Roundup: Canyon victory has a big payoff
With a share of the Crestivew League title at stake, Jill Jenkin slugged a two-run home run to help lift No. 6 Canyon to a 3-1 victory over visiting Yorba Linda on Saturday morning.
The Comanches (20-7, 4-2) finished the regular season tied with the Mustangs (16-7, 4-2) and El Modena (19-8, 4-2) for first place. Based on tiebreakers, Canyon will go to the playoffs as the league's No. 1 representative, and the Mustangs received the league's other guaranteed playoff spot.
For the Vanguards to get into the playoffs, they'll need to receive an at-large bid. The playoff pairings will be released Monday afternoon.
