. Dickinson leads the Lions in runs scored, and Hogun leads the team in RBIs. Hogun found his way home on a passed ball, 2-0. (more…)
